We still have a couple of baby brassicas in the poly tunnel at the allotment and today we had a little visitor. Do any of you lovely readers know what it is? I left it alone so I’m hoping its favourite food isn’t young Kale!

The sunflowers in the allotment have such heavy heads of seeds that I have brought one home and put it on the bird feeder pole where the setting sun has lit it up this evening. I hope that our visiting birds will find the seeds tasty.
Today was the last day of an exhibition we wanted to see at the art gallery at Tremenheere gardens. Heavy rain was forecast so we planned on walking in Penzance afterwards rather than going up into the sculpture gardens. My favourite piece was this rather quirky sonnet by Julia Giles. .
There were lots of little treasures to be enjoyed on our mizzly stroll around the streets of Penzance. Share them with us.

We found ourselves unexpectedly in Penzance today. The lovely Mr S has an outpatient appointment on Thursday and our hospital is being very careful about the virus so books each patient for a Covid test three days before. We decided to go early so that we could have a walk first. Enjoy the sunny photos!
Two rather touching memory plaques on one of the new benches along the newly refurbished promenade.
It’s my birthday and what a lovely day I am having – special breakfast, cards and presents, phone calls, lunch and birthday shopping in Penzance, a very sociable gathering next door and Duck dinner to come! (And just as I was writing this, two beautiful friends called in – more joy!)
Happy New Year to all my readers! May the coming year bring you happiness, friendship and peace. 🙂
It was Man Engine Day in Penzance today so off we went by train. The morning kicked off with a fabulous Miners’ Cart Soap Box Derby which was enormous fun. We had Tartiflette for lunch from one of the street food stalls (delicious!) and then a walk around Penzance enjoying music and dance along the way before returning to Market Jew Street to watch the Man Engine Ceremony, this time along with 18,000 other people!

Dylan Thomas once said of Mousehole (pronounced Mowzel) that it was the prettiest village in England and it was here that we started our walk today with singers from two Cornish choirs, Levow an Bys and Dawn Chorus, in aid of Freedom from Torture. Join us all on this chilly walk as we make our way through Mousehole into Newlyn and thence to Penzance stopping at various points along the way to sing. What a splendid afternoon. Thank you P for inviting us along. Click on any photo for detail and the caption which will tell you what we sang at each point. Sorry I don’t have any recordings for you. Stopping to take photos was quite tricky in the midst of fifty walkers!
