Some of the daffs are still flowering,tulip buds unfolding, Sparaxis, wisteria ( forgot to get a photo of the delicate mauve blossoms)blue forget-me-not everywhere, grass is growing, and the weeds think it is time to show us how they thrive!!!
this one started as the palest bulb, and turned into deep pink.
There are several this shade, but none as frilly.
There are 5 bulbs of these daffs, the others have faded, two are still so delicate and beautiful
The English Elm has pale leaves and loaded with flowers on every branch and twig.
These are the pale flowers, that dry to an almost transparent casing, and blow everywhere in even the slightest breeze.
The Weeping Silver Pear tree is so delicate, and really pretty.
I emptied the rain gauge into the pond and Boris thought he might jump in after he heard the splash.
I am slowly healing, and remind myself to NEVER help lift a can of petrol ever again. Hugh’s shoulder is back to normal, he has had the pre-op check up at Whanganui Hospital last Thursday. and tomorrow, bright and early, has cataract surgery. The first one 2 years ago went well, so I hope this will be the same. Same surgeon, back form the UK for a very busy catch up of 6 months appointments. The only drawback to this , is he cannot drive for about 3 weeks. I might just see if there is a “chauffeur” available.I will be open to all offers, overseas applicants can also apply, food and board for free, air travel is your own expense!!! Please email for job specifications!!!!
