New Year’s Eve

It’s my birthday and what a lovely day I am having – special breakfast, cards and presents, phone calls, lunch and birthday shopping in Penzance, a very sociable gathering next door and Duck dinner to come! (And just as I was writing this, two beautiful friends called in – more joy!)

Happy New Year to all my readers! May the coming year bring you happiness, friendship and peace. 🙂

Periwinkle, Heather and A Poem

A few moments in the front garden collecting photos – a Periwinkle and some white Winter Heather which, in its out-of-focus beauty minds me of a wedding dress.

And, today, a winter poem that looks towards hope for you:

Winter Stars – Sara Teasdale

I went out at night alone;
 The young blood flowing beyond the sea
Seemed to have drenched my spirit’s wings—
 I bore my sorrow heavily.
But when I lifted up my head
 From shadows shaken on the snow,
I saw Orion in the east
 Burn steadily as long ago.
From windows in my father’s house,
 Dreaming my dreams on winter nights,
I watched Orion as a girl
 Above another city’s lights.
Years go, dreams go, and youth goes too,
 The world’s heart breaks beneath its wars,
All things are changed, save in the east
 The faithful beauty of the stars.

Curiosity, Primroses and Shoots

This came my way today and I thought, you, my Readers, would like it too. Isn’t it a delightful thing to imagine?

The awesomeness of humans – Thanks to Sandra Tayler

We have Primroses in flower in the front garden.

There are shoots in the tubs where I planted bulbs, harbingers of Spring and colour to come.

Flowers, A Guest and A Wedding,

What a beautiful Humanist Wedding Ceremony I was privileged to be part of today and in the loveliest of settings overlooking Mawgan Porth.

Teddy Bear, Sunbeams and Christmas Bunting

My morning was spent happily with the couple whose Wedding Ceremony I am conducting tomorrow and then we set off to Marazion to hunt for pretty pebbles and sea glass. We found some lovely pebbles but only one piece of sea glass. On the beach, a family’s picnic towel and stuff were being guarded by a monster Teddy Bear.

It was a fabulous warm sunny day and there were dozens of people enjoying the beach.

Sunbeams

One of our Christmas cards was a do-it-yourselves row of bunting which I put together yesterday and we love it.

P&G’s bunting card – Thank you!

Chapelporth, Porthtowan and A Rock

It was so busy at Chapelporth we couldn’t even park so went off to Porthtowan.
