Raindrops, Blue and A Jay

I always love seeing raindrops hovering on flower petals. Our Iris Reticulata, Harmony,  one of the miniature irises which we grow in old chimneys, were holding raindrops this morning.

In a bunch, their blue is quite magnificent.

We visited a friend today and saw a beautiful Jay through the window. Of the eight photos I took , this is the only one where it was still enough for a moment.

Feast, Fun and Singing Part 2

What a brilliant night that was of sharing Cornish and Ukrainian cultures in the most spontaneous way and everyone had such a lot of fun.

Sage, Tie Dye and Sunset

At Community Roots today we prepared Willow whips for planting and then I worked with P and G to take cuttings from the rather tired sage plant while the lovely Mr S worked on other jobs.

In November we put elastic bands on the veg bags so that they could be tie dyed. Today we undid them and this is the one I worked on.

We caught the sunset, the new moon and Venus in one shot this evening.

Beach, Selfie and Pins

Such a beautiful day with bright sun and the bluest of skies so we went to the beach and one of our Hooligan friends came with us.

One of our young Hooligan Art Community friends has been back to Kyiv in between her visits here and she brought us all gifts of pins. Mine means Freedom and Will and joins my Ukrainian flag on my bag. The lovely Mr S has the military roadblock being used to stop Russian tanks and Sue-next-door has the word for bread (palianytsia) , a word that Russians can’t say so it is used to establish nationality.

Ice, Singing and Friends

Yesterday, one of our dear friends shared the following photo, nature’s beauty indeed. I think it’s a Physalis.

Photo by N, thank you

We sang one of my favourite pieces today, a version of Pachelbel’s Canon as learned at a workshop at WOMAD some years ago.  This video was made by a friend in the sopranos – sorry it’s sideways but it does sound lovely as each part is added to the whole. Thank you, S.  I love to sing all the parts in turn except the high soprano!

Our Ukrainian friends are back and we are all so happy!

Kitten, Cookies and Dusk

We went to visit Dear friends today to catch up after many weeks and to meet their new kitten. We both fell in love with him!

Playing, very hard to get a photo

Maybe that’s enough

Feeling a bit sleepy

Nodding off

Out for the count

Isn’t he gorgeous?

Our lovely friend had been baking and sent us home with some of her delicious cookies.

Chocolate and ginger cookies

Later we visited the beach as the rain had stopped and is due again tomorrow so we seized the moment.

Remembering my lovely Dad today on his birthday. Here is our bookshelf of his books.

Performances and Bunting

Our Ukrainian friends are coming back to Cornwall. We are so excited!  I love the poster that shows the next tour – Falmouth and Redruth along with Leipzig and Berlin!

I’ve bought lots of lovely bunting to decorate one of the venues.

Posy, Tracks and Sea

We took purple, white and green blooms when we visited our Dear friend T today – that’s really all that’s in flower at the moment.

Hebe and Winter Flowering Clematis

It is extremely cold here at the moment and while we were in Ti’s room, the hail was so heavy and so loud, it interrupted our conversation. When we came out, there was still a layer on the ground where tyre tracks had been left.

On the way home, the colours of dark blue sea, lighter blue sky and dark and white clouds was very dramatic.

 

Still Waters and The Cold Moon

Cards, New Plot and Steps

We’ve had a really good laugh at Roots today, titivating the beetroot prints done last week.What an array of delightful ideas for making the prints more festive! Thanks to N for the photos of the cards. Click on any photo for an enlarged view..

While we were being creative in the warmth of the poly tunnel, the lovely Mr S and others were busy outside, preparing a new plot and digging out some steps.
