Flowers, A Gull and Some Sandals

Padstow was our destination today to meet our family visiting from America.  After a mizzly journey, the sun came out for us and showed Padstow at its best.

The baskets of flowers all over the town were quite glorious.

Our Seagull was there again.

Regular readers will know that I love a beautiful pair of shoes even if I can no longer wear high heels!

I love these!

A Visitor, Nasturtium and Wild Strawberries

The Bengal Cat came to call again. We haven’t seen him for several months and were pleased to have him stop by again. His markings are so beautiful.

We have some Nasturtium flowers on the pan stand. When it becomes a tower of flowers, I will show you the whole thing.

I found a few wild strawberries in the herb wall this afternoon. I ate the first one and brought the rest in to  share.

Gnomes, Flowers and A Poem

On the walk to school, always delightful chatting to the LiveWires, we pass by a garden full of golden gnomes and other ornaments.

Outside one of the coffee shops are a pair of planters.

LiveWire No3 is practising for a Poetry Slam next week. This is her poem –

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Eating black bananas
Where do you think he put the skins?
Down the King’s pyjamas!

Anon. Taken from “Slurpy Spaghetti”

 

 

Bridge, River and Pain au Chocolat

We have crossed The Tamar on the Brunel Bridge, left Cornwall and come to London for four days. I love how the boats all line up un the river which today was so very still. We met T, LiveWire No 3, from school and took her to our favourite cafe, Joie de Vie, for a treat.

Rose, Dendrites and Raspberries

Just look at this glorious rose! It was a present from dear friends for our Golden Wedding Anniversary last summer. It smells divine as well as looking so spectacular.

We are late in cleaning our terrace this year but the joy in discovering the dendrites anew each year is still a delight.

We have made a cage around our Raspberry bed this afternoon to protect the fruit from the birds.

Door Stop, River View and White

There was a delightful door stop keeping the fresh air flowing in the Muddy Beach cafe after singing today. This one won’t steal your chips!

Seagull door stop

It is always lovely looking across the Penryn River.

Boats and birds

The white part of our garden is coming along well – Lupins, Poppies and White Foxgloves.

Troon, Garden and Bullfinch

Leaving Troon last night where my choir rehearses in the Primary School,  there was no-one else on the road so I stopped to take a photo of their lovely welcome to their village, a planted up model of an engine house.

On the way into Troon

We are pleased with how our garden is looking. It will be even better when the Sweet peas are in flower.

Looking up the garden

A pair of Bullfinches are nesting nearby and feeding regularly at our feeders.
