Marigolds, Mum and A Poppy

After singing at the eco park this afternoon, this lovely bunch of marigolds in a blue painted trough caught my eye.

My lovely Mum died in 1994 and these words of Tennyson  ring true. She was the gardener who inspired me.

Another gloriously orange flower, one of the Californa Poppies.

Spring Posy, Music and Street Art

I visited friends this afternoon and took a little posy of Spring flowers picked from our front garden.

Music restores the soul.

This quotation seems apt for today.

Hope, Positivity and Confirmation

We have several daffodil bulbs up and with buds!

Good advice from Gandhi.

My brother has written today to confirm the story I told you yesterday.  How Sidney Poitier came to hear of Mum’s work, we don’t know  except that she was known within the teaching world for her excellence in teaching deaf children. My brother thinks he had a deaf child himself and wanted to know from the best how to help her.

Bloom, Arundhati Roy and A Movie

I missed this Hydrangea bloom from my blog yesterday, in the front garden. Lots of plants seem fooled by the unseasonably warm weather we are having.

I have quoted Arundhati Roy before and love these words of hers too.

Imagine another world. Arundhati Roy

Dear Reader,  have you watched “Don’t Look Up” ? If not, please do. It’ll set you thinking.

Life is Beautiful

I found this today and it touched me.
I looked up the author and found this “L. R. Knost is an  award-winning author, feminist, and social justice activist, is the founder and director of the children’s rights advocacy and family consulting group, Little Hearts/Gentle Parenting Resources ( http://www.littleheartsbooks.com/ ), and Editor-in-Chief of Holistic Parenting Magazine. Her work has been quoted from Hollywood to D.C. to South Africa, most notably in an address on children’s rights to the South African Parliament by the Minister of Justice. She lives in Central Florida with her husband and the youngest four of her six children.”
I have posted some of her wise words before. Put her name in the search bar for more.

Inauguration Evening Dress, Sky and Snowdrops

This beautiful embroidered dress is such a gentle reminder of the positivity and sincerity of the First Lady. I love too that she is a teacher.
The following is taken from a Facebook post this morning:
“Dr. Jill Biden’s Inauguration Evening Dress had flowers from all 50 States plus the US territories embroidered on it, with the flower of Delaware sewn near her heart and the other flowers branching out from it. What a lovely message from a lovely woman.
ETA: “Inside of the coat, representing the lifelong calling and service of Dr. Biden as an educator is a hand embroidery on the lining with a quote from Founding Father Benjamin Franklin:
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”’
The materials used were existing available fabrics to minimize the impact on the environment.”

The skies were so beautifully blue today, the moon already risen and the apricity so lovely – until the black clouds came over and the hailstorm  swirled around us with the sharp hail bits stinging our faces!
In St Euny Graveyard, on our route down Church Lane on the way to the Great Flat Lode, the Snowdrops are blooming.

School Days, Bryon and Creative Reframes

A filthy weather day so a sorting day and among the treasures unearthed was this school photograph from 1957, first year at Truro County Grammar School. We all look delighted to be there and I do remember being very happy at that school.

1957

This from Lord Byron came my way so I thought I would share it.

I love Nature more…

and this……

Wise Words, Headband and Cake

This came my way today and I share it with you for its wisdom.

Our walk today took us past a favourite Art Deco shop and this headband caught my eye, looks just the thing for our sparkly zoom Christmas parties with my choirs.

This afternoon I used up three over-ripe bananas to make a Cinnamon and Raisin Banana Loaf – scrumptious warm with ice-cream!

Message for my cousin in Australia  – I’ve lost your snail mail address, sorry. Please can you email it to me? xx
