A LONG WAY FROM HOME

This little shrub, called Iochroma cyaneum, is a long way from its home in South America.  Back there it is pollinated by humming birds.  Here in New Zealand the bees are doing the best they can…

shorter days
but memories of warmth
and honey
to take into
the long night of winter
