Today’s Walk, Donations and Growing Lambs

It was lovely that on our walk, while keeping two metres apart, everyone smiled, said hello and wished each other to stay safe. Here is a view from TheGreat Flat Lode looking out over St Euny Church  and over to the sea on the North Coast of our beloved Cornwall.

Last week, St Petroc’s, the local charity for the homeless, put out a call on Radio Cornwall, for towels and soaps. We put together a couple of bags but could find no way to get them to Truro. Today a young woman who works with the charity came by and picked things up. Being homeless in today’s circumstances must be just about impossible but St Petroc’s are doing a wonderful job.
A donation came my way today too, of some very lovely pieces of glass. These belonged to our Dear Neighbour Bill Mitchell and S has just given them to me and I thank them both. I think these pieces will make a beautiful Tree of Life.

The lambs in the back field are growing. We love watching them bounce about and here share a joyful few moments with you.

Lambs, A Video and World Poetry Day

We have watched the lambs in the back field with great delight today. The lovely Mr S took photos and I attempted a video in the gale that was blowing. It’s a bit wobbly and very noisy – you can’t hear the lambs talking to their mums – but I hope it will give you a feel for the experience.

 

It is World Poetry Day today and here I offer you a poem by a poet I much admire. I love his imagery and sensitivity, his use of language and, in this one, his reassurance.

Cherry Tree, Blossom and Pancake Day

We have a lovely Cherry tree down our road too and there is still some blossom that the rain and wind have not managed to dislodge. Look closely and you may see the Primroses and Crocuses in this pretty Spring garden.

Close up, the blossom was even more beautiful.

It’s Pancake Day so, as we always do, we have had Savoury Stuffed Pancakes, this year with chicken and mushrooms – delicious!

Two Walks on a Rare Sunny Day

The sky was so beautifully blue this morning

Porthowan was a treat – toddlers  playing in the puddles left behind by the retreating tide; people strolling and waves crashing – wonderfully uplifting.

Later we went to walk around Trelissick Gardens – saw Daffodils on the way and lots of signs of Spring in the garden.

 

Sunset, Christmas Tree and Kindness

As I left for choir this evening, the sky was on fire.

The children at the school where we rehearse every week  had been busy today decorating their Christmas tree.

I saw this the other day and loved it. I want our town to put the I into KIND on International Kindness Day next year on November 13th.

 

Mechanic’s Art, Window Box and Shoots

We were waiting for the car at the local garage when I spotted the sculpture which the owner later told us had been made by an apprentice. It made me smile, especially the wearing of a tie!

A preview for you! The gallery, Fannie & Fox in Penryn, where I sell my glass is doing an Advent Calendar for the window display over December. Each artist is making a box to showcase their work and has been given a number. I’m No 5 and I showed you the 5 the other day. Here is my shoe box.

Despite the cold, wet and windy weather, for some reason just one of the bulbs that I planted for Spring is popping through into the light, far  too  early.

View, Weaving and Cake

I arrived at the venue for the Humanist Baby Naming I was conducting this afternoon and what a view! The wind dropped, the rain held off and we had the most joyous ceremony you can imagine.

Across the Carrick Roads

Friends and family were asked to write their wishes for the little boy’s future on coloured strips of linen. They will be woven to make the body of the sailing boat which is made up of cream linen strips on which friends and family wrote wishes for the lovely young parents when they were married. What a beautiful idea!

Linen wish weaving

Also saved from their wedding six years ago, in the traditional manner, was the top tier of their Wedding cake decorated by the bride, to which their little boy, who will be one year old on Monday, has been added.
