on "dappled things" and "golden grove"

Kay sent me a link to this glorious quilt that is based on Gerard Manley Hopkins' "Pied Beauty." I've absolutely fallen in love with it.

Even as I was writing this, another email from Kay mentioning another favorite by Hopkins - Spring and Fall.


  1. Jen: I tagged you just now on my blog (4/10) for Thinking Blogger Award. Details can be read by linking to Knot Garden's 4/9 post (link is on my blog). Connie

  2. That quilt is a perfect image for the poem. I have saved the photo so I can print it and put it with the poem in my notebook.

  3. Connie - Thanks! I'll have to give it some thought.

    Fran - I just fell in love with the quilt. Whoever created it did such a wonderful job. I'm so glad you loved it, too.

  4. I'm so glad others liked this quilt. In looking at the picture again, I realized I also like the one that is just visible to the left. I overlooked it at the time, I think. I'm going to that show again tomorrow and my resolution is to look more carefully and take better pictures! And avoid the vendors!


Good to hear from you!
