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

Signs of Autumn
The days are noticeably cooler, dusk comes earlier and the drifting leaves are starting to carpet the ground.
Autumn shades are coloring the hydrangea blooms
and the fern is looking sad and weary. Soon many of our perennials will be resting, gaining strength to burst forth come Spring. I will also be resting, ordering seeds from catalogs, planning where to grow my new plants, and looking forward to warm spring weather.
