In hope of a lovely display round about New Year, I have ‘planted’ hyacinths in Mum’s beautiful old glasses. They are now in a dark cupboard for the next few weeks until there are good root systems to be seen.

We have stopped listening to the Today programme on Radio 4 in the mornings as the combative nature of the interviews and the general bad news is not contributing to our well-being. Instead we are listening to music, this morning on Radio 3, and caught the delightful Elizabeth Alker in her Breakfast slot. One of the pieces she played was Jeanne by Georges Brassens and I loved it so thought I would share it with you here. If you’d like a translation of the words, click on this link.
Super delicious new soup for lunch, Herby Broccoli and Pea, one I shall repeat.
I’m loving making Angels for the Christmas markets. Here are the latest bunch, all foiled and ready for soldering.
It will be our Annual Concert tomorrow evening with a visiting choir with whom we will do a workshop, then share a buffet supper before the doors are opened to our audience. My contribution to the buffet is a delicious dessert, Tunisian Almond and Orange Cake . You can find the recipe here
Sometimes only jelly babies will do!I made ‘A Most Excellent Vegetarian Roast’ today to share with veggie friends and it is very tasty! There was too much mixture for the tin so I made balls and fried them for our meal this evening. The recipe came from The Observer Food Monthly from August 2019.
I have posted the recipe for yesterday’s Jackfruit Lasagne on my recipe page. Here is the link https://mybeautfulthings.com/recipes-savoury/jackfruit-lasagne-vegan-or-vegetarian/
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.”
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.
