We spent the morning at the allotment planting many onion sets, red and white looking forward to a good harvest. You’ll have to look closely to see them!
The post today brought me my pre-ordered copy of Peggy Seeger’s new cd – First Farewell. I’ve been watching her online each Sunday tea-time and many weeks ago, in an online Songs of Protest with Greenham Common women, Peggy sang one of her new songs that really touched me, “How I Long For Peace.” Another gem on this wonderful album is, “Gotta Get Home By Midnight.” I love how she is laughing on the cover and that all the music is made with her sons and daughters in law. It’s truly beautiful in every way.
What a lovely afternoon we had with friends in the garden! We caught up on news and laughed and laughed – a tonic for us all. The cakes went down well too – the Heligan Pineapple Cake and Sticky Ginger Cake, a new recipe from Cornish Kitchen.
