I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

Is there anything more magnificient than poppies?? They are bold and yet so soft.Their petals fall slowly with the wind.I didnt even plant this poppy this year.It came out of the compost,lying dormant through the winter only to grow when Jake put compost all over my garden.This one raised its head and decided it wanted a new life.
Thats what life is like.No-one knows the beginning nor the end.Only God.

Taihape has been given a shake this afternoon.

An earthquake struck about 10 kilometres north of the central North Island town just after four-thirty this afternoon.

It measured 5.3 on the Richter scale, but was centred at a depth of about 50 kilometres.

Its just a little baby one sweetie! NZ is one big fault line but were OK..this was 200 miles away:)

Yep, our wee land straddles the good old Ring of Fire. Exciting to think of all that pent up energy lying waiting beneath us!

I love the heartiness of some of God's creations. Out of the dirt, the compost or even through the cracks in the sidewalk, bursts forth a creation of colour, determination and beauty.

We could learn a thing or two from the poppies, dandelions, pansies etc.
