Woodpecker,Third Daughter and Singing in the Kitchen

08 Jul

1   We had a beautiful visitor at the feeder today, a male Lesser Spotted Woodpecker! Here’s a photo but you’ll have to look very carefully. He’s hanging from the lower feeder just right of centre!

2   Our beautiful third daughter arrived today for the reunion! Second beautiful daughter will be here on Tuesday and first beautiful daughter on Friday and we will Skype with Daniel (son and twin to Daughter 3) in Barcelona and Ami in Senegal as they, sadly, can’t join us.

3   It was our kitchen’s turn to host The Treggies this evening and what a cracking good sing of Cornish songs we’ve had! I made some Marmite Scones and Red Onion for the singers! (Recipe on the Recipe pages)

No 4    A bonus! My sister in Hawaii sent me this picture which I love for its exuberance and philosophy.
