Falmouth Docks, Red Lights and The Super Moon

We had lunch with friends today and this was part of the view from the window.

Falmouth Docks in sunshine

I was looking for the Super Moon this evening and saw  that the light shining through the back door glass was throwing coloured lights onto the ground outside.

I found the Super Moon by going out at the front instead of through the back!

Blue Sky, Shadow and Carn Brea

On my two mile walk back from delivering our car to the garage early this morning, I was, as always, keeping a lookout for lovely things and I found them!

Long Tail Tits, Pear Shaped and Paddington Bear

My favourite birds turned up at the bird feeder this morning, about a dozen of them at the fat balls that I renewed yesterday. By the time I took my photo the skittish little creatures were away! They were truly there until I clicked the camera!

The Long Tails have just left the picture

After a fabulous sing this morning, plans went pear-shaped and the less said the better but I now have glasses that I can see through though I was too late for my lift to the singing tonight.

As compensation, we went to see a delightful film, Paddington 2 and a couple of screen shots follow. This beautiful Bear who loves Marmalade sandwiches stole my heart!

Another Dawn, Thanks and A Hedgehog Home

The beautiful colour of the dawn could be seen from the front of the house, looking North, and from the back today –  just glorious.

Thank you to Year 3 pupils #Barnacre Road Primary School whose instructional video on ‘How to Make a  Hedgehog Home’ I have followed today and now there is a waterproof and dry leaf lined home for hedgehogs in our garden. We have seen evidence of hedgehogs in our garden and hope that they will now be able to make a safe winter home underneath the Rosemary.

Dawn, Fungus and Sunbeam

I could see the pinky/orange glow of the dawn lighting the walls of the hall before I arrived in the kitchen. Pulling up the blinds, this was my view.

Dawn

Walking back up from town I noticed a golden fungus growing on a Cornish wall, close to the pavement.I’m hoping someone will be able to identify it for me. Tom?

Fungus

There were heavy clouds as I was walking along the lane and then suddenly a sunbeam lit up some golden leaves. Moments later, the heavens opened and I was drenched on the last leg of my journey!

Sunbeam

In fact, it has been a golden day.

 
 

Hydrangea, Garden Centre and Sunset

I love the delicacy of the skeleton Hydrangea flower in contrast with the still pink bloom.

In the garden centre, there was a whole display of purple, white and green to make a Suffragette garden.

Sunset tonight from St Agnes Beacon over to St Ives was quite disappointing until a beautiful pink bloom appeared in the dark grey clouds.

Hayle, Penzance, Tremenheere and Marazion

A quick visit to Hayle today and a look in the market in the Old Foundry Chapel (the wool shop has gone!), coffee in a small shop with a lovely glass ornament display, on to Penzance to show A as many of its treasures as we could fit in and thence to Tremenheere Sculpture Park to see the Restless Temple and for the first time today, we were delighted to have a fierce wind. Do click on the link/https://restlesstemple.co.uk/. My video of the Temple being restless was too wobbly as I was being blown about!  You can see below the fabulous view of St Michel’s Mount (for you, Liz) through another sculpture.  From there we went to Marazion in the hope of seeing the Murmuration again. We were not disappointed but again my video isn’t worth showing so please click on this link to see the murmuration we experienced a couple of weeks ago. The whole thing is spine-tingling to watch. The ooohs and aaahs tonight from the spectators were like those one hears at a fireworks show.
