Grandchildren, Flowers and Evening Sunshine

01 Jun

1   The Grandchildren are with us! That’s beautiful! Lots of lovely conversations and laughs. We introduced Jake to The Heligan Giant today and will take him to visit next week.

Red sky at night, shepherds’ delight!

    Great pictures…In this part of the United States we say ” red sky at night, sailors delight”! I find it interesting to hear the differences in little quotes and sayings. Since we live in the mountains you would think “shepherds delight” would be a better quote. 🙂 Blessings ~ Patty

      I share your interest in sayings and phrases from other parts of the world. You might think that in Cornwall, being surrounded on 3 sides by the sea we might choose the sailor version! 🙂

      We do! We don’t see them often enough as they live in London and we are in Cornwall but we treasure visits in either direction. 🙂

    Yes red sky at night is the shepherds delight, or so they say? 🙂
    This is a very nice posting MBT and I am sure your Grandchildren
    will have heaps of laughter and fun times over the weekend 🙂
