These lilies bloomed this morning, in bright sunshine, on Hugh’s birthday.
Beautiful colour for golden years as some of our friends say.Are they so sure of that phrase??
The stems are so tall I had to tie them up with ribbon.
Poppy waited near the pot with a Hebe in it, stretched out almost in the shade .
The shade went, the rain came,and came,and came.We had a DELUGE.
I took these just before 9 p.m. with my camera on NIGHT setting. I can now see the rain spots on the lens.
The night sky has this wonderful hue, but it was not there for long,by the time I walked back
from the Tutaenui stream the colours had gone to black.
A great day, with cards, emails,phone calls, gifts and cake.What more could a man ask for.
Quotation of the day from Dylan Thomas, 1914-1953
“There I could marvel my birthday away but the weather turned around”
