Baby Bird, Chicken and Honouring Jo Cox

22 Jun

We are seeing many birds at our feeders, two Woodpeckers this morning and later three baby Blue Tits. What a delight.

We went to Kehelland to buy more compost for planting in. I love to see the chickens roaming free there and the eggs are delicious.

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.

    This post got me teary….the more I learn about her the more I feel the loss to our shared world. I wish it didn’t take a senseless murder of someone like her to wake people up to the value of loving each other. A phrase I used yesterday on a Dalai Lama site on FB: “We all belong to each other.” Love to you — I hope you know you are appreciated! Your posts are better than most of my breakfasts at starting my day off right!

      I, too, have been tearful about this senseless murder and so sorry that I didn’t know more about her before she was lost to us all. The good thing, if there can be one, about her death is that people do seem to be waking up and expressing love in a hitherto unsaid way. Her husband is a star too.
      I do feel your appreciation and am very glad that my thoughts and photos help to kick-start your day in a positive way.
      Love to you too. 🙂

    Your garden sounds like a baby bird nursery! How wonderful! The poem is just perfect for #LoveLikeJo – I think many of us have felt a bit “broken” by Jo’s death.
