Life sometimes plays out in mysterious ways.
On Sunday March 1st 2009 I was on this pier after spending most of the morning seeing my father in a nearby hospital. Quite a few of you will have been aware that he had been ill for a long time. I had left the hospital to have a break before intending to return and see him a little later. During the ten minutes that I was on the pier, and just after I had taken about a dozen images in the wet, I received a phone call telling me that he had died peacefully in his sleep aged 94.
Since that Sunday I have been heavily occupied with family affairs.
Yesterday's posting is of 'Helleborus Corsicus' ... it is a rather robust variety of the Hellebore family ... the most well known being the 'Lentin Rose' or as it is more commonly known the 'Christmas Rose'. My dad was very fond of the Hellebore family of flowers and had many varieties in his garden.
