Leaves within leaves


We have had a good day and I have been given an early birthday present that is sending me off to look at more places to visit when we are in the UK. The book is called "In a Unicorn's Garden" and I am loving it, so glad I got it before we went away as there are places to see and visit all near where we are going in Northumberland and Yorkshire.
A very dear friend who has had a hip operation has his 70th Birthday tomorrow and we went to visit him and had lunch, saw through their lovely new house and drooled in envy. He always says he is older than me but only by a few days and I should show him the respect he deserves, which of course I dont.
We also went to the Native orchid show and I bought another dendrobium, I hope it does well for me.
So a day in Adelaide catching up and being social which is something we very rarely do.
Tonights Haiku is by Buson

What use now are twigs
but to sweep up
a litter
of fallen petals?
