Craft Collective, Front Garden and A Special Dinner

This afternoon I went into town to The Craft Collective as I had heard that they were going to be knitting pink Pussy hats in preparation for any visit by POTUS No 45. As well as the ticket buying wool, pattern, needles and unlimited wonderful snacks, more than half of the money was being collected for  Cornwall Women’s Refuge. You can find out more about the charity here.  What a pleasure to spend a creative afternoon with like-minded people!



Coming home I was delighted by our own front garden!


Our eldest daughter is with us for the weekend for her birthday so I have cooked up a storm, the main course of which was spectacular and delicious. It is Yottam Ottolenghi’s Duck with Blackberries, Ginger and Star Anise and it went down very well! We had the Duck dish with a mash of Carrots, Potato and Sweet Potato and some Crispy Garlicky Kale.

Armandii, Monkeys and Oops x2

The sun shone today and the garden is looking beautiful! Here are some of the Clematis Armandii flowers, the Three Wise Monkeys planter with Muscari now blooming among the Tete a Tete and an unexpected up-side-down shot!




So tired yesterday, I forgot to press the ‘Publish’ button!
