“At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”
Robert Laurence Binyon 1914
D-Day 75th Anniversary
June 6th 2019
A year ago today, June 4th 2013, we set off on our Peruvian adventure trekking to Machu Picchu. My post that day, Machu Picchu -11, featured a gallery of the gorgeous giant poppies that had only recently opened in our patio garden. Of course by the time we returned many of the blooms were long gone but as poppies do they returned again this year with a display just as beautiful as last year’s. It seemed only fitting to celebrate today’s one year anniversary of our never to be forgotten trip with a gallery of this year’s blooms, the first of which I recently posted.
One week to go and the poppies are kindly beginning their display before we leave. (For those of you just joining us see Machu Picchu -27 for the poppy reference). Yesterday (Tuesday) began with coffee with Kiran who is leaving to start her residency in Toronto and a happy meeting once again with Henry (same coffee shop one week later) who was having coffee with his dad. I wonder if he will be having coffee in Machu Picchu when we’re there!
Then it was time for some necessary cleaning and tidying in the studio ready for our return. At some point I’ll post some of my paintings.
