Why the post is titled thus I have no idea – but I changed my mind – ladies are (I believe) allowed to alter their brain thoughts on occasion … are they not?

Nonsense giving us limericks
(The Father of the Limerick)
A limerick – I often start one and then it fades away into ellipses many – to start us off …
There was an old man from Brill
Who designed a straight garden rill
Pebbles were scattered, water filtered through
Fledglings flocked in
Sparrows, robins and songbirds all
Came to drink from the old man’s drill.
Then a little post-tale … as it’s summer in this island … we have rain, we have mist, we have strawberries, we have cricket, tennis, even football … we have had to entertain ourselves closeted in … and so it goes …
Some friends let me know that their newly built rill is keeping them occupied … a fishing net to hand with a long-handled broom help their days along rearranging stones to make bird bathing hollows for sparrows, robins, blackbirds, magpies and wood-pigeons …
June is finished – the next half begins … we hope for more freedom – I’m staying relatively put – I’d like some more sun … but our roses are blooming heartily …
We have a family birthday this weekend – it’s a family picnic time … this time at a famous church, across the fields from the house …
These are packed and flown by
first class post around the UK
… I ordered some Scented Pinks from Churchtown Farm, St Martin’s Island, Scilly Isles – they grow scented flowers all year … narcissi for winter and pinks for summer … for the birthday girl.

with the summer sun
The website is interesting … showing the Scilly Isles, their flowers, while the farm videosare delightful …
Just enjoy – savour the scent … it is wafting around … so wonderful … let’s all have an easier next six months.
