Marmalade, Sunset and A Helicopter

17 Mar

When the Seville orange season was on, for just a few weeks in January, we were too busy to make marmalade so I froze the fruit. Yesterday, however, we ran out – something never heard of in our household nor in the household in which I grew up! So, despite the sunshine, I started the process yesterday and we spent the afternoon completing the making so we now have fifteen jars on the shelves with enough fruit for one more batch still in the freezer.



Sunsets at Porthtowan have been lovely this week so we went down to see it. Sadly, though it was rich as we arrived, it faded before it fell into the sea.

Just before the sun faded completely as it slipped behind the cloud bank,  a helicopter came over and my shot delighted me, looking as it does as if the helicopter is sitting on a pink balloon.
