Blog Image – The cornflower dragon by M Lossl June 2018
We planted a mini wildflower meadow in a trough and have watched it grow. It’s now home to minibeasts and food for bees. This caterpillar in all his hirsute splendour, is the cornflower dragon, defending his blue and green realm. Well, that’s what Reuben and Sebby, my grandsons, believe. Family stories under the summer sun, bringing joy.
A Sunday morning treat
By the Abbey in Bath, my husband and I sat down to an al fresco breakfast. As we sat sipping coffee, the Abbey bells began their joyful call to prayer. The honey coloured city, warmed by the summer sun, echoed. Voices stilled, to listen. Eyes turned to the ancient church. Edgar, the first king of the English was crowned there, in 973. In 2018, our hearts were crowned with joy, by the merry pealing of the bells.
