Muguet, Ship and Hellfire Kernow

01 May

Today is a special day for remembering my very dear friend, Kath, in whose memory I write this blog. Kath loved France and we spent some happy times there with her and C. If we were together on May 1st she would give me a little bunch of Lily-of-the-Valley. If we weren’t, she would send me a card to celebrate La Fete du Muguet. You can read about its significance here.

For the past week I have been working with our lovely neighbour, helping with the making of a ‘ship.’ I haven’t shown you as my photos have been bitty but today I watched it leave home for the parade later today.

Going to the parade

I wrote about Hellfire Kernow last year (you can catch the post here). Do enjoy the gallery so full of colour and the craziness that makes up festivals in Cornwall!

    I have many of the Lily of the valley in my garden, but they are not open quite yet.
    That festival looks great!

      It was, Ute, you would have loved it. It’ll be on Monday May 6th next year. 🙂

      I had to pick carefully to find the best already open ones. Most of them have yet to open. I think they must open earlier in France. 🙂

    Lily-of-the-Valley flowers are so wonderful!
