We got up early to go to the Ohoka Farmers market this morning, its such a lovely way to start the day buying things that are grown with love and care.
On the way home we saw a sign for the Flaxton historic cemetery, we both love to find old graves with the echoes of the past calling. This graveyard was in a paddock with sheep running around and this great old iron gate. There was sadness on the stones, in 1874 a family lost a 10 year old daughter, only to be followed by two teenage sons 20 days later. My heart seems to beat heavier in places like this as if to remind me that time is a luxury we sometimes forget is a gift each day.
We were standing looking at the light in the massive oak tree and hidden behind one of the headstones was a very big furry hare.
Run bunny run!
