On World Book Day, it seems right to remember Shirley Hughes who died yesterday. Her beautifully illustrated stories were an integral part of our children’s lives. The children she drew and the situations she put them in were all so real and always had kind outcomes. We still have Helpers, bought in 1975 and now kept here for LiveWires to enjoy.
Ute, a blogger friend, has also posted about street art being done in solidarity with Ukraine. Here is one she has discovered:
A local photojournalist spotted some sheep in a field in West Cornwall, painted in the colours of the Ukrainian flag.
It’s St David’s Day and to celebrate my heritage, I made Welsh Cakes as my Mum used to do. I still have the griddle that I inherited, that Mum used to use on the Aga but, sadly, it cannot be used on an induction hob.

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.
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.
On the way up the hill there was tree that seemed to be wrapped in green velvet. It felt as soft as it looked.
The mural outside one of my favourite shops, Just Delights, has recently been done for winter. The mural is changed each season and pleases me every time I drive through to choir. To find the others, put mural into the search.
After singing today, I did my shift in Fannie and Fox, the lovely gallery in Penryn where my glass now sells. It is a real pleasure to sit among so many beautiful things. Here are some for you to see.
