Saturday at Sonning

"When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils;
beside the lake, beneath the trees,
fluttering, dancing in the breeze."

~  Daffodils by William Wordsworth

[These are not daffodils, but they were just as inspiring.]

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one..."

~ The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

"The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep.."

~ Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost

Echinops sp. The purple globe thistle.

A job well done @ Bull Inn

Sonning Bridge (1775) sitting pretty upon the Thames.

Ah daisies and the dilemmas of infatuation! He loves me, he loves me not?

"A blackberry alley going down in hooks, and a sea
Somewhere at the end of it, heaving.
Blackberries big as the ball of my thumb, and dumb as eyes
Ebon in the hedges, fat
with blue-red juices. These they squander on my fingers.
I had not asked for such a blood sisterhood; they must love me."

~ Blackberrying by Sylvia Plath 

"What are little boys made of?
Slugs and snails and puppy dogs' tails.
What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice and all things nice."

"Letter writing is the only device for combining solitude with good company."

~ Lord Byron
