This is my little water lily happy in its new pot getting lots of sunshine. When I went to the water lily farm they told me to come back in November but because I must have look sad, they showed me one which might flower all year round. It's got tiny leaves - Kazuko thought it was clover that I was growing in a pot and Mango, the cat from next door, loves drinking the water every morning. I am hoping it will flower soon so I can see what it looks like. When I was photographing it I could see the reflections of the eucalyptus trees but they have gone. Must be something far to techie for me to cope with.
Sad to say the daylight saving issue has been lost and we must abide with democracy. Thanks for all the offers of candles for the missing hour of daylight at night over the summer - I think instead we will be like all the West Australians residents who enjoy that time in the evening using up an extra hour of the world's precious energy by having to have our lights on so we can see in the dark. On the other hand, do send me heavy and dark eye coverings for when the sun comes up at 4am. Amazing as it sounds I am not planning to arise at that time but I will resent being woken up by the sun and the birds (and the business necessaries as we do deal with the rest of Australia even though I feel a lot of the time that other people in this state don't).
Today we bought ourselves a new washer/dryer combo so waiting patiently until Wednesday when it arrives.
And of course after the weekend, on Friday the Hurricanes play the Chiefs in one of the semi finals. Since Ian has now decided that the Chiefs are, and have always been, his team, we will be rivals. May the best team win.....
