So, meantime the sun continues to shine, with clouds in a blue sky. Taken from the front lawn.
The cats obey self isolation very well, Boris spends a lot of time by himself in a comfy chair on the back deck
Moxy, the new boy, gentle, affectionate, snuggly, is a dream. His story will come later, as we are in a turmoil with self-isolation, more cases every day, so far no-one in ICU, and no deaths.
The garden continues to bloom, late Cosmos, very bright Hollyhock, and lots of Nerines in a bright red/pink.
The other Hollyhock have well and truly finished, and this one attracted some bumblebees. One flew in as I tried to focus on the one flower.
Guess I need to save the seeds here too. They are so pretty.
I haven't managed to learn photo editing on the Macbook, guess with at least 4 weeks at home that will get a place in the queue. Curtains, a birthday present to make, thankfully I did get lots of threads, lots of batiks,( Yes, I know maybe too many ), What, did I hear someone say never too many fabrics, a pile of batting, interfacing, freezer paper, steam a seam or similar, and a pattern for a bag.
New Zealand is now so different to what we knew just last week, the frontline hospital workers at all levels are working extra hours, the supermarkets ditto, limiting the number of shoppers in at any one time, markers on the floor so they keep a distance, our Doctor's surgery has the door locked, And when you arrive, have to give your name and they will call you in when ready.
So I leave you with these thoughts.
Be so thankful for family, friends, faith, and as our Prime Minister says, every day,
No quotation for today would fit in with what is happening world -wide, I read of the numbers of positive cases in each of your parts of the world, and so hope and pray with all my heart that you all, and your families and friends stay well.
Greetings from Jean.
