John Harris, Tregellas Tapestries, and Seed Heads

04 Apr

1   We were in the Cornish Studies Library in Redruth today to see the exhibition about John Harris, Cornish Miner and Poet. It was fascinating to read about his life and his works.

2   When in the library, I always love looking at The Tregellas tapestries. I wrote about some of the others (there are 58 beautiful pieces in total) here. Here are three more. Click on any photo for more detail.


3   Walking back up from town, (which I did with ease today, three months on from my Total Hip Replacement – my diary can be found here), I noticed a couple of beautiful seed heads.

    glad to hear your hip is doing so well…and that you had such a nice outing…I believe it’s all that walking you do that helps the most!
