2   We had some lovely visitors today! L and Choir-baby T are back in Cornwall for a week and spent a happy couple of hours with us this morning.  T now has quite a lot of words and was able to ask for milk and to tell us what he was doing in the garden. He also says, “Cheese!” as soon as he sees the camera pointed in his direction!

3   This evening we went, with friends, to Trebah Gardens to watch The Venus Flower, a dance event performed all the way through the gardens down to the beach. It was a very beautiful production, full of energy and joy. Click on any photo in the gallery for an enlargement.

    Beautiful images of the dancers. I like the image you took of the bridge with the water in the foreground the most.

    I was able to sate my strawberry cravings with strawberry beer, which was better than it should have been.

    LOVE strawberry jam, just love the berriness of it.

    Hi Sally! 🙂 I’ve been wondering what I’ve missed.

    That garden dance sounds absolutely wonderful – what an event that was. Great photos, too. Ah, you live and LIVE 🙂

    Choir-baby is gorrrrrrgeous.

    There is something about summer, strawberries, and making jam that is so special. I suppose for me it connects me to my grandmother and here huge strawberry garden, summer flowers, and swinging on the porch to help bear up under the tortuously hot summer sun.
