The last 2 weeks have been a bit fraught with Hugh’s returned pain, need of crutches every morning, and all the associated things that go with that. This morning I decided it was high time I was out in the garden for some of our own nature’s beauty. The Scarlet Oak leaves are true to the name, stunning on the tree, and brown on the lawn. Wow, if only I was that tall in real life!!!
A Rhododendron has 2 blooms, both stunning against the greenery,
A small Azalea hedge shows some pink blooms, and in the area where we have firewood trees, the Lawsoniana cones, small, and numerous, are almost a luminous grey/blue shade.
When I walked to the front and looked back to our home, the grass was almost frosty, Bruce and Kath’s motor home bus parked handy to the front door.
The Scarlet Oak tree.
The Rhododendron, there are two blooms like this.
We have a small Azalea hedge, the early morning sunshine was bright, just in this spot.
Maybe in another 10 or 20 years, this Lawsoniana tree will be big enough for firewood.Meantime, I so like the way the small cones fall, almost a pale turquoise, nature’s beauty right here.
My shadow, at 10.16 a.m. wish I was so tall. And just on case you have any doubts, here I am at Piropiro Flats, with Finn, one of the three young men here on holiday from Germany
Finally, the motor home bus, some smoke from the chimney, and white lawns.Bruce, the intrepid quad bike rider, if there is trouble anywhere, he will find it, and then Hugh to the rescue,They have had some great times together.Can you see his trailer under the elm tree, ( The quad bike is safely tucked away in another part of the garden) it is always part of his and Kath’s travels.
Quotation of the day
“ Look no further than your own back yard, to find beauty there every day”
