Birthday, Pink Pompoms, Accordion and Reflections (Weekly Photo Challenge)

06 Dec

1   We had the most delightful phone call with J who is 4 today. He sounded so grown-up and listened all the way through Happy Birthday and then told us all about his cake and his Birthday Breakfast of croissants, a family tradition we’ve done for many, many years and which we are delighted is being carried on.

2  This delightful little plant was brought by our friends last night. I have yet to discover what it is but love its little pink pompom flowers.

3  Our choir baby loves it when Claire plays the accordion. We are learning Leonard Cohen’s ‘Dance Me To The End of Love’ and it’s fabulous!  The harmonies are just lovely and the accordion accompaniment, perfect.

4  It was a very cold, still morning and the reflections on the Penryn River quite beautiful. I love how the mist is just hovering above the water.

Thank you to all the lovely bloggers who have given me awards. I will get going with them as soon as I can!

      Pretty aren’t they? I’ve discovered that they are a kind of Bellis which I think is just a fancy name for a daisy! 🙂

    If I participated in the awards–I would give you one–but since I don’t you will just have to believe me when I say I love your blog and look forward to it everyday.
