Wardrobe Florals

 

Perhaps not a true floral, however, my

Bamboo Shirts are all of this style.

Then there are nature’s florals…

These Rhodendron images were captured either…

…in or around…

 

…New Zealand’s Taupo or…

…the Hamilton Gardens (NZ).


Bridal florals

 

Finally, there always seems to be

a new floral in the garden.

ANZAC-Day-2022

ANZAC-Day-2022

 

Today, ANZAC Day 2022, in small towns

throughout Australia, New Zealand

and at many sites overseas…

…people of all ages will gather before sunrise

to attend Dawn Services and remember


Wreaths will be laid at local monuments

 

…to acknowledge the sacrifices made by those

who did, and did not, return from

the Great War and all subsequent conflicts

in which the Australian Military

has participated.

In the afternoon

Collingwood and Essendon football teams

will do battle in what has become one of

the highlights of the

Australian Football League calendar.

With COVID restrictions now lifted a maximum

of 100,024 fans will be allowed into the

Melbourne Cricket Ground

to watch the match which will commence

after ANZAC Day ceremonies

are completed with all in attendance

observing a minute’s silence.

Unless stated otherwise…

…North Island.

These last two while still in the

Hamilton Botanical Gardens…

 

…were not part of the Tudor Gardens.

I have to say my most memorable events

are the birth of our two boys and our first grandchild.

The former because I was there.

The latter, because she was, is, a bright note

in a year of lockdowns.

1992

Number 2 at 12 hours.

 

 

Last year in early March (2021)

we received our first photos

of our first grandchild from across the ditch.

She was  born in her mother’s hometown

in New Zealand
