MACRAZAMIA PODS AND A BEACH WALK

If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.


I have a macrazamia palm. growing in my front yard.

Macrazamia palm.
It is probably about 15 years old and was grown from a seed collected from the bush on the New South Wales south coast. After all this time it has grown its first seed pods.

The seeds will eventually turn red,  but I don't know how long this will take.


P:-) and I are taking a course for couples at our church. It isn't religious at all.
P:-)  and I both had marriages that failed after 30 years. I have done a lot of reading about relationships and it seemed like a good idea to take advantage of the course.

Twenty-eight couples attend each Wednesday evening. Tables are set up for each couple.

The course covers areas such as, Building Strong Foundations, The Art of Communication and The Power of Forgiveness. Part of the time is taken up with partners discussing various aspects of their lives with each other. Some of it is quite challenging, but I think it will be very worthwhile.

This morning Mum and I took a stroll around Belmore Basin and had a coffee. It was a beautiful morning.

We walked by North Beach.

  1. That's a very impressive pod! It must be very satisfying to have grown it from scratch.
