Autumn Tidy, Blue Sky and Truro, City of Lights

14 Nov

1   A truly beautiful and warm Autumn day today and we spent most of it in the garden doing a general tidy up.

2   The bluest sky all day…

A Cornish blue sky

3   Tonight it was the annual City Of Lights parade in Truro. Every school, college and many businesses make paper lanterns from the simple ones that the children make to the most elaborate and enormous effigies. The theme was royalty and there were crowns and kings and queens galore. It is a delightful affair. and thousands turn out to watch the parade which also has bands, drummers and dancers.

      It’s a lovely affair with so many fabulous constructions but my battery ran out!
      Glad you liked the fairy. 🙂
