Autumn in Paris

We’ve just spent the last 4 weeks walking through the countryside in Italy and France. Although it was autumn the weather was brilliant – warm and dry. We spent a few days in Paris before flying home and enjoyed a day trip to Giverny to see Monet’s garden. It has to be one of my most favourite garden’s ever. The picture above shows the garden in bloom last week.

It’s actually feeling more like autumn in Dunedin right now but my flowering freesias and poppies assure me it’s spring. While we were away this article appeared in the ODT. I also received a bundle of free post envelopes from NZ Post in response to my application to Community Post 2009, so that was a pleasant welcome home.

Right now I’m finalising the poems for summer and then I’ll be off to the printer. Look out for the summer edition early December.
