Yesterday’s ginger lilies, this time photographed in daylight, so the colours are closer to what they should be.

This is what I could see last night, propped up on umpteen pillows, in my bed. I was not there for long, however, as we got the dreaded midnight phone call. Pete’s dad had decided to check out of this world and at his age and in his state of health, who could blame him? He died in his sleep, thankfully; no more hospitals or surgery for him to suffer through.

Farewell, Jack. You left a large and loving family behind, quite a legacy.
