Evelyn was fragrantly, flagrantly waving to me as I passed her by in the rain,
just last drizzly Tuesday.
I plucked her as we left
and her scent filled the car for the whole journey.
Soon enough, we found a shepherd..
well, in this case, Te Aroha...the mountain of love.
It's a little place that we both just seem to relax in.
Surrounded by the comforting sounds of church bells that have not kept pace with the advent of daylight saving & fire sirens that may go off at any time day or night, urgently summoning the volunteer brigade from far & wide.
We stay at the base of the mountain at Aroha Mountain Lodge.
They have become dear friends over the years.
and an abundance of creative people.
There are lots of older buildings & warm-hearted people & the moody entrancing backdrop of the mountain is ever changing & ever present.Second Thoughts Collectables & owners Donna & Pete..
I'll be back very soon with more of our traveling tales.
First of all I need to do some visiting & catching up with everyone.
I am so glad that you're here!
Thank you for popping in to see me.
