2nd April 2020 – It’s my mum’s birthday today, so Happy Birthday mum. I don’t know when I will see you next in person, (oh that makes me sad,) but we will keep on Skyping!
Me and Mum
Two gals out
But much more – mother daughter
Friends, always best friends.
For me, birthdays separated from loved ones and the cancellation of The Edinburgh Festival, Fringe, and Book Festival have been oh so sad. BUT, there’s no point on dwelling on disappointments, we must all look to the future – beyond what is happening now.
I’d like to share with you some of my photos and poems about Edinburgh.
It calls me
This Scottish City
Edinburgh’s dark shadows
Perfect time and place
Adorned like parcels
Pink in blue
My home from home forever
The best gift of all
I see you
Bright castle hiding
Such a blue sky highlights you
Nestled on a hill.
And this one from 2017!
Make up Check,
Time to beguile the tourists,
Hunt the illusion,
Where my legs should be
Find my pins when punters gone.

We all have events that we were looking forward to – weddings to go to, concerts, birthday parties and the like, but the most important thing in our diary at the moment is TO STAY SAFE and WELL and to ensure THAT EVERYONE STAYS SAFE AND WELL TOO.
STAY AT HOME!
Hope you and yours are keeping well.

Mr. Sagittarius is a collection of poetry, prose and photographic images inspired by the botanical gardens in Cambridge. Photography is in the genes! Both my uncle and grandfather were photographers. My grandfather A.G. Ingram was originally with the photography company Ingram, Gordon & Co in Haddington up until the mid thirties. Then he ventured on his own to form the Scottish Pictorial Press in Edinburgh supplying photos to the press. When war broke out Scottish Pictorial Press became defunct. After the war he started AG Ingram Ltd, Commercial Photographers, at 3 successive locations in Edinburgh, Scotland.
It’s sad not to be with family at special times but so much better to be safe and to keep them safe. Happy Birthday, to your mom.
Thank you Darlene. Yes, it is but she and dad are safe at home. Spoke to them both on Skype today which was lovely. 🙂
Family birthdays are such sad occasions at the moment, presents are left at the door and there are no hugs. Love will need all the strength it can muster to get us through this…

Happy birthday to your mum, Marje. It’s sad not to be with your family on an occasion like this. I cancelled my trip to see the birth of my second granddaughter. <3
