“If I hear music, I just want to dance – body seems to just move!” says dancer Audrey, 84. Poet Brian, 86, says “Poetry helps me to question and understand the meaning of life”, followed by a witty “– haven’t worked out what it means yet”.

As their residents blaze their own trails, Ryman matches that pioneering spirit. “Ryman villages offer living choices to suit everyone so that you can live the way you want.

This lovely little white crocus flowers at this time of the year , in late Summer or after a rainfall.
Name: Zephyvanthes sp.
They grow in sun or part shade.
The plant for sale is growing in a 15cm pot and has one flower on it at present. It has been growing in this pot for a number of years so there should be quite a lot of bulbs under the soil.

Grasslike foliage which grows about 20cms high.
The flower has 6 bright white petals with a yellow centre.

Sorry I don't seem to be able to find better photos of the plant in flower. They're in my computer somewhere.

It does well in pots and in the ground too . Dies back in winter.
Its the sort of little flower that surprises you and makes you smile.

Thanks for looking.
Pickup is in Kuripuni

Price: $10

Gone are the days of getting one qualification out of school to see you through your working life. Now, upskilling, online courses and on-the-job training are all part of making your way up the career ladder. 

We want to talk to people who have completed micro-credentials, bitesize qualifications for specific skills. 

Perhaps you've pieced together a full qualification by doing online courses, or maybe you've taken a workshop rather than investing in a six-month course. We'd love to hear from you - email josephine.franks@stuff.co.nz
