Eco Park, Bee and Poppy

08 Jul

My choirs are meeting up at the Porthtowan Eco Park where we can sing in the atrium, covered but with plenty of air circulating. Over the weeks I’ve been watching the development of a beautiful mural and today stopped to talk to the artist, Camilla, to tell her how much I love her work. All the elements of the eco park are here –  vegetables and edible flowers growing, wind turbines turning, musicians playing and singing, food being served, campers playing and all in such lovely earthy colours. She’s working on an elevated platform and is well wrapped up against the wind and mizzle.

The bee flew off just as I focussed!

A poppy self-seeded in the edible garden in the trough just outside the kitchen window. I know it isn’t edible but I left it there because it is beautiful.

    Love the colors and things depicted in the mural. The blue lattice is the perfect background for the poppy. Beauty everywhere in your world, Sally.

    The eco park, a term I’ve never heard before, looks lovely. I like your free-wheeling poppy. Long may you enjoy its spunk.

      The eco park is a delight. While we’ve been singing there, children from the campsite have been joining in from the nearby field. It has been a joy! sadly, our poppy posts its petals overnight but there is another bud on the stem….. 🙂
