We are seeing many birds at our feeders, two Woodpeckers this morning and later three baby Blue Tits. What a delight.
Today would have been the 42nd birthday of the MP Jo Cox who was murdered on the streets last week. People all over the UK and, indeed, all over the world, held special ceremonies at 4pm in her honour. There was no ceremony near us so we made up a bouquet of purple, white and green from our garden and took it down to the beach where we spent a few moments reflecting on her positivity and her saying, in her Maiden speech in the House of Commons, the following:
“We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us.”
And, the strangest coincidence…. Today is also the birthday of Bernard Kenny, the
77 year old man who was hurt trying to help save Jo.
