It was fun to follow this van into Truro this morning.

In Truro this afternoon we were delighted to see very beautifully planted baskets everywhere.
I always like to go by one of the pasty shops as someone in there knits delightful tea-cosies. One day I must go in and ask. Just look at these two beauties. Click on the photo to see the seagull.
It was rehearsal time at Troon Primary School again today and I found time to photograph this splendid home for wildlife in their grassy bit that I noticed on Saturday but didn’t have time to stop for. I love the education these children are receiving.
Someone had left a jar of marmalade for Paddington Bear at the station!
We were able to board the sleeper train at 10.30pm and it set off at 11.45. I was well asleep by then and had a surprisingly smooth ride and a good sleep. Breakfast of a bacon sandwich, juice and tea was delivered at 6.45am!
I used to love coming into Truro station after a term at college. Two tunnels and then the Cathedral and my Dad would be waiting on the platform, grinning from ear to ear, waiting to take me to the sea, usually Perranporth, even before we went home. Here is the Cathedral from the train at just after 7am. However pleasing the holiday, it is always good to come home.
What a lot of rain fell today! The garden needed it and it has has certainly freshened the air. This is the view through a rain spattered back window.
We went to visit old friends in Truro today. They are both in their 90s and were friends of my parents. We all enjoy a good natter – they like hearing about our lives and we learn so much of their history too – and we share our political concerns…. We took with us a rain drenched bouquet of flowers from our very wet garden.
Driving away later, we went down Daniell Road, into Daniell Street where I have never seen so many beautiful window boxes and out to the top of Lemon Street (details for family and friends who know Truro well). The two patches of grass outside The Daniell Arms (now called The Thomas Daniell) are now little wild flower meadows and they are glorious!
