of summer grass
The butterfly is the NZ Common Copper (Chrysophanus enysii), a small butterfly that enjoys the summer months from December to February. Not sure about the white flowers – too small for Convulvulus. The others are wild sweet pea.
bumbling of bees
the grateful mystery
of a radio
where did we lose
the simple ability
to really listen
with our hearts
to the silence…

…that I haven’t been around. Family time.
Not to forget Fred and Bert
Wishing you all a very happy New Year.
Our morning walk by the river…
…the chicken is unusual
Here is my servant, whom I uphold,
my chosen one in whom I delight;
I will put my Spirit on Him
and he will bring justice to the nations.
He will not shout or cry out,
or raise His voice in the streets.
A bruised reed He will not break,
and a smouldering wick he will not snuff out…
I will keep you and will make you
to be a covenant for the people
and a light for the Gentiles,
to open eyes that are blind,
to free captives from prison
and to release from the dungeon
those who sit in darkness.
A prophecy from Isaiah
For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given…

My camera didn’t seem to want to focus on the white blossom…
