1 Our Callianthus Acidanthera are coming into bloom just as some of the other flowers are fading. They are very elegant and lovely.
2 We went sailing today knowing that the wind was going to change and it did but we had a lovely sail and it was just a bit exciting!
3 This beautiful and moving poem came my way today. Thank you Bob #irememberthechildren

The day I’m killed,
my killer, rifling through my pockets,
will find travel tickets:
One to peace,
one to the fields and the rain,
to the conscience of humankind.
Dear killer of mine, I beg you:
Do not stay and waste them.
Take them, use them.
I beg you to travel.
