A note for my family and friends in Holland: From tomorrow we will be 11 hours ahead in time. It will become easier after 27 October 2013, when the clock goes backwards in Holland than there will be exactly 12 hour difference.
The first one to propose daylight saving was entomologist George Vernon Hudson. He would like to collect more bugs after hours and presented a paper in Wellington in 1895 and followed it up with another one after considerable interest came from Christchurch.
I had a nice walk and lunch with one of my best friends. She is going to her family in Atlanta for a few months but will be back by the end of the year. On our walk I shot this picture. The walkway reminded me a bit of home as it was all flatland and cows and horses were grazing in the paddocks.
My husband did a lot of gardening lately and as you see it is looking great.
Today we bought some pots and flowers. I can't wait till they all come up.
