Sign, Flower and Cake

On our walk today we spotted a small sign but couldn’t see where the exhibition might be.

Down the lane were a few brave Celandines.

I baked this afternoon – Tamal Ray’s Date Traybake with Toffee. It’s delicious but the toffee hasn’t set well enough to spread over the top and set so we’ll just pop a bit on each slice.

Mural, Moss and Hellebore

Our town is being brightened up with murals, some in quite unexpected places. I still have to discover some of them. Here is the most obvious at the crossroads.

On the way up the hill there was tree that seemed to be wrapped in green velvet. It felt as soft as it looked.

I stepped into a neighbour’s garden to take this photo of a beautiful Hellebore flower.

Hyacinth, Glass and A Poem

Only one of my Hyacinths has flowered properly. The others have rotted in the middle of the flower.This has happened before but in the past generally, I have been very successful with the old glasses. This blue one smells divine.

One of my Sun-catchers went to  a dear friend’s Mum for Christmas and this lovely photo of it against winter trees arrived yesterday.

A poem for you –  Blue Winter by Robert Francis

Cover, Camellia and Cockerel

We had coffee in Waterstones this morning and on leaving, the cover on a little book all about the Wren caught the eye of the Lovely Mr S. I couldn’t leave it in the store! I started reading it this afternoon and it is a delight.

Walking past The Mansion House in Truro we were both very taken with the Camellia in full bloom.

In the Pannier Market, hanging above our heads, was one of the lovely lanterns from the Truro City of Lights Parade 2019.  They are always so beautifully crafted.

A Wren, A Bag and Sunset

All the bird books came out this morning as all the artists at Fannie and Fox have been asked to consider making a Wren in their chosen medium for the next exhibition. Between us, Mr S and I came up with the design and so I cut, foiled and soldered. The came another challenge, how to incorporate some discarded jewellery as I do on every piece. I found a tiny black bead for the eye and the lovely Mr S suggested earring hooks for the feet. Here is my little wren which we are both delighted with. It is life size, about 9 cms.

We packed up D’s djembe yesterday and I missed the beautiful padded jacket that it has.

We went to see the sunset at the North Coast this evening but, while quite dramatic,  it wasn’t a patch on last night’s beauty.That’s Godrevy Lighthouse on the little island left of centre.
