Goodbye to Temenos and McGregor

And so we came to the end of our stay in the peaceful retreat of Temenos and left the village of McGregor, most reluctantly, it has to be said.  A few fleeting pictures as we left include a posy of pink daisies and dark blue lavender at one of the shrines in the gardens

A mother duck quacking her way through a profusion of daisies in pursuit of her duckling, happily paddling in a lei water furrow.

Strolling along one of the dusty roads in the later afternoon this glowing diamond light of cobalt and ruby caught my eye.
The stained glass fanlight window of a Victorian house, framed by white wood work and a honey-coloured wooden door, show off an intricate lotus blossom pattern.  When did we stop making such exquisite entrances to our houses?

The colour I remember most from my visit, pink in all its hues, soft, saturated, sizzling, muted, or bold.

We left McGregor rested in body and spirit and ready to face the remainder of 2009.  I hope that 2010 will be a year of peace, happiness and prosperity for everyone.

As always, a wonderful heartwarming flash of colour from you, just what we need here in snowbound England! Your posy at the shrine looks quite lovely.
