Guest Artist, Celtic Cross and Mud Maid

04 Mar

I spent much of the morning walking and talking in St Euny Graveyard with their Guest Artist, C,  who is making rubbings of many of the gravestones. It was lovely to meet with someone new, socially distanced and in the outdoors, of course, and to discover that we have so much in common.

Walking back through the ‘new’ graveyard, I took a couple of photos. I love how this grave marker is built up on carefully chosen stones and granite chunks like those used in a Cornish hedge.

More work at the allotment this afternoon with the lovely Mr S constructing the beds in the  cage and me shovelling compost. On the back of Sue’s truck, which still holds lots of the collected compost, is this sticker of her Mud Maid, a special feature in The Lost Gardens of Heligan.

      It was. It’s a place I love to walk around. I love the stories on every stone. 🙂

    I thought I saw a four leaf clover in the beautiful green grass around the grave stones …. maybe not. 🙂

      You may well have done. I will look more closely next time I’m there. 🙂
