So many V's come flooding into my mind - she had a vacation to go and see the vixen and when she had verified its value she retired to the veranda to have a little fruit of the vine...etc.
But then I thought of all the Vera's I have known, (or known of) and in particular Vera Lynne, close to the hearts of World War 2 Veterans and their sweethearts, and so I found this endearing video to send your way, - full of nostalgic memories, sighs, and the odd tear or two for those of us of that Vintage.
A faint but very beautiful late evening rainbow last night. I handed the camera to the expert and original owner, our son David, - come to visit.
During the night there was a heavy rain, but by six o'clock the garden was fresh and fragrant, full of pretty shadows and small drops of the night shower. I went out to pick flowers for the Pentecost altar, and gathered some newly bloomed peonies and gorgeous iris.
Well, nobody else was up and the coffee had not quite finished perking
so I stayed out to take some pictures.
This afternoon, after a wee nap, I succumbed
to temptation and all the lovely textures that have
come my way of late, mostly thanks to Kim Klassen who
