Basket, Pancakes and Clematis

There are still lots of lovely colourful baskets of flowers in Truro.

I made Lemon and Raisin Pancakes for a treat this afternoon.

We brought in a couple of Clematis flowers today.

Nasturtiums, Calianthus and Cake

Steady rain all day so these photos are from indoors and taken on a long zoom. The Nasturtiums have crept over the wall from next door and are a very welcome splash of colour in a dark corner.

I do love how drips collect on stems and flowers.

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

Golden Squirrel, Carrick Roads and River Glimpse

What a glorious autumn day today so, late in the afternoon we went off to Trelissick …….

The view across the Carrick Roads to Pendennis Castle is one of our favourites.

Further around the walk there were tantalising glimpses of the Truro River. We could hear the King Harry Ferry chugging across.

Oaks grow right down to the water’s edge across the river

 

Gold, White and Pink

This rose is remarkable! It was flowering in July and has given us blooms ever since, even now in October.

The Dahlias are a bit weather beaten but are gorgeous when brought in singly¬†and put in my Granny’s green glass.

The Kaffir Lilies come into their own in these darkening days.

Nasturtium, Jelly Babies and Meatloaf

There is just one Nasturtium in our quirky monkey planter.

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/

Hedgehogs, Lasagne and September Flowers

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.”

Truro roundabaout voted best in UK 2019

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.

Garden end September 2019
