Falmouth Fish Festival, Poppies and My Mum

04 Jun

1   We spent the morning being entertained at the Falmouth Fish Festival, sampling some delicious Cornish produce and thoroughly enjoying Squashbox Theatre, stories, music and fish facts for children of all ages!

2   Our poppies get better and better. Just look at the creases on the petals of the open one, the veining on the nearly open one and the dew drops on the bud – so beautiful. Click on the photos to see that beautiful detail.

3   It’s 19 years today since my beautiful Mum died. Her love and her wisdom are still what guide me. The Forget-me-nots in my garden for her and were in bloom in her gardens for as many years as I can remember.

For my Mum xx

    Those poppies look absolutely exquisite. May a flood of wonderful memories of your Mum enable you to walk lightly and joyfully through this day.

      That is just the nicest thing you said there! I do have so many good memories of my Mum and after your reply, I let myself focus more on those rather than on missing her. Thank you so much! 🙂
