Poem-a-day, Cornish Blue Sky and Garden Sculptures

01 Apr

1   My lovely sister-in-law, Victoia, in Atlanta, emailed me to remind me about the Poem-a-day throughout April and the next email was the first poem! If you, too, are a lover of poetry, as I know several of my lovely followers are, you might like to subscribe free at   You never know what’s going to come into your inbox!

2   The sky today has been the vividest blue and the lovely Mr S fixed up our new weather vane.

3   We also planted something rather special though not conventionally beautiful, more a kitchen sculpture, my Mum’s old panstand! Each year we grow our runner beans up it and I know my Mum and Dad would have been tickled pink to know how we are putting it to use, there being no space in our kitchen for its proper use.

    I love your garden! What a unique idea to place the pan stand there–it looks like it was made for that spot after all 🙂

      Thank you for your like and your comment. Sorry for the delay in replying – no internet in Senegal. I’ll be planting the runner beans to climb up the pan stand soon. I’ll let you know how they get on. 🙂

      What a lovely thing to say! I like the idea of my posts being your yoga. We are away to Senegal tomorrow to our son’s wedding so I’ll be missing for over a week. I’ll look up your posts on my return and see what you’ve been cooking up. Hope you like today’s post!
