Chimney, Market and Tea-Cup

19 Jul

Michael Chapman was playing at Botallack Count House last night and it was such a treat to listen and to watch his magic fingers on the guitar. At the interval we went out to see the sunset which was not the stunner we had hoped for but I loved the almost silhouette of the chimney against the pinking sky.

2    This afternoon we called in again at The Old Market, Chacewater which is a delight. We bought cherries, a cauliflower, French beans and two Pain au Chocolat for tomorrow’s breakfast. I also found some bargain Trailing Lobelia which I had hoped to find to re-plant the pans in the pan stand. The Nasturtiums I showed you recently have been attacked by blackfly and in a week are all dead. The market is a real treat, all fresh and lovely and very well stocked.

    Are those radishes in front of the carrots. They are the best when fresh like that. The teacup planter is charming and being fill with soil won’t attract mosquitoes
