After a busy time in town, I spent the afternoon in the garden reading my new book, bought in our favourite coffee shop, Home Ground, this morning.

We met our lovely friends for breakfast as we have done each month for a couple of years. It was the turn of the Blue Bar in Porthtowan today and as usual we enjoyed delicious meals and talked almost non-stop!
We discovered a new family run nursery today and bought a couple of lavender plants to be here in pots now and to be transferred to the pollinator border at the allotment in the autumn. Behind the selling area is a beautiful meadow. Catching wind blown flowers is quite hard so I made a very brief video with blustery blooms and bird song too.
