Bucket, Brodiaea and Bench

1    Yesterday I was in Penryn and noticed this delightful bucket of flowers. What a lovely idea!

I found this particularly touching as it was on Castle Beach, in April 1967, that the lovely Mr S gave me my engagement ring which we had just bought together in a little antiques shop in Truro. We came to Falmouth on the train and walked up and over to the beach so the place holds rather special memories for us both. We had met at the end of October 1966. On January 4th 1967 Mr S proposed and not quite 10 months after meeting, in August 1967, we were married.
