Bluebells, Cake and Signs

05 May

The bluebells at Godolphin are superb and my photo doesn’t really do them justice. Everywhere you look there are carpets of blue.

We were there to meet with friends for a celebration of our Dear Friend, Ti’s, 102nd birthday!  Godolphin is where she generally celebrates her birthday. When she was 99 she walked to the top of the hill, her 100th was on the beach at Gylly Beach, the next year, after a broken hip, she went half way up Godolphin Hill and this year we picnicked in the lower field. Here is the cake and some of her cards.

On our drive there I noticed two charming signs, ones only to be found, I think, in country lanes. On the way back I managed the photos from the moving car.

PS Had a message from WordPress today to day that my blog has had 50,000 views!

    Brr… it was chilly out there today. Glad to see Ti so well wrapped up and looking very chipper. Lovely cake too – one you made? I can’t get over that she climbed that hill on her 99th birthday!

      Ti is a star is she not? I find that hill hard now and I am 25 years younger! I didn’t make the cake and it was as delicious as it looked.

    How wonderful that Ti can celelbrate her 102nd Birthday. Happy Birthday to Ti. I love those signs, yes I believe they are not very common, specially in town. 🙂

      She had such a lovely time, all a surprise as her son and daughter-in-law had arranged friends to arrive in the bluebell woods all in secret. It was a lovely birthday picnic. 🙂
