Suffragette Garden, Blue Sky and A Poem

08 Sep

The Japanese Anemones, the Verbenas Bonariensis and Lollipop and the Hebe are all flowering in my Suffragette Garden.

The sky has been a glorious blue today, here under and over the viaduct.

A young friend with a daughter about to go off to University is finding it hard (even harder, of course, for anyone in these Covid times than it was for us 20 years ago) but the words of Kahlil Gibran, that I have often read at Baby Namings, is still appropriate for all parents to remember.

    Yes, a very lovely poem. It reminds me of a man who, when I mentioned I liked his dog, said it wasn’t his dog. He explained that the dog belonged to himself, not to his “master.” It’s a good thing to keep in mind with our companion animals as well as with our children.
