More Than A Botanical Phenomenon

Kowhais will be flowering on the ridge. Deep yellow cups, hanging from slender branches almost bare of leaves. An annual playground for tuis. The valley will be disguised in camouflage. Splotches of the same yellow, along with various shades of green.

I may no more see the ridge in its September glory but imagine that kowhai will always represent for me something more than a botanical phenomenon.

Now i feel more comfortable (but in a good way) can drop of from that frog jumping in to the ancient pond one, and just sip away, knowing the cups can never be drained, no really. A thousand people can tell you something, but this time i heard. Hope it lasts or comes back fromt time to time at least eh.
