Remembering The Magic Of Nanna’s Garden: Welcoming Butterflies & Bees To Our Modern Spaces
In a time where the hum of modern life is louder than ever, there’s an unmistakable sense of nostalgia that engulfs me as I think back to days long gone. The age of sprawling homesteads and gardens seems to be fading, as land is sliced and diced to accommodate more houses in our rapidly expanding towns and cities. The essence of Moreton and the Sunshine Coast, with its unhurried charm and sprawling greens, feels threatened.
You may still cherish those golden moments when, as a child, I’d spend hours in Nanna’s garden, chasing elusive butterflies or marvelling at the persistent bees hovering over blossoms. We fear that the future generations might miss out on such simple, unadulterated joys of life. It’s a dream, and also a mission for many, to recreate those pockets of magic for our children and grandchildren, despite the constraints of modern living.
