Horse Fly, Door and Biscuits

At the garden centre we bought some Leucanthemum and the sales assistant asked, ‘Shall I get rid of the Horse Fly before you put the plants in your car?’  Yes please was our reply.

A horse-fly, Tabanus eggeri,

Walking through town I noticed a door with beautiful glass which I haven’t spotted before.

Our lovely nephew and family gave us a box of chocolate biscuits, two bottles of wine and a very pretty rose bush to say thank you for lending them our beach equipment and having them  round for supper – it was all a pleasure for us so the treats were both unexpected and special.

It’s my kid  sister’s birthday today so this post is for her! Love you, D.

 

Paper Flower, Welly Dogs and Berries

Taking this photo of the rainbow paper flower, I was aware of the Welly Dogs, Tinners’ Hounds, in the reflection.

Just a few moments later as I walked up Fore Street, I noticed two hounds tied to the two Tinners’ Hounds beside a lamppost. That amused me.

There are berries in the front garden. I think they are from a Rose of Sharon that has planted itself.

The last of our family leave tomorrow as our Nephew and family return to Munich. We have spent a lovely evening with them. It has been a busy and thoroughly enjoyable couple of weeks.

Cornish Buses, Carving and A Pillowcase

Our buses have charming slogans on the back and today we saw a new one.

The car park in Camborne has delightful carving of local plants.

What a quiet day! Everyone has left and we have spent the day washing bedding and towels and missing everyone. Here is the pillowcase from the lovely ‘cats in sneakers’ bedding set we use for the LiveWires.

Tea-Pot, Grand Nephew and Window Box

A delicious herbal tea was served to Daughter No 2 in this delightful half pot with the cup below.

We met up in Truro with our nephew and family on holiday here from Munich. T became bored with the conversation and went to gaze out of the window. He loves his Harry Kane shirt!

The window boxes outside the King William pub in Truro were quite magnificent.

Crimson, White and A Dress

The dahlias in the garden are coming into their own.

LiveWire No 4 has a new dress and bounced up the stairs away from the camera.

 

Today, Bangles and A Corner

Another LiveWire filled day!

Friends at choir give me bits of jewellery for my glass work with instructions to give away any pieces that I cannot use so this morning we shared out the pretty bangles and that pleased the LiveWires greatly.

There is a rather grotty corner near our Co-op delivery area that someone has brightened with some planting.

Breakfast, Portreath and Dessert

LiveWire breakfasts are fun!  They ate lots of eggy bread with various tomato ketchup shapes.

A lovely time was had by all playing in the waves and the sand in Portreath.

The Chilli went down a storm this evening when all thirteen of us were together and so did the Summer pudding.
