My Sunday Photos | Winter flowers inspiring prose

It’s nearing the end of winter in New Zealand, with the days getting noticeably longer and more fine days in between the cold fronts, but still, when the southerly whips up from Antarctica, we need a little hopeful reminder of spring and summer to come.

This weekend, whilst away in our holiday home in Martinborough, in the beautiful countryside of the Wairarapa, I was delighted to find many unexpected blooms of colour in the garden.

I pretty much spent the entire weekend, between showers of rain and looking after a poorly child, taking photographs of flowers, cutting them to fill vases and writing poetry!


The poem below is about the Hellabores I found in the garden.
