I feel I received the most marvelous gift this morning. I got up early and went down to the park. The sun was low still and caught the soft fluffy plumes of the toitoi in its warm glow as I went down the path. But the special gift was the on the grass - the sun's rays were at just the right angle, and the whole sports ground looked like it had been covered with silver from the dew on each blade, and caught on a million spiderwebs. Breath-taking!
