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.

Crocuses, Emotions and Fallen Camellia

My Suffragette garden has White Hyacinths just coming into flower and Crocuses that are Purple, White and Green all in the one plant!

This afternoon I was at the local Children’s Centre where an activity was ready for the little people as they arrived. The lovely foam faces were there to encourage the children to talk about their happy and sad feelings.

I did a quick circuit of Church Lane, Lovers’ Lane and our street early this evening, to get my step count up! This fallen Camellia stood out against the old flowers, now turned to brown, and the tarmac. Isn’t it so delicately pretty?

 

Back Garden, Three Wise Monkeys and A Poem

This is our back garden in the rain when the hoolies have been blowing things around.

Our Theee Wise Monkeys planter/sculpture is blooming beautiful! Made just for me by local artist, Jeremy Beswick.

I found this poem in a front garden along the coastal path last week and loved it. The view from the house was spectacular.

Window Box, Crushed Silk and A Radio Extract

The little Tete a Tete are blooming brightly in the window box on the shed.

I love how Crocuses die so beautifully, here looking like crushed silk.

One of our Perthi Kov crew has been on Radio Cornwall this afternoon explaining about our project, ‘Until the Day Break’. You might like to listen – she was brilliant! Thanks TS. You need to move on to just over an hour into the broadcast.

Pram, Bow and Crocuses

I loved seeing this pram at a secondhand dealer on the way into town, not quite a Silver Cross but a reminder of what prams used to be like!

Walking home along Lovers’ Lane I spotted a beautiful little bow that someone must have lost on her way to school. If you look closely you can see strands of fine child’s hair still attached. I put it on the Lovers’ Lane road sign in the hope that she will spot it on her way home.

What a glorious patch of purple crocuses in a neighbour’s garden!

Brightness in the Mizzle, Awake and Sleeping

It has been a murky, mizzly day and I have spent much of it reading about life in Pachuca, Mexico in the late 1800s for our project, ‘Until the Day Break.’  This was my beautiful view through the window.

Last night we Skyped with our family in Spain and I took photos of the screen of Next-to-littlest -LiveWire and his baby sister, five weeks old. They aren’t good photos but aren’t the little ones just so very lovely?
