Good Advice, Porthtowan and Love-in-a-Mist

22 Aug

1   A friend sent me this advice and it pleases me. I’ve seen a sunrise, looked at the stars, have the right kind of coffee table and look for the small beautiful things every day but I’m not sure about the trampoline! I am inspired by a fellow blogger to get a pogo stick so that could substitute!

Watch the sun rise at least once a year

2   It has been another glorious day today.  The Grand-kids love the freedom of the sands at Porthtowan which is a beautiful beach and only 10 minutes from home.

Off to the sea

3   The Love-in-a-Mist is at last in flower. It’s one of my favourites, delicate and beautiful and the seed head later is also a delight.

    Boing! Boing! boing! A pogo stick doesn’t take up much room. 🙂

    Ah beach times so so remind me of all those good days Daniel & me had on the beach. LOVE to see that ocean, that freedom.

    And great words on life especially re the marshmallows – mmmmm 🙂

    Lovely post today! My nigella comes early in the spring here in VA, USA. Love it anytime. Did you know that the seeds are edible? Come over to my blog and see what I am up to these days…;-)

    Love-in-a-Mist, never saw one before, but ah, such beauty, such grace in a single bloom. The kids are having a ball (lovely color contrast with the water). As for the advice, doing all these things is why people think I’m crazy. I’m not crazy, just manic depressive. Folks fail to see the difference between “free spirit” and insanity! Loved this, hon.

      I had thought you might like the advice, in fact, like me, living the advice already! xx
      I give a packet of Love-in-a-mist flowers to the couples I marry so that they will be flowering at their first anniversary! 🙂

    Charming pictures of the children, particularly the expanse of beach with the many footsteps.

    The first one on the list about sunrises is my favorite. I watch several a week. Our house faces east. 🙂

    Love the advice… I think pogo sticks are harder to bounce on than they look but I’m sure you’ll have fun trying! That looks like a gorgeous beach, definitely a great one for the grand-kids and that flower is absolutely beautiful, never seen one of those before so thank you for sharing 🙂
