Election Day, Swans and A Tulip

07 May

It’s Election Day here in the UK and my Suffragette Garden, in purple, white and green is doing its bit this morning. I planted it to honour my Great Granny who was a Suffragette and who was force fed in Holloway for her actions to get women the vote.

2    After singing this morning – always uplifting and good for the soul – N,G and I watched a pair of swans on the Penryn River where the tide was nearly out.  They were trying so hard to take off! One nearly made it, leaving the mud but quickly landing back in the water and swimming back round to its mate who hadn’t got airborne. Just look at the mud on the one that hasn’t been back in the water yet!



The pair, one very muddy
