Reflections, Planter, Mural and A Spider

It is always glorious to sing on a Thursday morning overlooking the Penryn River. The water was so still this morning, the reflections were almost perfect.

Colourful reflections

Walking up through Penryn from the Zed Shed, the planters are really colourful.

The Mural that I showed being painted last week is finished and beautifully summery.

We’ve been tidying again in the garden on one of our rare sunny days and I found this little spider which I am sure Ark will be able to identify!

Seagull, Artist and High Heel Shoes

Walking along to choir this morning, I saw the most delightful Seagull painted on a little blue car. At the back there were two more!

On the drive into Penryn, I had noticed that the Winter mural outside one of my favourite shops, Just Delights, was being changed and leaving later after choir, I saw that the artist, Elizabeth Perry, was working on it still. I stopped and asked permission for these photos. I will show you the finished mural next Thursday. You can see the Winter one here.

I love pretty shoes! I cannot wear high heels but that doesn’t stop me coveting them! If you are a regular reader you will have seen some beauties before. Here is another example of shoe heaven, a gorgeous confection of a shoe.

Stillness, Supper and A Poem

The Penryn River was so still this morning while we were singing.

Supper this evening is a rainbow of roasted vegetables which will be served on a bed of glossy green lentils.

A  lovely and quite sad poem came my way the other day, ‘After a While’ by Veronica A Shoffstall, about whom I can find out very little. If any reader can help, please comment below. I think she must’ve had a hard life with too many goodbyes though she ends up strong and resolute.

Penryn River, Flowers and Reflection

Singing this morning was quite challenging and great fun! It is always beautiful singing with a view such as this.

The Muddy Beach cafe had fresh flowers on every table today – just delightful.

At one point the river was very still and the reflections almost perfect.

Strange irony yesterday – I posted a poem about insomnia and last night, I slept the whole night through!  🙂

I have posted the first of the Suffragette Diary Suffragette Diary 1

Do have a look. The episodes, handwritten by an unknown Suffragette, will follow day by day, transcribed  as they were written, finishing on 6th February, the Centenary of (some) women gaining the vote.

 

Delight, Autumn Wreath and A Mural

One of my photos has been published today in The Guardian on their weather pages! I am over the moon! You can find the original here. 

My photo in The Guardian!

Walking through Penryn today, I was drawn to a lovely red door with a wreath of autumn leaves.

One of my favourite shops has a new mural, a winter one replacing the sunny, summer one. I love seeing them. The artist  is Elizabeth Perry.

Reflections, Lunch and Truro Treats

I started and ended the day singing with friends and what more could one ask for? Firstly we were in Penryn for our weekly rehearsal. The tide was in and the water very still with just an occasional breeze rippling the water.

Because we had a gig in Truro this evening, the lovely Mr Smith and I headed straight to the city and had a lovely lunch followed by a happy and relaxed afternoon shopping.

This feather floated down in front of me and landed on the pavement at my feet.

Shoes I fell in love with today. They didn’t have my size. I may have to go back and order them……

The evening ended with us all singing two of Claire’s song for the Hall for Cornwall and then to the Ale House for a very successful Shout.

Swans, Ukelele and Flowers with Sand

The Swan family on The Penryn River are growing up.

One of our friends has made this little ukelele for his four year old Grandson who added the paintwork.

LiveWire 4 wanted to take home the wedding flowers she had collected from the beach so I tied them up ready to be taken after Marmite on toast for breakfast!
