Kindness, Daffodil and A Poem

Doing some sorting today, I came across a scrap of paper with a quotation I had saved.

If you haven’t read The Essex Serpent, do. It is a fascinating story and very beautifully written.

One of our Daffodils was broken off by the wild winds so I brought it indoors.

The words above are from a very moving poem by Philip Larkin, reminding us all to be kind.

The Mower

The mower stalled, twice; kneeling, I found   
A hedgehog jammed up against the blades,   
Killed. It had been in the long grass.
I had seen it before, and even fed it, once.   
Now I had mauled its unobtrusive world   
Unmendably. Burial was no help:
Next morning I got up and it did not.
The first day after a death, the new absence   
Is always the same; we should be careful
Of each other, we should be kind   
While there is still time.

Mural, Plastic Bottles and Cacti

The mural outside one of my favourite shops, Just Delights, has recently been done for winter. The mural is changed each season and pleases me every time I drive through to choir.  To find the others, put mural into the search.

After singing today, I did my shift in Fannie and Fox, the lovely gallery in Penryn where my glass now sells. It is a real pleasure to sit among so many beautiful things. Here are some for you to see.
