Yesterday much of New Zealand had heavy rain, farmland is flooded, bridges washed away, roads closed. Today the Antarctic Polar Blast is moving closer to the South Island. Snow is predicted to fall to sea level along the eastern coastline in Otago . Our sky this morning showed not one skerrick of this, with only a few clouds to the south.
Looking to the South, “misty grey’ was the colour there. Beautiful.
Looking to the West, a few wisps of paler cream, tinged with almost pink. The English Elm tree has lost nearly all the leaves, the birds still find a safe place to rest awhile.
In the garden there are many of these smelly/ revoltingly smelly, fungi. They are a variety of “Stinkhorn” fungi, and these seem to grow from a white blob in the ground. Slimy, not toxic or poisonous, they do add some lightness to the darker places.
Quotation of the day, from Tite Kubo,
“If I were rain, that joins sky and earth that otherwise never touch,
Can I join two hearts as well ?”
