Our hedgerows have changed colour from blue to mostly pink and yellow with some white. The Foxgloves are gorgeous and the bees love them. We heard a cuckoo on our walk around this morning. As I write I can hear two owls calling to each other. .
We started early for our walk today as the temperatures are set to rise and I’m not happy walking in heat. The sea was glorious and the walk peaceful and restorative. The heathers are in full bloom and contrast beautifully with the golden Dandelions. We spotted a number of birds, a Kestrel, we think, and some Whin Chats that moved too quickly to be photographed.
My morning was spent happily with the couple whose Wedding Ceremony I am conducting tomorrow and then we set off to Marazion to hunt for pretty pebbles and sea glass. We found some lovely pebbles but only one piece of sea glass. On the beach, a family’s picnic towel and stuff were being guarded by a monster Teddy Bear.
It was a fabulous warm sunny day and there were dozens of people enjoying the beach.
One of our Christmas cards was a do-it-yourselves row of bunting which I put together yesterday and we love it.
Walking today in another bitter and quite strong wind, we saw just one sailing boat in a beautifully coloured sea.
It has been one of those March days so well described by Charles Dickens.
Knitting is receiving a very good press, research showing how it helps to calm the knitter!
We went for a ‘Mother’s Day’ lunch today at The Gylly on the beach and it was delicious and much quieter than yesterday would have been. We also had our first scrumptious ice-creams of the season!
Afterwards we did a short coastal walk to Swanpool and noticed for the first time the following lovely dedication on a bench.
Last night I finished of a pair of Sally-boots for a baby expected any day now by one of my ex-pupils with whom I have stayed in touch. They are ready to post as soon as word comes through.
P.S. LiveWire 3, whose 7th birthday it is today, loves her sewing box and all the bits therein! 🙂
It’s still windy and we went to see the waves at Portreath. We were not disappointed!
Our walk was from Marazion towards Penzance today with the aim of being back by Marazion Marsh to witness the murmuration at dusk this evening. The clouds were beautiful, a rainbow appeared in part and disappeared almost as quickly and then the Starlings started arriving in small murmurations building to thousands upon thousands. It is hard to capture the magic, the thrill for you but here is a short video to give you a flavour.
A sunshine forecast so a day at the beach was in order – at our family favourite, Chapel Porth. Dam building, Pooh sticks, Croque Monsieurs (fabulous!) from the Beach cafe, ice-creams all round and a good time was had by all. The Grandbaby twins were a hit in the supermarket on the way home! Today’s gallery follows.
Sunny but windy and cool this evening so not many people on the beach. Those who were there were having fun – running away from waves, splashing in pools, building sand castles, watching seagulls and admiring the most amazing clouds. On the way home there was a splash of rainbow in the sky. Click on any photo for a better view.
