Lovely Lilies!


We have a wonderful newly chrismated couple in our parish that own a nursery and we were lucky enough to be given some extra flowers. We have been low key this summer academically and not done anything remotely scholarly but we could not resist this beautiful bouquet. And as our quirky little tradition is to keep flowers by the poetry chalkboard I posted up the first stanza of Henry Lawson's The Lily and the Bee.It is a comforting little nod towards our usual predictable rhythm during what has been a unusually busy summer.

A mouse in the house...

Biddy decided to get out the clay and sculpt a little scene while she was practicing her poem.
She is just about ready to recite it aloud to daddy without peeking!

Spring Chalkboard...

Among my favorite poems...I post it up as soon as the first bulbs peek up in the garden pots.
This is the first time Ive written it out entirely and Biddy was surprised.

March chalkboards...

I picked up this first poem from AussieAnnie at

This next one is a line from a poem titled "Herald"
by Maureen Cannon

Other than borrowing from other blogs and the books stacked up around the house my favorite place to find chalkboard copy work is
from the Ladybug and Spider Magazines we buy old copies from our library but you can subscribe here
We have made many of new "Poet Friends" on account of these magazines.
