Morning Glory, Kanoko Ami Pants and A Unicorn

1. A vine of Morning Glory climbs around the front porch of my brother and sister-in-law’s home in Atlanta giving just a few beautiful blooms each day.

2. Our nephew and his partner in Washington just became parents to a beautiful baby boy ( Congratulations to you both) so I have knitted a pair of tiny pants for him and managed to get them in the post before we leave USA.

3. Yesterday we went to the glorious Atlanta Botanical Garden where there are living sculptures of creatures all made in growing plants. Suzanne, this lovely Unicorn is for you!

We’re looking forward to being able to walk by the sea again on Porthtowan Beach as we did last year at this time.

Here are some Autumn fruits in the bowl looking just beautiful. Russet apples are my favourites and their season is so short.

Last Few Hours in Paradise

This is where we are spending our last afternoon on Maui, in the lush back garden of Pineapple Inn, by the pool and in a warm breeze!

October 2011

We were in the ┬áSan Francisco Museum of Modern Art when we got the phone call to tell us that my dear, dear friend Kath, in whose name I started this blog, had died. She would have loved the philosophy in this piece of artwork. Kath was one of the world’s beautiful people – always kind, always cheerful, always loving and concerned for the welfare of others above herself. We laughed and cried and put the world to rights together and I miss her.

Beach, Butterfly and Sunset

1. We spent the morning on Oneloa, Big Beach, at Makena and loved the colours, people watching and just sitting under the umbrella in the warmth.

2. Beautiful yellow butterflies fluttered by on their way to the purple flowers behind us. There were dragonflies too but I couldn’t catch one on camera

3 To round off a beautiful day there was a lovely sunset off South Kihei.

Pineapple Inn, Maui

This is where we arrived last night and even in the dark, it felt like Paradise! Let me show you some of the beauty on a short stroll around the gardens. I’m sorry that you can’t hear all the bird song nor feel the warmth though it is cloudy today as the remnants of Hurricane Ana hang around. There was a terrific thunderstorm last night after we arrived though our 39 minute flight from Big Island was not the scary one I had anticipated!
This is our room from the front with our lanai ( Hawaiian verandah)
