Purple Berries, Godrevy and A Birthday Cake

I don’t know what these berries are that are in our front garden but I love the colour.

What are these berries?

We went for lunch and a walk today at Godrevy where the beach was beautiful as always.

It was our lovely neighbour’s birthday a couple of weeks ago and tonight was the first opportunity to have her round for a birthday dinner. I made a Blackberry and Apple Swiss Roll for her birthday cake. It tasted wonderful!

A Day Out with Very Dear Friends

Join us on our day out – to St  Ives on the train, one of the best rides ever along the Cornish coast, in St Ives, to Mounts Bay and thence to Chysauster Ancient Village, home for a break and on up to Carn Brea and home for a relaxed and happy dinner with delicious fresh Runner Beans from the garden.  Click on any photo for more detail.

Goodbyes, Footprints and Sunset

After just the best Celebratory ten days together, our eldest daughter left last night, two families this morning and we now have just one family here for two more days. This morning, before leaving the little girls, LiveWires 3 and 4, played making hand and foot prints on the slate terrace by dipping their feet and hands in the dewy grass!

Much to our delight, we were taken out for dinner tonight to The Rock Pool by Godrevy and after a delicious meal, went further along to admire the dramatic sunset.

A Very Special Wedding

Here is a gallery of photos from last Monday when Mydd and Josh celebrated their marriage at Godrevy Beach, Cornwall. Click on any photo for detail. It was a day so full of love that it was tangible. The air was alive with love and laughter, smiles and serenity. May their life together be long and happy and full of beauty.

A Westi, Thrift and An Easter Cookie Cake

We followed a car this morning with a little hairy dog putting its head out of the window. Is it a Westi? I’m not a dog person but loved this little head and the reflection.

The Thrift is beginning to bloom at Godrevy. Look carefully at the second photo and you will see some clinging to the vertical face of the cliff, almost in the centre of the photo.

I baked an Easter Cookie Cake for next door where all the family are gathered.  The recipe says to serve it warm from the container, all diving in with a spoon!

 

 

A Walk, A Raindrop and Lemon Surprise pudding

A lovely friend  and I went for a walk today along the sands at Godrevy. It was windy and cold but sunny and glorious and it did me the power of good. Thank you N.

We stopped off for lunch at the cafe and I was delighted by the little table marker.

Coming home, there had been a heavy shower in our absence and an enormous raindrop had collected on one of the tulip leaves. Enlarge it to see amazing detail in the leaf.

This afternoon I baked another pudding, Lemon Surprise, where the surprise is that, after pouring the loose batter into the dish to bake, it magically turns into a sponge with a delicious lemony sauce underneath.  I made it for our lovely neighbours and we swapped it for some bio-char to put on the garden to help things grow!
