two blooms

scream for justice scream for peace scream for a slightly cheaper nespresso machine... hang down your heads for sorrow...

here the ginko's last leaves left are a luminous golden joy i would keep as a treasure to last my whole life long...

we've had these before but their world brightening powers are still bursting out all over... show me the way...

trip advisor

postal joy this week petals when mrs i like's new book plopped through the letterbox on just the dark and gloomy sort of lunchtime when sunny daytrip dreaming is just the very thing and cheese on toast at the kitchen table poooofs into a knickerbocker glory at the harbour bar scarborough the soggy leaves of the magnolia go topiary brilliant and i'm lost in the rhubarb triangle...

a little while ago (about last tuesday) this* lovely new to me (i know i know the gaps in my records that really need to be heard list are getting deeper longer all the things gaps do) record sang out and then went what next sailor? where do we go from here? so i sent something i hoped might suit right on back and it only turns out this was going on all over the gosh darned place so as now there's a blinking whole mess of connections to work out a kerfuffle full of whys and whats and whos... i'm buggered if i know any more than a couple so far but then i'm only up to marty robbins... if you get any do let me know now won't you dears...

*allen toussaint - go back home

so listen along you clever clever people and get spotting...

this lovely treat popped through the post box all birthdayey a little while ago from the always generous and kind white and winsomes and really is quite the very thing... i suspect the wee cherubs thought the dashing cover snap was gift enough but i'm really very taken with dickie's extended play all round... ta ever so petals

from them to me to you...
