Windy Walk, White Flowers and Kissing

07 Oct

1   Went for a lovely blowy Autumn walk this morning up the lane around Carn Brea, leaves blowing everywhere.

2   Still lots of wild flowers – these white ones caught my eye today.

3    There’s a saying in Cornwall that dates back to at least 1846, ‘Kissing’s out of fashion when the furze is out of bloom.’   Since there are always flowers on the gorse that’s not really a problem!

For some reason I can’t load  photos properly today – they are all coming in stretched and very odd. Maybe I’ll try again tomorrow.

    I am feeling stretched and very odd today too – oh, yeah, still recovering from Thanksgiving overload

      The photos were all stretched and weird and I don’t know why so I took them down but glad you liked my words anyway. 🙂
