A gift of flowers
Plants packed, their petals exposed
A display of demure generosity
Lingers in gratitude
and leaves that kindest of stains
Thanks for a time shared
When no boundaries were broken
No favours asked
Just the interplay of friendship
And a hope that it may last
Outside, bright sunshine
like some heavenly tongue
has drenched the scene
With natural beauty
And in the windless quiet
each still particle proclaims
a pride in its place
And there is no doubt
No fear that judgement will be made
to sully or scar
each stitched particle
of this tableau
Our garden beams
in the lick of a dew.

Another project from the idle hands and mind of a man in search of unlikely beauty.
The Festival Season is upon us. Summer holidays are close by. This time last week I was at The Sunday Times Festival of Education. It is amazing, appalling and exciting how fast things are changing. My best guess is to enjoy it all while it lasts.
The Mill at Elstead cancelled Christmas due to flooding but celebrated in style last week-end.
Costain held their Supply Chain Conference for 2014 at Warwick University on Friday 25 th April. Innovation, factory thinking and excellence dominated the agenda. A good day. The future looks bright.
To Dolly and Iris
Two ladies. The young one is Iris at 4 weeks. The older one is Dolly. They are separated by one hundred years.
I am rather in awe of both of them.
