About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

    I’ve never seen this variety of bromeliad!!! (Your first picture.) I must have one. Do you know the name??? It is just outrageous. My redwood deck in the redwoods in CA was a perfect environment for bromeliads, which are one of my favorites, and I had every variety I could find, but I’ve never seen the equal to these outrageous blue ones. Thanks for sharing. http://judydykstrabrown.com/2015/09/24/lost-the-ones-that-fortunately-got-away/

    These are so beautiful! Such different flowers from what grow in my zone. The vibrancy of color reminds me of many things I do grow; it’s the shape and texture that is different, and pleasingly so.
