Musing on gardening and life in the heart of rural Wiltshire. Well, erm Chippenham actually...
Very nie poetry Veg, I like it very much also creatively done.HAPPY VALENTINE:)TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILYJoAnn D-eyes/NL
I like your poem ... Happy Valentine's Day to you! Thanks for your comment earlier re: roses & Kenya. I have done more reading on this ... the environmental issues are troubling. Since reading this book, I've also discovered that Ethiopia is also a producer. I think I read that Kenya provides 70% of all roses sold in Europe. This whole issue is worrisome. I'm spending some time looking for more info. on the internet.
Joann & Kate - thanks for stopping by today. Happy Valentine's to you both!Kate - have a look at the Earthwatch website (www.Earthwatch.org) - there should be some information about the research David Harpur is doing on the environmental impacts around Lake Naivasha. I used to work for Earthwatch and know David well. If there's no joy there, David researches at Leicester University, so there should be something on their website.
I like the ring of that poem!:-)
Hi there,Thank you for the info on Earthwatch - I've become fascinated by this issue. (Do you have an email address - I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. I wanted to discuss this in more detail ... Kate (who ate too much cake and chocolate today!!)
So creative and with only magnets. Hope you had a lovely Valentine's celebration.
Hi Nikki - I'm glad you like it. It sums up how I feel when I think of you know who!Kate - I hope you got my follow up e-mail? It looks like you had a good Valentine's ;)avcr8teur - you're too kind! It got a bit more difficult as the year progressed as my self imposed rule was to use up words in 1 poem and not reusing them later. You'll see that in later posts!Hope you all had a great Valentine's - I did :)
