and plan a time of fun.

Diamante poems are such fun here’s another one that I wrote after my recent visit to Jackson’s Coppice to see the bluebells. (See previous post)

ancient, sturdy,
breathing, living, being,
branches, limbs, leaves, flowers,
growing, spreading, blooming,
delicate, fragrant,

fun, creating
mini garden pond.

This is a project I have been preparing for a while. I will write about it on Monday and will include photos.


Tiny Tom, my grandson, came to play,
running round the garden having fun
in the sun.
the sky is grey.


I’m taking another short break,

I’m off for some fun,
to find me some sun,
I’ll be back at the end of next week.


“Planning is an unnatural process; it is much more fun to do something. And the nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression.”

Sir John Harvey Jones
Business Guru. Former Head of ICI

This has to be one of my all-time favourite quotes!
