First Bluebells, Coloured Pencils and A Baby Naming Ceremony

30 Mar

1  On the lane we take to walk into town, I saw the season’s first bluebells – such a rich colour, ‘like a piece of sky’ as the inspiration for my blog, once said.    We also saw some beautifully veined leaves but I have yet to find out what they are.

2    We went into town to find small presents to take to Senegal for Ndeye Marie, the 3 year old daughter of our son’s fiancee – so our soon-to-be  Granddaughter!  We found some bright and chunky coloured pencils and some paper for her and lots of biros for the other children. We know from our Voluntouring in South Africa that such pens are much treasured by the local children.

We have also bought Ndeye Marie  some picture story books, one of which is about The Heligan Giant. See my previous post to see this delightful mud sculpture:

3   I’ve visited a delightful family in St Erth this evening to talk about their son’s Baby Naming Ceremony. It’s already sounding charming and we’ve hardly started.

    Your garden is looking very lovely already. Spring is truly on its way. 😉

      Yes, it is – and don’t we all feel better for it? Although it’s cool here today, the sun is bright and Spring is well and truly here. 🙂

    Great shots of early spring…I especially like the veined leaves. It will probably be a few months yet before we see any bluebells…you guys are a bit ahead of us!
