Lights Tree, Cyclamen and An Angel

The lovely Mr S put up our lights tree in the back garden. What a delight when darkness had fallen!

The tree of lights

I have put two Cyclamen we were given in among the various house plants and added the glass lights tree-cone which illuminates it all beautifully. Thanks A and P.

Forest of leaves and lights

We were also given a pretty little angel to add to my collection. It is simple and very lovely and I will add it to the tree when we get it up later this week.

Porcelain Angel – thanks A

To all those kind people who have been wishing me well, I am on the mend and I thank you all for your love and concern.

Thank you for all the good wishes for my recovery  – still rough and again the lovely Mr S has taken these photos for me today.

 
 

In the Garden in December

The lovely Mr S has been out into the rather damp garden to find me some beautiful things as I am laid up with some vile lurgy that has knocked the stuffing out of me. Postings may be sporadic over the next few day and I apologise to followers for no beautiful things yesterday.

Dawn, Fox and Dessert

It was a beautiful dawn this morning.

As I was watching the sun come up I noticed a fox walking across the back field.

I made a Chestnut and Amaretto Roulade today and it was scrumptious!

Christmas Boxes, Scented Rose and Supper

We delivered our boxes today and were pleased to see others at the collection point.

Christmas Dinner Boxes

I called in to see my lovely neighbour this afternoon. Her rose, which smells divine, is still in flower and there is one more outside to be picked soon.

Young Lycidas

I tried another vegan recipe last night and it was delicious. I served it with onion gravy and broccoli.

Rainbow, Slow Cooker Supper and Singing

I love rainbows.

Behind Truro

I tried a new recipe for tonight and it was delicious. I’m trying to do two each of vegan, vegetarian, meat and fish over each eight day sequence and this is a splendid vegan meal.

We have been singing carols for the start of Krowji’s open week of art sales – lots of fun. Here is a small group singing a bit of Gaudete.

St Michael’s Mount, Windsurfer and Sunset

We had hoped to see the Marazion murmuration this evening but the wind was far too strong and the starlings just flew in in small groups and went straight to roost in the reeds. There was still beauty to be found!
