There's a sea of lilies in our backyard- aren't they beautiful? It must be arum lily season. There is an elderly lady who sells bunches of them tied with string outside the supermarket. I wonder who buys them? They seem to be growing wild everywhere, but still, she patiently waits for customers.
Thank you to Anoushka who sent me some of her illustrated cards, all the way from Switzerland. And this gorgeous tote bag. I feel a bit like that head-standing woman this week, although I think my actual gymnastic days are over.
Today is a happy one for the New Zealand arts community: local writer Eleanor Catton became the youngest ever writer to win the Man Booker prize for her novel The Luminaries. Go Eleanor!
