I stayed at my sister’s house for a month so I could care for Dad. He is ninety-one years old, blind, lives alone, and has Alzheimer’s. My sister is Dad’s primary carer, but was away with her husband, doing missionary work in Tanzania. They were setting up micro-banks in remote villages, so the people there can set up their own small money-making projects.
I was at her house over May and June, which is early winter here in Australia. The poinsettia in the front garden was in full brilliant colour.
One day, after a rain shower, I grabbed my camera to capture the brilliant colour and the lovely water drops.
Beauty is everywhere!
