Just thought it apposite to close this lovely and loving day with 2 Normaphotos:
I, with an espresso gift from Daughter...
... and to all, an arrangement from Norma's work in our garden.
To those readers who expected a poem on this post, I can only quote that lovely man, G.K. Chesterton, who wrote,"Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese." I can only say it is now 7 p.m. and my brother-in-law just left after giving me a waxed round of Camembert --Marin French Cheese-- and I am thinking of trying it. Wish me luck!
Both very artistic.ReplyDelete
Thanks Emma, hope you had a lovely day.Delete
As much as I love poetry and cheese, I've never thought of using them both in the same sentence. But I have written some cheesy poetry on occasion....ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing these sweet photos!
Jon, to the cheesy among us, myself included, even a Babybel of Mozzaella composes a heartfelt sonnet --but don't eat the wax! And thanks again for the piano clip.Delete
Geo., those are great photos!ReplyDelete
Thanks Lon, will relay compliment to Norma!Delete
A lovely Valentine Day arrangement....well worth preserving in print. I wonder WHY there are no poems about cheese? I mean, so many words rhyme so well with it. Cheese, please, sneeze, trees. ..I could go on, but, I won't.ReplyDelete
Dear Delores, if it puzzled Chesterton, it puzzled a better mind than mine. If anyone has an answer, I send pleas upon my knees.Delete
Maybe you SHOULD write a poem about cheese.Delete
:) ... Love, cat.ReplyDelete
Kind Cat, love reciprocated.Delete
Lovely as art, but now are you going to cut the cheese?ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jono, as always I will cut the cheese while giving that special "who *arted" look at the person next to me.Delete
Norma's heart of flowers and flowers is simply beautiful. May I link to this post sometime in the near future, Geo.? I was going to write about art from nature's found objects and this is a wonderful example.

oops - I meant flowers and feathersDelete
I asked Norma and she has no objection to such a link.Delete
Thank you and thank Norma for me, too, please?Delete
Such a kind face you have, appropriately so. That's a lovely flower arrangement too. How was that cheese?ReplyDelete
Have a very nice weekend.
Hopefully, my old face reflects only kindnesses done to me. We ate half the cheese on crackers yesterday with a 2013 Malbec from Lodi. It is very good! Best wishes and thanks, Robyn!Delete
I love the arrangement...such a great expression of Valentine's Day!ReplyDelete
Brilliant photos too...☺...and why, I wonder, has no one written a poem about cheese?
Hope it was delicious!
Have a great weekend ☺☺
Thanks Ygraine, It was delicious and, as to your question, I don't know --there seems to be more competition than cooperation between poetry and cheese but I can't explain it.Delete
Me gusta mucho tu blog.ReplyDelete
Tambien sus fotos.
Gracias por tus aportaciones en mi blog.
Gracias Anna. Su comentario es muy amable y bienvenido.Delete
Thank you for posting on my site. Yes, my 20 days (today) is the longest I have ever not indulged in my pipes in many, many decades myself. It is not really how I wish things were, but it is where I currently find myself. To me, pipes are fully and wholly enjoyable in every way.
I have been been enjoying your blogs. I am not sure if there is one that is preferred for discussion comments, but I liked the images you had with this entry, so I figured I would post here. Please correct me if you would prefer comments more on one of the other sites.
I am in awe of your Lenten abstinence. Have found myself unable to entirely give up my nicotinic meditations --but am working on it, making progress. You're welcome to discuss, opine, comment on any or all of my 3 blogs. "Trainride Of The Enigmas" consists of silly essays --you're familiar with my 2 (mainly) poetry sites. I check them all via comment moderation app. which runs everything through g-mail.Delete
Nocotinic meditations is such a beautiful and accurate way to state the hobby of the pipe! I do miss them greatly, but believe my Lenten vow is having me grow.ReplyDelete
I find espresso a fine indoor aide de la méditation. Especially since Norma abhors smoking unless I commit it in the great outdoors.Delete
Oops, I noticed I had a typo... it should have said "nicotinic". My apologies.ReplyDelete
No apologies needed, Prof. You should get a load of some of my typos.Delete
i am poet and less like cheese Geo.ReplyDelete
gifts from loved ones are something that refresh the button of "connection" between relationships .
may you see many love days with your precious family and friends,amen
Thank you, Baili. Please accept my good wishes to you in return. In gentle gifts, there is tremendous strength.Delete
