The days merge into each-other. Medication schedules, doctor’s visits, hospital appointments, phone calls to see if, when, will the referral ever be sent!!! Family visit,from the far south. I sit outside with younger daughter, I’m huddled up in fleece jacket, collar pulled up high, warm slippers, fingers curled round the hot coffee mug.
“ Bit cool this morning”
“ Oh, this is just lovely, not cool at all”, and after Otago weather which can be freezing in winter, cool in spring, so hot in mid-summer, and just right in autumn, our days were welcome before they returned home.
A while ago we had a day out, one of the very few, and had lunch on the stones bordering the Manawatu River.
By the bedroom patio, the Tibouchina grandiflora tree is showing promise of so many blossoms, it is loaded with buds.This had a rough start in life, it was planted in the open, was frosted, over and over, till it almost died, We moved it, and for several years, it had a frost-proof veil every night, and sometimes all day. That has evidently saved this beautiful tree , and the extra effort was so valuable. The common name is Lasiandra.
It grows from this……
