Hedgehogs, Lasagne and September Flowers

One of the roundabouts in Truro has won an award! It is a delight to drive around but hard to take photos of so I have borrowed this one. If anyone can tell me the photographer, please do so that they can be credited. “The Roundabout Appreciation Society (RAS) praised the “quirky” roundabout in Truro, which features hedgehogs named Cecile, Patricia, Denzil and Kizzy.”

Truro roundabaout voted best in UK 2019

I have made another Jackfruit Lasagne to share with veggie friends. It is truly delicious!

In our late September garden there are Fucshia, Japanese anemones, Clematis and amid them all, a smiling Welly Dog.

The Last Few Busy Days

We arrived home on Wednesday evening and went straight to the sea.

Porthtowan

We spent Thursday unpacking etc. On Friday morning we went to stand with the Youth strike for the Climate in Truro

The Red Rebels

……..  and in the evening to a splendid Sing and Supper at Mount Pleasant Eco Park with friends.

The delicious menu

Saturday saw us in Truro again for International Peace Day and taking part in a flashmob in Truro Cathedral. The following video  gives a flavour of the wonderful event.

Today I have made my first Christmas angel of the season out of Victorian window glass and some pretty beads I picked up while away.This afternoon we have been blackberry picking and got caught in a drenching storm and this afternoon ……..

Water rushing down the hill

….. I have made a blackberry cake, Thomasina Miers’ Spiced Blackberry and Brown Sugar Crumble Cake and so – we are home! More about our adventures in later posts.

Posters, Puppy and Spires

There were protests all over the country today about our Parliament being prorogued.  1.5 million have signed a petition in less than two days. Despite our strong feelings, there was still humour to be found in some of the posters and in the words of our songs.

We met several friends there despite the whole thing only being organised overnight and we were delighted to met Georgie, a friend’s lovely curly haired puppy who has grown so much in a few weeks.

There are three spires on our Cathedral but only two visible from the car park.

Wedding Day, Biscuits and Blackberry Gin

Fifty two years ago today was our Wedding Day. The Siamese cat just turned up – it wasn’t one of ours, they were still at home in Treyew Road!

There were two heart biscuits in the box so we had them today.

We’ve been out for a celebratory meal tonight and I had a glass of Cornish Blackberry gin.

Tea-Pot, Grand Nephew and Window Box

A delicious herbal tea was served to Daughter No 2 in this delightful half pot with the cup below.

We met up in Truro with our nephew and family on holiday here from Munich. T became bored with the conversation and went to gaze out of the window. He loves his Harry Kane shirt!

The window boxes outside the King William pub in Truro were quite magnificent.

Cathedral, Hedgehog and A House

Truro Cathedral was looking beautiful in the sunshine today.

There are hedgehogs on the Trafalgar roundabout!

LiveWire No2 has been talking about having a guinea pig as a pet. Today we saw a lovely house to keep it/them in.

Central Reservation, Sky Kiss and A Petal

Our drive into Truro this morning was such a treat – a couple of miles of central reservation planted with wild flowers – red and white, yellow and green – so lovely that I smiled all the way!  Photos taken from a moving car – not by the driver.

It amuses me when vapour trails cross in the sky leaving an enormous sky kiss for everyone below.

The petals that fall from the poppies in the garden retain their beauty for a couple of days.
