1 After a happy morning immersing ourselves in the history of Suffragettes, in particular, the March in 1913 from Cornwall up to Hyde Park and A Suffragette Diary, we enjoyed a splendid lunch, mussels for C and Asparagus in Parma ham for me!
2 After lunch we walked in the beautiful Spring sunshine down the beach to the shoreline.
3 My Suffragette garden, honouring my Great Grandmother and all those imprisoned in Holloway and force fed in their fight to gain the vote for women, is looking splendid in today’s sunshine – white and purple tulips, white narcissi and purple and white pansies.

I think you would like to read my other blog too, The Diary of a Suffragette, a transcript of a real diary that was passed to my Dad when he was researching for his novel. Have a look here https://suffragette12709.wordpress.com
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to hearing from you.

I’ve really enjoyed this post – I’m currently working on a project on the suffragettes in London and looking for direct descendants of women involved in the movement.
I would very much like to discuss it with you, could we please arrange a time to talk? Do you have an email address that I could send you more information on?

The tulips, blood red/purple: gorgeous. As for the ocean, sigh – love, love, love the ocean.

Wow! Those tulips and those patterns in the pools are just something else.

I loved the way the ripples showed up in the photo. I took it, just hoping – and it worked! 🙂

Interviewed Claire last week so heard all about the suffragettes’ march. Love the idea of the garden, too.

Fascinating. If you can get hold of Badge of Honour, the story comes alive. 🙂

sorry the mussels ayou can keep but, I could go for the asparagus dish…
so, your Dad wrote those books…how wonderful…
and how beautiful…the garden of tulips…deep purple…how lovely!

I agree about the Mussels – they were my friend’s choice and I steered clear! Dad wrote 13 books for children/teenagers and 4 for adults and, yes, I am very proud of him! 🙂

Your beautiful things today have touch on some of my fav shtufffs….suffragette, obviously important, but as a word I find curiously interesting -the way in which it sounds out.
Mussels, are number one, well tied with fresh figs. Second asparagus.
Ripples and waves – the foot print of waves. As you, I photograph them whenever am near a shore,
Black tulips, beats a rose hands down.

Thank you! I thought of you when I posted the ripples photo, it being rather enigmatic. I am not a fan of mussels – they were for my pal, but I do love fresh figs. And I am delighted with the dark, dark tulips 🙂

You are so lucky to be close to the beach. I used to live near the sea and now I do miss it

I missed it for years too when I was away from Cornwall. It is such a joy to be back. I hope my pictures give you good memories. 🙂
