A lovely time was had by all playing in the waves and the sand in Portreath.
The Chilli went down a storm this evening when all thirteen of us were together and so did the Summer pudding.
The show was amazing! Yskynna, the aerial dance company and the singers combined to tell the story of a Cornish Bal maiden and the audience loved it. Click on any photo in the gallery for a closer look.
At the weekend, Extinction Rebellion put 200 flags on boats in Falmouth harbour to draw attention to the climate emergency and I hoped our boat was one of them. We went to have a look this evening and we have a flag!
The winds are wild and Portreath is the place to see good waves and the surges of water in the harbour. We were rather late for high tide but it was lovely in the sunshine nonetheless. There were not many people around and few of those not in jackets. It’s not really feeling like August.
Walking back to the car we spotted a parrot in a van and it soon became clear that he was having a conversation with the man beside him. I took the photo from a long way away!The wild winds have wreaked havoc with our garden. One set of beans is down, the Canna broke off at the base, there is general mayhem and the Marguerites have all been blown into the Crinodendron branches giving an effect that pleases me.
I had two and a half hours reading magazines in a waiting room this afternoon and found several interesting recipes which I photographed. Tonight I made Maple Soy Chicken with Pak Choi and Mushroom Stirfry which was, indeed, very tasty.
Ten years or so ago, when our first Grandchild arrived, I bought a beautiful Noah’s ark. Today, as none of the LiveWires now play with it, I have passed it on to our lovely neighbour for her visiting Grand nephew and nieces to play with.
Especially seek out truth and love, Dear Reader .
A day late as I was busy all day yesterday hearing about the climate emergency and how we can each be doing our bit.
July is turning out to be a month of abundance, many more blooms that I remember from last year. Perhaps I have been more vigilant about feeding and certainly the sun and rain mix has been beneficial.
1. Day Lilies
2. Alium with bees
3. Trailing Begonia called Million Kisses. We had these in all the chimneys and pots the year of our Golden Wedding.
4 Clematis and Dahlia in Suffragette colours – in the back garden, not in my Suffragette garden in the front.
6. Poppy Seeds to save. There have been dozens of Poppies, all from seed saved last year and we have labelled the ones we like the best for harvesting this year.
