Skip this if yarnstorming is not your cup of tea

June 30, 2012

Just back from a very special mini-holiday (one night) with daughter Mary and a couple of mates at the Foxholes camp-site in Shropshire.

We ambled through the fields to the steeply-sloping and seriously picturesque small town of Bishop’s Castle

for a taste of the local cider, and found that the local knitters have been busy making clothes for the street-furniture.

Clue: look on the extreme right of the photo above.

I expect by now you are thinking, this is all very sweet, but what’s it got to do with books?

There! I haven’t wandered entirely off-topic.

Like the Travelling Bookbinder, I do tend to see “books in everything”.

And there was a field of barley, across which the wind made footprints and erased them.

Perched on the pillion seat of Mary’s yellow CB500 on the ride from Cheltenham yesterday in rapidly alternating sunshine and showers, I revised (in my head) a new poem whose provisional title is “The Book-lovers”.

When I woke in the tent this morning everything was blue and birdsong was all I could hear. Thank you Mary. Thank you David and Colin.

PS More photos of Bishops Castle in the post for July 2013.

    Thank you for liking my blog – like the spotty house in your blog and the books
