Six on Saturday – Replanting and Spring Bulbs

We’ve started the work on the Suffragette Garden that needs an overhaul. The blind Narcissi in the first photo are now out and the ground ready for planting.

2.  The ground is already for planting…..

Ready

3. …… and the Hebes are in, ‘Baby Marie’  which will grow to 40 cms and I hope, in time, they will make a little hedge. The have white flowers but the buds are tinged with purple so will be perfect for this garden.

4.  I was given these bulbs for Christmas a few years ago but nothing happened and I had forgotten all about them. This year, here they are in the little wall garden and I don’t know what they are called. Help, anyone?

Identity needed

5.   The Narcissi are brightening up a dark corner. I’m hoping Storm Freya, which is on its way won’t beat them down.

More Narcissi

6.   Now for something completely different!  It is St Piran’s Day here in Cornwall and our little town celebrates with a parade and hundreds of daffodils – in every shop window, in lapels, as decoration. It’s great fun!

New Year’s Eve

It’s my birthday and what a lovely day I am having – special breakfast, cards and presents, phone calls, lunch and birthday shopping in Penzance, a very sociable gathering next door and Duck dinner to come! (And just as I was writing this, two beautiful friends called in – more joy!)

Happy New Year to all my readers! May the coming year bring you happiness, friendship and peace. 🙂

Curiosity, Primroses and Shoots

This came my way today and I thought, you, my Readers, would like it too. Isn’t it a delightful thing to imagine?

The awesomeness of humans – Thanks to Sandra Tayler

We have Primroses in flower in the front garden.

There are shoots in the tubs where I planted bulbs, harbingers of Spring and colour to come.

Truro Cathedral, Cheesecake and Shoes

A busy day – Truro early in the rain and then to St Euny Church to meet with the Welsh Choir for our concert and a pot luck shared meal. More in tomorrow’s post.

Truro Cathedral

Fabulous shoes!

Humanist Wedding, Phillip Pullman and Blooms

It was overcast but the rain held off for the very beautiful Humanist Wedding held in the grounds of the Meudon Hotel, Falmouth.  The couple were very happy, of course, and the whole event full of love and joy.

They chose some very interesting readings – this extract from The Amber Spyglass by Phillip Pullman was particularly moving.

“I will love you forever; whatever happens. Till I die and after I die, and when I find my way out of the land of the dead, I’ll drift about forever, all my atoms, till I find you again… I’ll be looking for you, every moment, every single moment. And when we do find each other again, we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one’ll ever tear us apart. Every atom of me and every atom of you… We’ll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams… And when they use our atoms to make new lives, they won’t just be able to take one, they’ll have to take two, one of you and one of me.”

The gardens at The Meudon are glorious. We must visit again very soon.

I do love being the Celebrant at such happy occasions.
