Sign, Sea and My Mum

23 Apr

We loved the sign at the beach where we went after collecting lots of little plants from Kehelland Horticultural Centre.

The colours of the water were just beautiful, all the lovely shades of blue.

Looking up in a book about herbs today some papers fell out – in my Mum’s handwriting. What a delight and one of ‘those’ moments.  Mum died in 1994 and yet seeing her handwriting can bring her right back into the room where her advice on growing and using herbs is all I need.

      Thank you. It was such a treat to find Mum’s writing and to feel her here with me. 🙂

    Godrevy looking good! I still haven’t made it there, worried that the car park might be busy, but are the fields open for parking now? I have loads of scraps of paper with recipes. I wonder if my daughter will find any pleasure in them when I have gone.

      I love seeing mu Mum’s writing and my Granny’s in handwritten recipes. I bet your daughter will love to see yours too. That treasure though will be lost for future generations maybe as so much is now online. The field is open at Godrevy and there were loads of spaces at each end when we were there. The wind was bitter and waves negligible so not many walkers or surfers. 🙂

        Yes, that wind is a shocker. I think I will hold off until it is calmer. Thank you for the info.
