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.

 

Sparkles, Kevewi and Hope for You

Our tree sparkles in the bay window.

Just returned home from a fabulous Winter Kevewi at The Redruth Drapery – a new venue and a splendid one in our little town.

This came my way today and I share it here with you.

Christmas Day Walk, Christmas Swimmers and Love

It has been a family tradition to go for a walk on the beach on Christmas Day, whatever the weather, since we first came to live in Cornwall when I was six years old. Yesterday, the sun shone and it was glorious! We were almost alone, with just a few dog walkers, walking on Porthtowan beach and heading, at the turn of the tide, towards Wheal Coates up on the cliffs.

As we turned to return, only the sound of the waves and the odd excited dog barking to be heard, we were astounded to see a hundred or more people had arrived while we were strolling. Then, all the more astonished to see them all race into the winter sea!

The following video is a bit shaky – I was cold!

Choose love.

Nearly There, Christmas Wreath and Pudding

The Advent candle has burnt its way through December and we are now at Christmas Eve, nearly there and with excitement brewing in the LIveWires’ homes.

We were at the Gallery this morning for Christmas greetings and choccies! We passed a rather lovely wreath on the way back to the car park.

Rather than make lots of mince pies, it was easier to make a Galette Jalousie, not sure if you can see the gold lustre to make it festive!

Rainbow, Truro and Cheese Biscuits

Just caught a rainbow this morning.

We were early into Truro this morning so the lights were not lit but they were welcoming.

The Redruth Carol Choir is coming along our road on Sunday so I have baked some appropriate cheesy biscuits to offer with next door’s mulled wine as some refreshment and reward for their efforts..
