Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

A mystery gift.

A few weeks ago, my sweetie and I were visiting a friend. Just as we were leaving, Mary gave me a hanging basket, containing three very small fuchsia plants. I never expected to have flowers this season, but am delighted to see two large blooms on one of the plants, and a smaller bloom on another.

Please open up and show me your pretty faces.

It's a pretty one. Will you take it inside to overwinter?

The fuschia is lovely and hopefully you will get lots of blooms before the weather changes. I like the addition of the swiss chard to the tub, ingenious!
