Nesting, Berry and Primroses

I had the camera set to sport to try to catch the Blue tits at the lighthouse nesting box. The male was going backwards and forwards for ages and the female just peeped out once.

On my walk into town down the lane, just one berry was glowing on the tarmac.

Coming back up the hill, this is the top of a Cornish hedge, so full of primroses.

Walk Around St Anthony Head

Please join us for our favourite circular walk on The Roseland Peninsular, from Bohortha along the coast to St Anthony Head past Place Manor and St Anthony Church and back up to the village.  It has been the most glorious Spring day, brisk out of the sunshine and beautifully warm in the sun. The colours are true! No enhancing done here! Feast your eyes.  We haven’t done this walk for several years because of my hips. Now that I have two new ones, we can do it again!  Click on any photo for the caption and more detail.

 

Calm, Cushion and Ballet Rambert

I love the Penryn River in all its moods and love that I sing every week with the river in view.

We can all adjust our sails!

We have been to see Ballet Rambert tonight – three wonderful dances but Ghost Dances is the best ever. We first saw the dance sometime in the 1980s and loved it then. It is a most powerful piece that didn’t disappoint tonight. If you ever get the chance to see it, please do.

From the programme.

International Day of Happiness, Flowers and The Sea

It is the International Day of Happiness and I wish you all the happiness that you seek. I have my good friend Valerie to thank for serendipitously giving me this quotation at the weekend.

I don’t believe there was ever anybody who loved being happy as much as I did. What I mean is that I was so acutely conscious of being happy, so appreciative of it; that I wasn’t ever bored, and was always and continuously grateful for the whole delicious loveliness of the world.”

Elizabeth von Arnim. Author of Elizabeth and her German Garden

My happiness is found in my family, with friends, in creating stuff, in singing and in nature – indeed in the “whole delicious loveliness of the world.”

Paint, Pink Campion and A Mossy Hedge

Needing some paint today, we went off to a local supplier, Rabarts, where the colour we wanted was mixed for us. I was just thinking how pretty the colours were when the lid was popped on ready for the shaking and mixing process. The lovely man serving us, took the lid off again just so that I could take my photo! They are always very helpful and knowledgeable in there but that was beyond the call of duty!

Pink campions are beginning to bloom.

This beautifully green Cornish Hedge is along Lovers’ Lane, part of my quick circuit.

Stillness, Water Cooler and Magnolia Gardens

The Penryn River was so still this morning – utterly beautiful.

After singing we all stopped in at The Muddy Beach cafe. This is the water cooler.

On my way home, I stopped off at Burncoose Nursery to have a walk around their beautiful grounds. It was stunning! Every corner turned revealed another breath taking sight. Please join me on my walk.Click on any photo for the caption and detail.
