Bulbs, Yellow and A Long View

The sun shone again today though the air was cold and I planted lots of Tulip bulbs to flower next May.

Tulips for the Spring

We walked on the cliffs this afternoon in a biting wind and found lots of yellow flowers which brightened up the walk, the sky having turned steely grey.

Driving home from Godrevy, there’s a brilliant long view towards Carn Brea, the Castle and the Monument.

Day 7 – Mesa Verde, 700 Years Tour

Monday 10th September 2018

A four hour tour in the company of an erudite archaeologist/anthropologist made for a fascinating morning touring the Mesa Verde sites, looking at homes that had been lived in over the last 700 years. The community of Cliff Palace must have been quite something. Do click on the rather small photo to see the detail of Cliff Palace and the tiny people, braver than I, who climbed down to the palace and climbed up again via three 10′ ladders up the cliffside!

A delicious cocktail completed a brilliant day!
