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!

Fungi, Feather and Frolics

It was a beautiful frosty and very bright morning and we headed off early for a walk at Godrevy. Catch the waves with us, see the fungi as we walk around the headland and watch the seals in the bay. Click on photos to see the dew drop detail.

Snail, Lighthouse and Furriness

A very windy walk this afternoon but still, of course, beauty to be found.

We have just arrived home from a fabulous gig – Ralph McTell at the Hall for Cornwall, memories of the old days at a folk club when we were very young and just as good as ever!

Tulips, Eggs and Crashing Waves

The tulips that I was given over a week ago are fading but still lovely.

We had scrambled eggs for breakfast this morning as I blew the eggs for my Easter treat for the Grandchildren, two of whom arrive tomorrow evening. Here I am filling the shells with chocolate the way my Dad did for us. I will let you know how they are received on Saturday morning.

It was full tide at Godrevy and the waves were crashing magnificently, almost obscuring the lighthouse at one point.

Felted Godrevy

My beautiful and very talented friend, N, made this delightful felted picture of one of our favourite places, Godrevy.

It is where I would rather be today whereas I am nearby in St Michael’s Hospital having my hip replacement done. In four days I should be home and becoming increasingly mobile!
