The Mud Maid, Stuffed Courgettes and Grasses

1    Our neighbours are sculptors and have just installed this beautiful Mud Maid in a private garden.  As Sue posted, “One of the most touching commissions we’ve ever had…       R has a terminal illness. She and her husband K wanted a beautiful plot for her ashes, a place where K could come and talk to her.”  Isn’t that just lovely.
The original Mud Maid is in the Lost Gardens of Heligan, as is the Heligan Giant and both of them can be seen in this post:

2    The same lovely neighbour gives us vegetables grown in her allotment and with a rather large courgette I have made tonight’s meal, Stuffed Courgettes.
