Yellow, Door Knocker and A Poem

The Kalettes are flowering and make a pretty vase-full. They taste good too if caught before the flowers open so that they are like Purple Sprouting Broccoli.

I spotted this delightful door knocker in Penryn the other day after leaving the optician.

I love this poem. It sums up my blog for me – ordinary things being just perfect.

What happiness looks like by Marge Piercy

 

Some things are ordinary but perfect:
drinking coffee on summer mornings
with you as the cats laze about, fed,
on you or on me or curled together
in the bay window on a sunny pillow.
Outside the weeping beech stirs
in the wind, leaves hanging down
like just washed long tresses.
We talk softly of the pending day.
This is all I would need of heaven
that I don’t believe in, but this
I believe.
