It was a lovely day coming home from my break and I took these few photos from the bus window when we stopped at Paihia in the Bay of Islands.
When I got home the man who built our house (way back in 1973) had delivered me another load of firewood for the pot-belly stove (I had just bought a load for the wood burner). Doug who came and watered my garden for me while I was away also stacked the firewood. Lynn, my hairdresser gave me the lily head, the Amaryllis, which now has two flowers out, was a bargain pack I bought just before going away. The seedlings are nine bundles from Awapuni. In spite of the 28 degrees C today I have managed to plant half of them. I see 30 degrees forecast for Tuesday. Way too hot for me.
