A flock of peace doves!

Just a few short weeks to go and we’re starting to feel a bit like Christmas with Chloe’s dove workshop.

First to land is Trish’s lovely colourful bird bringing a welcome blast of early seasonal cheer!

Just flown in is this very jolly trio of doves from Rachel! Joining the flock is Mavis’s striking blue dove.

And Jayne’s dove has just arrived bearing holly and baubles…

Perhaps now is a good time to remember the poem by Emily Dickinson – posted the first week in April – all that time ago – as we took our art home…

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –

That perches in the soul –

And sings the tune without the words –

And never stops – at all –

And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –

And sore must be the storm –

That could abash the little Bird

That kept so many warm –

I’ve heard it in the chillest land –

And on the strangest Sea –

Yet – never – in Extremity,

It asked a crumb – of me.
