Fierce Winds, Rain Flowers and Plans

13 Jun

1   It was stormy in the night and the winds blew a skeleton leaf into the porch. The lovely Mr S spotted it and brought in for me. The shadow is almost as beautiful as the leaf.

3  Plans are afoot! Next Wednesday, it will be one hundred years since a group of women from Cornwall set off to walk from Land’s End to London to join their Suffragette and Suffragist sisters in Hyde Park for a rally where they were continuing their fight to win the vote. We are looking at the route and getting as many people as we can to join us on the first section.  If you are in Cornwall and want to walk along, you can find more information here and here.

      Thank you, both for calling in and for your comments. I often find my beautiful things have been given to me by Nature. 🙂

      It’ll be interesting to see what happens when you’ve finished playing with the title words! 🙂

    Beautiful things indeed. The shadow of the leaf looks like one from a crocheted object.

    Our garden was littered with leaves but they were young green ones. Meanwhile the roses have begun to bloom.

      We had lots of green bits of leaves too – it was a very wild night. Our roses have started too – the smell is gorgeous. 🙂
