BEAUTY REMAINS

Sign of the Times-0172 Image by Christine Renney

Mark and I have just returned home from the Ledbury Poetry Festival, where we heard some fine poets speak their words and cadences and rhythms. Between events we wandered about Ledbury, which is a beautiful old town, and met this lady who now lives in one of the Alms Houses there. I got talking to her after watching her put lots of nuts out in the flower beds on the street and asked her why. She told me that one of the rules of living in the Alms Houses is that you do not feed the birds because of encouraging rats. As she enjoys waking up to birdsong she just moved the feeding part of the equation to the street which her flat overlooks. A delight indeed.

    1. A bit Katherine Hepburn and just as feisty. Her profile is so striking and crying out to be ‘captured’ – thank you so very much for always being supportive. Am busy of late but now I will be checking out my faves, you being one of them!
