Cornish Daffodils, Zig Ziglar and Cornish Yarg

19 Dec

1   A very good friend brought me some beautiful Cornish grown daffodils today, very much appreciated. The gesture warmed my soul. Thank you.



2   This little plaque came my way via two other lovely friends, one here in Cornwall and her sister-in-law in Vermont. We all do our best!  Thank you to you two too. Please share my  bright and cheery bunch of flowers.

3    Those of you outside Cornwall may not know this delicious Cornish cheese, Yarg. It is a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese made  from the milk of Friesian cows. Before being left to mature, this cheese is wrapped in nettle leaves to form an edible, though mouldy, rind. Hence the beautiful pattern on the outside.

      It tastes good too – and you eat the nettles and they don’t sting! 🙂

    The loud, bold color of your daffodils certainly leaves an imprint on a cold dreary winter day like today.
