Red Beetle, Cornish Pasty and Mum’s Thimbles

Anyone id this beautiful red beetle?

We shared this monster pasty!

Eight hours today sorting Mum’s beautiful thimbles into fair shares for all – a mammoth task!



Cake, Wisteria and Oak Tree

Tunisian Almond and Orange Cake always goes down a treat.

I love this lane and the oak tree.

Sowing Seeds, Baking and Sea Glass

We’ve been busy in the garden today, planting small plants and sowing seeds.

Nasturtium seeds

I baked some Fruity Flapjacks for the lovely Mr S and Daughter No 1 who will be working on the boat for the next few days and will need lots of refuelling.

Regular readers will know that I like to incorporate sea glass into my glass pieces (Thank you, Judith!) I came across this poem which amused me – a lovely way to age.

Croquettes, Mint and New Glass

Last night’s supper was Butternut Squash and Spinach Croquettes and they were delicious. I’d seen them to buy in the supermarket and thought they couldn’t be too hard to make and they weren’t!  I’ll put the recipe soon.

New Jersey potatoes for supper tonight so I picked some of the newly growing mint and the smell and taste were just perfect.

I am delighted with my latest glass piece – a rainbow with sun and rain!

Breakfast, Lunch and Storm Hannah

I made Stuffed Pancakes for supper last night and had two spare pancakes. This morning, I filled them with fruit and creme fraiche and reheated them in maple syrup! They were scrumptious.

At about midday, we became aware of the sheep and their lambs in a headlong rush up the field. By the time I had my camera ready, they had slowed down near the farmer who had just arrived with some fodder.

Just arrived with a treat

Storm Hannah has arrived. We think this might be the end of our beautiful Tulips. Winds of up to 70mph are expected!

Six on Saturday – At the Allotment

I was invited for an Allotment Lunch today so I baked some Daisy Bread and off I went to the local allotments where our lovely neighbour and her sister have a double plot – a great opportunity for photos. At the end you will find the link to The Propagator’s blog where, in the comments, you will find lots of other Six on Saturday blogs from all over the world  which are always fun to visit.

4.   Stewed rhubarb with strawberries for dessert

6.   Marigolds and Forget-me-nots – a beautiful colour combination.

Our young activists spent the morning making placards for the Climate Emergency School Strike in Truro today.
