Happy Happy Easter!!!
is it summer?
are they looking for planes?

that has been flying all day
in the wind
in the sky
unnerving the crows

‘Kite’ (one of them)
I remember standing at the sink at the end of last summer and picking through the last of the runner beans to slice up for the last pot of the season and finding, as usual, one special pink and black dotted bean and declaring it magic, how we would have to plant it and then leaving it on the window sill! After that it’s a bit of a haze as to what happened to it. Did n’t give it another thought! But just a couple of weeks ago a new leaf, appeared in the Aloe Vera pot which has sat on the same window sill for over a year now! The new shoot, clearly a runner bean, has grown rapidly in just a few days clinging to the green fingers of the Aloe Vera and it is now flying up a stick reaching for the sky! Come on Jack tell me it was you who put it there… in that pot before you left, and that you have been waiting for news! I know it’s something you would do, and then not say a word! The leggy stalk is nearly three feet high with no place to go but up, and it really is getting too tall for indoors. I think it is trying to get out of the window but it’s a bit too cold to put outside especially as your Aloe Vera would have to go outside with it, and it can’t. I know it’s a bit early but I think the bean can’t wait to see you in the summer!

Just realized today
One whole year…. and
The Kite who lives
At the top of the Hill
In a tree
Is sitting there still-
It’s a bit less pink
Has less of the blues
But that in it-self is
A bit of good news!
Dear lovely Em,
Long time no see. Bit of a lonely road to the field where the rabbits are, where the sunset goes down.But after what seems like weeks of no moon in the sky, he arrived last evening!…. Its either been too cloudy or too something at the time the moon might have been there to make a brief appearance….. Either way he was missed even if he could be seen! But last night (as a result of the moon being clear and bright up there above where the kite is caught up in the tree by the road I thought I would take a walk, over to where the sky was getting pinker. And…. As I walked, the moon kept up with me, side on, all the way there. And he stopped when I stopped! And the biggest miracle of all he turned round and walked with me all the way back home, an hour and a half later. One of the times When he stood still I took this photo (raw, so the sky is black though it wasn’t)so here is the close up for you. The best I could do! I reckon he looked better through the trees a bit farther away actually ( on auto) and the sky deep blue. Less rabbits in the field too and the ones that were there ran away! So you got my moon walk! Love Rosie (love to all)

….. towards floaty music for the night time car ride home:
‘I believe I can fly’
(squeeze for a kite)
The kite has been stuck up there since the end of last summer and has been there for all to see in the bare branches all winter. No one can get it down, although we did try. It has seen every sunrise from there ever since. So weighing the restraints of being stuck up there against sitting in a prize place; where it can play up there with the moon and the stars and even count cars; the kite can’t be that unhappy! So there it stays. We photograph it from time to time and hang it up on a white wall and compare leaves (or no leaves at all) and admire the blue against blue and change the colours generally. It has become a project; a piece of art outside the bathroom! Or, the kite can be seen from afar as a delightful sign post out on the road which shows everyone where we live near a pole. It still wishes it could fly though…..
(press to see the snail a bird and slime)
……and here’s another one who thinks it can fly, but who cannot so has decided to settle for sliding up glass. A snail. Its not the first time he has done this (he is well photographed but is not hanging on walls yet). If you have ‘squeezed’ for the bird you will see that the snail is flying higher than the bird on the line! Or at least it looks like that. The snail either believes he can fly or he is just an act, kidding everyone. Actually he is due to disappear ; when some other bird will fly at the window and eat him rather dramatically….
We all really wanted to believe that the snail could fly. Its seriously good fun to play really clever and funny tricks with the camera, when it rains and the house is full…Someone wanted to call him a UFO or maybe a flying owl but we all got stuck on calling him a snail, a snail who can fly although this one was brought down to earth as mentioned above fairly quickly……..
Little Pony was found in the bathroom, too late. And one pink sock was found just as the car left…… The moon, must have started to move, as fast as they were, just then…..

But remember to watch out for the big bird who will eat you if you keep sliding up glass.
