Cabbage, Weather Vane and Toadstool

18 Dec

On our walk delivering local Christmas cards this afternoon, it was really easy spotting beautiful things. In a nearby garden we saw purple cabbages, one of which carried raindrops.

Later, on one of the outbuildings of the old vicarage, there was a delightful weather vane which looks like someone running away from a Trevithick engine! Isn’t the curly smoke delightful?

Just around the corner, at the bottom of the hedge was this beautiful mauve fungus that I am hoping someone, T maybe, will be able to identify for me.




My good friend who lives closer to the vicarage than we do sent me this message about the weather vane:The weather vane depicts the local vicar of the time, running away from the Trevithick engine which appeared out of the fog. So great, isn’t it? Xx
