We have a number of Clematis over the arch in the vegetable garden and this year the purple ones, Warsaw Nike, are the most floriferous that they have ever been,eight flowers already and a dozen buds to come.
The poet, Brian Bilston, has given me permission to post his new poem here. It’s for all of us who are outraged at the current circumstances, for those of us who have spent a life protesting and who are still at it when we can. A group of us, choir friends, would have been at the Black Lives Matter protests on Sunday morning but as we are self isolating, we will be lighting candles instead. I think it was written for our Dear friend, Ti, too.
