Daffodils, Rooster and Choux Hearts

14 Feb

1    Yesterday, friends delivered a lovely bunch of Daffodils in the bud from my beautiful choir leader, Claire. Today they are open and very lovely. Thank you so much, Claire!

2   Last night we went to see Ballet Rambert performing one of our favourite ballets, Rooster, to the music of the Rolling Stones. It was brilliant as was the rest of the show.

3   It being Valentine’s Day, we have had a special meal tonight, the dessert being Choux pastry Hearts filled with Vanilla cream and topped with a chocolate ganache. They went down well!

      As we drive around Cornwall we see more and more fields of gold as the daffodils come into bloom. They are such beautiful harbingers of Spring! Have a lovely day! 🙂

    This takes me back 20 odd years when I lived in London and saw the Rooster show. I think it was called that back then but it was all to the Rolling Stones music. Turns out Mick Jaggar was in the audience up in the balcony. And I never turned round. So I missed seeing him. But what a fabulous show.

      We first saw it, in Sheffield, many, many years ago too and it is still as good. Fancy himself being in the audience! I hope he liked it too! 🙂

    The Daffodils are absolutely magnificent. Ballet to the music of the Rolling Stones, now that must be quite something.
