Poem, John Clare and Blue Bloom

Here’s a poem by John Clare that resonates with me.

Nature Has a Feeling

All nature has a feeling: woods, fields, brooks
Are life eternal: and in silence they
Speak happiness beyond the reach of books;
There’s nothing mortal in them; their decay
Is the green life of change; to pass away
And come again in blooms revivified.
Its birth was heaven, eternal it its stay,
And with the sun and moon shall still abide
Beneath their day and night and heaven wide.

John Clare, photo  by Natalie Doig, sent to me some time ago.

And a little bit of nature from our garden……

 

Paper Flower, Welly Dogs and Berries

Taking this photo of the rainbow paper flower, I was aware of the Welly Dogs, Tinners’ Hounds, in the reflection.

Just a few moments later as I walked up Fore Street, I noticed two hounds tied to the two Tinners’ Hounds beside a lamppost. That amused me.

There are berries in the front garden. I think they are from a Rose of Sharon that has planted itself.

The last of our family leave tomorrow as our Nephew and family return to Munich. We have spent a lovely evening with them. It has been a busy and thoroughly enjoyable couple of weeks.

Paddling, Painting and Sculpting

Off to St Mawes again today for lunch with my brother and his wife and our youngest daughter, her partner and LiveWire No 4. Paddling and ice creams were the things of choice in the heatwave that is now blowing across the UK.

I enjoyed watching an artist on the road with his palette, painting, I think, one of the pretty cottages but not the sea.

At the beginning of June it was Open Studios and we visited a Woodland Sculpture Garden where I fell in love with a beautiful piece, ‘Finger Labyrinth.’   It has not left my mind and I have pictured it in our garden. Today we went back and bought it and it is now exactly where I had envisioned it and it is perfect.  The garden was great fun for LiveWire No 3 who made her own sculptures.

Garden, Glass and the Beach

After coming to singing with me this morning, I let LiveWire No 3 loose with my camera in the garden and she took some beauties. This is my favourite.

Muker, the copper crow

Both youngsters finished off their glass shooting stars this afternoon.

And, of course, we went to the beach later in the afternoon for another session of dam building and stream diverting.

Having fun

Dogs, Lunch and Cake

As I was on my way to our market in Redruth this morning, I saw that three little dogs had been tied up to our wonderful Welly Dogs and it amused me.

I met the lovely Mr S for lunch today at The Warehouse in Penryn. We had the most delicious meal from the Brunch menu – Potato and Onion Hash and a Garlic Mushroom with a Fried Duck’s Egg!

We bought cake to take home for afternoon tea!

Courgette Cake – also delicious

Kalettes, A Tea-Cup and A Song for You

We are enjoying our fresh greens and purples – our Kalettes. I cook them briefly in garlic butter and the water they were washed in – and they are delicious. Thanks to our allotment friends for giving us the baby plants.

One of our Christmas presents was a freestanding tea cup pouring liquid into a splash. It’s a 3D printed piece based on a Bobby Duke original and we love it.

This song came my way today and pleased me greatly. I want to learn it! Given the crazy politics in our country, we do indeed ‘need each other now.’
