NEW YEAR 2013
I am writing from Prato in Italy where today the temperature was 9 degrees C. This is a dramatic difference to my home in Torquay where the temperature has been 41 degrees. Laurie and I are on a 10 week holiday in Europe where we have begun with a two week tour led by Professor Bernard Hoffert of Monash University. We are busy, starting early every day to visit galleries, churches and other historical sites.
Unfortunately I have not mastered the new technology of an ipad to be able to show you some pictures from our travels. I hope in the next week or two to be able to do so.
My ikebana arrangement this week is of five 'disbud' chrysanthemums in a shallow bowl by Philip Elson.
Greetings from Christopher
