All things bright and beautiful

I wish they were but it’s damp and dull for the third day running and I’ve gone to do this post only to find that I can now no longer use the classic editor so don’t really have a clue what I’m doing. 

This wonderful poem is The Gardener’s Hymn by Barbara Robinson.

Hopefully I’ll be able get my head round this new way of doing posts but don’t be too surprised if I don’t post as usual next Thursday.

Take care, and have a good week!

    Was that your epitaph for gardening or a metaphor for the block editor?
    It’s a dumbed down pain enveloped into ‘new’. I guess we will either have to be ‘dinosaurs’ or play the game with kiddies’ building blocks. xxx


  2. Heavy rain here too. Feast or famine alas

    That sums it up really but keep looking on the bright side Flighty 🙂

    Oh no, are WordPress messing about with things too? Blogger is a real pain now, I don’t know why they have to change something which works perfectly well. Haha, I do like that version of All Things Bright and Beautiful, it’s very true. It’s a brighter day here today, though still cold and rather windy.

      Jo yes and have been for a while now, there were more changes last Thursday. It seems that they’re both as bad as each other, I agree. Good for you, it sure is. Lucky you, it’s miserable here. xx

    That’s made me smile! Sorry you’re having difficulties with the posting, hope you work it all out soon. CJ xx

    Hopefully all this rain will give us enough water to see us through the next spring and summer after many years of dry winters.


  7. Great poem! I too loath the new block editor it is made for commercial blogging and is so complicated I have only just worked out the simplest things that used to be easy. Grrrrr! Xx

    The classic editor is still available, just well hidden. There are drop down options hidden by a small v shape next to ‘Add Post’. Also if you hover over the title of a draft post in the list of posts in WP admin, you will see the option to edit in classic beneath the title, next to edit. The system will default back, given the opportunity, so we have to be super patient.

      Susan hello, and thanks. My well hidden one disappeared on Thursday. I found the draft one earlier today when I was looking at it all again. I’m sure it will, and agree we will. xx

    Great poem, but bad blogger news! Endless, endless rain here too, but as we’ve spent the last few months bemoaning the lack of rain just deserts l guess! Hope you can manage to continue with your blog. “if it’s not broke” etc. X

    Delightful poem. Hope your “editor” problems are resolved speedily. Don’t you hate tech “improvements”?


  11. LOL! I do like that version of All Things Bright and Beautiful 🙂

    All the best Jan


  12. Yes the editor changes have thrown me too. I found the new ‘classic’, but it doesn’t handle pictures in the same way, so I am thrashing around to achieve what was previously easy. Ho hum. Nice poem though!

    That had me smiling! New editors are a shock to the system, I hated it at first but it’s second nature now. This post looks fine so you did everything you needed too. Hope you get used to it
