Trellis

Apparently Christmas shopping has been made easier by the internet.
I agree.
Mind you, most companies now demand a signature when your on line goodies are delivered and the " window" of when the courier actually arrives can be vague.
Today that window for delivery ranges from 08.00 am to 18.00 pm, so I effectively marooned at home.
Thats fine....for I have been cottage cleaning with a vengeance.
Around 2pm I heard a card plop through the letter box. It was from Mrs Trellis and it was accompanied by two of her poems, one for me and one for the Prof


It tickled me that like so many interesting characters
Such as
Banksey, Madonna, Cher, Bono, Adele,
Twiggy
Mrs Trellis is now signing herself as just plain

" Trellis"

  2. So you are married to a grey and white whippet? I wonder what Trellis has likened you to? Let me see. I am guessing a gazelle or perhaps a Tasmania devil.

  3. How lovely.

    I love that she signs herself simply 'Trellis' ... it means you've made it when you only need the one name :-)

    Terrific post today.
    Very beautiful handwriting, it looks like her. Love her name.
    So very happy she found such a lovely dog.
    I have only use my first name for years, especially on my artwork. My full x married name may be typed on legal documents but I only use my first name to sign them. I never use the x's name if I can help it.

    Yesterday we had the mad organist today a poet. Great village.
    Love your blog !

    cheers, parsnip

  5. I absolutely love this .. her poem .. the subject .. that she was so proud of her poem and felt safe giving it to you and not being laughed at .. Maybe you are the grey and white whippet .. in poetry speak.

    1. I am now considering names. A Single Name.
      I can't use my real name .. everyone will think I am a stripper or some sort of sweet ..
      hmmmm ..much to contemplate today - thanks to Trellis.

  6. Trellis! How lovely and inspiring.

    I want a Trellis in our neighborhood. The challenge is to find a Trellis, be the Trellis or write to the original and invite her to move in!

  9. Agree with Rachel here - might try it myself, I could do with a bit of style, which seems to be lacking these days.

  15. Of course journalists routinely refer to people by their last name (Cameron, Corbyn etc), which I find rather disrespectful. Not to mention very public school-ish.

  17. William Shakespeare is usually referred to as just Shakespeare, Keats is Keats, and Trellis is Trellis.

  20. Not only do I love that Mrs. Trellis now signs herself "Trellis," but I love her poetry... and the entire idea of her.
