As usual, we went to the Growers' Market first thing this morning. It was slightly later than usual and was about 7.15 a.m. when we left the market and stopped to drop some library books off when I took this photo of the Jacaranda outside Forum North (The Town Hall).
We bought our usual avocados, tomatoes and kumara plus some peaches. When I got home and put the peaches out the scent was strong. It always takes me back to my childhood. Usually, in summer, my mother would take my brother and me from Surrey to Oswestry in Shropshire to stay with her sister. We had to change trains (and stations) in London and mother would buy a peach and with a lovely small knife that she carried would divide it into three and we would all enjoy this rare taste.
25 ° today and still no sign of rain although I see some forecast for later in the week - have not heard more of where the cyclone is headed after doing its worst in Fiji but even if it comes our way it will be downgraded.
