Posy, Poetry and Produce

29 Mar

We visited our dear friend T today and took a spring posy from the garden, narcissi and a hyacinth, all of which are highly scented and much appreciated.

Sharing poems is one of the joys of our visit and today was the turn of T S Elliot’s cats. Later the following quotation came my way and seemed just perfect for the day.

Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T S Elliot, bought in 1965

“I’ll tell you a secret: we don’t read and write poetry because it’s pretty. We read and write poetry because we belong to the human race; and the human race is filled with passion. Medicine, Law, Commerce, Engineering… they are noble and necessary races to dignify human life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love are things that keep us alive” – Dead Poets Society (1989)

Last week I told you about making a veg bag for Community Roots. As a thank you they have given us a bag of this week’s vegetables – what a beautiful bagful!

and more….. potatoes, mushrooms, salad leaves and onions!

      Amazing colours aren’t they? Such a shame that we don’t like eating the Rainbow Chard, luckily one of our neighbours loves it! 🙂

    What a fantastic bag with vegetables. Lovely to see the grown veg and use it.

      I had to call a neighbour to see if she’d like to share the veg in the bag as there was just too much for two of us! It’s good to share! 🙂
