A Planter, A Boot Scraper and A Survivor

24 May

After an uplifting singing session at the Zed Shed, I walked up through Penryn to get my hair cut. Firstly, I spotted a pretty planter with beautiful white poppies and just one orange one.

Further up the road, there was a lovely old cast iron boot-scraper with a scallop shell and two fish. There were several more boot scrapers along the way which I shall collect in the future.

Further still up the hill, on a window sill, was a Mexican Fleabane plant, surviving with little or no nourishment. These pretty little daisies seem to grow anywhere they can find a toe-hold. I love its Latin name too!

    What an interesting walk 🙂 Isn’t Momma Nature a great florist? Just a small patch of earth is all that’s required and voolah – beautiful boquet!
