1802

my 6 word for today is
"ginko - a walk for haiku inspiration"

hibiscus buds, photo taken Nov 24, 2015


I grew up in Chaguanas. On the street where we lived, there was the school which i attended, at pre-primary school level. The headmaster of the school lived right next door. We had a lovely flower garden with a green shrubbery fencing. Just opposite, however, from a neighbour's fence would burst, beautiful red blossoms, from time to time. It was delightful standing with my dog Shane, just looking across the street. We didn't have a front gate nor back gate. In those days the community was extremely rural and cordial.
