There is an early Autumnal feel in the air despite the occasional warmth of the sun.
1. We have been eating beans for a couple of weeks but now there are more than we can deal with so, having made pints of Runner Bean Soup, I have today made a big batch of Fagiolata, as suggested by our lovely neighbour. The purple beans looked lovely against the red of the tomatoey, oniony, garlicky sauce though as soon as they were cooking, they became green.
If you would like to join in Six on Saturday, (or even Sunday) go and visit The propagator.
At the garden centre we bought some Leucanthemum and the sales assistant asked, ‘Shall I get rid of the Horse Fly before you put the plants in your car?’ Yes please was our reply.
Walking through town I noticed a door with beautiful glass which I haven’t spotted before.
Our lovely nephew and family gave us a box of chocolate biscuits, two bottles of wine and a very pretty rose bush to say thank you for lending them our beach equipment and having them round for supper – it was all a pleasure for us so the treats were both unexpected and special.
It’s my kid sister’s birthday today so this post is for her! Love you, D.
The last of our family leave tomorrow as our Nephew and family return to Munich. We have spent a lovely evening with them. It has been a busy and thoroughly enjoyable couple of weeks.
The car park in Camborne has delightful carving of local plants.
What a quiet day! Everyone has left and we have spent the day washing bedding and towels and missing everyone. Here is the pillowcase from the lovely ‘cats in sneakers’ bedding set we use for the LiveWires.
