Ladybird, Kernow Rock and More Minton Tiles

31 Mar

A Ladybird visited us this morning. It was very tiny, less that 5mm in length and very busy. It was hard to catch a photo as it rarely stood still.

I spotted something pink under one of the Welly Dogs in town this morning and discovered a Kernow Rock. Small decorated rocks are being hidden all over Cornwall, waiting to be found and re-hidden for someone else to find. I shall take it out with me tomorrow……

Here are the other two antique Minton tiles being used to decorate our veg trug.

A comment was made that a veg trug was a new idea so here is the trug, not a beautiful picture as the stones are awaiting their Spring wash, but as it is!

    From your photo, this looks like a new Ladybird – its red colour has not fully developed.

      I went to the BBC ladybird id site and the 10 spot ladybird is orange with a white head. šŸ™‚

    Thanks for the veg drug photo ~> great idea!

    We made raised bed gardens like that for a care facility (as a service project with our AmeriCorps members). Post build, the elder residents and those with disabilities could garden standing up as part of their rehab.
