Breathe in


Out the back door
Ginger fragrance
Sends a message
Autumn is near.

You may remember me showing you this part of the garden at Christmas time when the Acanthus were in flower. They die down as summer fades.

Reflection:
Ephesians 5:1-2 (New International Version)
Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children 2and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

  1. it is incredible that as our springs approaches,
    so does you autumn.

    i can't wait to see what that is like.

    if you would say a prayer for my son, max,
    i would be grateful.

    thank you.

  2. Does the fragrance of the ginger come from the greenery or from the roots?

  3. From the flowers. It's a stong floral perfume, that smells nothing like ginger.

  4. So what you have is not the Buderim ginger, but another plant altogether?

  5. Diane, it is cool our average maximum temperature thus far this month is 22C.

    Julie, yes another plant altogether, it doesn't have an edible ginger root. Dare I admit ... this is one of those environmental weeds. I have to cut off the flowers before they set seed if I am to be a good citizen.
