Wedding Run-through, Planting Courgettes and A New Wall

04 May

1    I spent the morning at a run-through of the Humanist Wedding I’m doing on Sunday. The whole Ceremony is going to be so beautiful – the vows written by the couple themselves, the readings they’ve chosen and the song, “Make you Feel my Love” – recently sung by Adele, but originally a Bob Dylan song – that a friend is singing for them and all in the most beautiful setting, Treassowe Manor, one of Cornwall’s Listed Buildings.

This is where the Ceremony will take place.

2    I’ve made a heap of compost and planted just one courgette plant and three seeds. I’m hoping the slugs will find the heap hard to climb!

3   From the rubble our beautiful new wall is growing!

The old concrete is dug up and piled up

The new wall is growing – another new planting opportunity!

    What an inspiring site for a wedding! I’m planning one myself, and I love their theme and style! Hope your courgettes grow gloriously! Your wall, too.

      Thank you for your like and your comment. The forecast is for cloudy and still which will be good and much better than the month of rain we’ve just had. Still is better than windy for my voice to carry well. 🙂

    I think Cornish slugs will see your heap as a challenge…x
