Bridge, River and Pain au Chocolat

We have crossed The Tamar on the Brunel Bridge, left Cornwall and come to London for four days. I love how the boats all line up un the river which today was so very still. We met T, LiveWire No 3, from school and took her to our favourite cafe, Joie de Vie, for a treat.

A Celebration of Women

What a fabulous afternoon being a part of celebrating the Centenary of some women getting the vote! We all gathered in Mawnan Smith – The Mawnan Smith W I, singers from my choirs, Guides, Brownies and Rainbows and many supporters and we marched along to Trebah Gardens, singing some of the way when we had enough breath! We finished in the amphitheatre  and sang for all the wonderful people who had joined us along the way. Such a wonderful feeling of solidarity, such a deep feeling of community and an acknowledgement that there is still some way to go and that we must carry on where our sisters have fought before.

Rose, Dendrites and Raspberries

Just look at this glorious rose! It was a present from dear friends for our Golden Wedding Anniversary last summer. It smells divine as well as looking so spectacular.

We are late in cleaning our terrace this year but the joy in discovering the dendrites anew each year is still a delight.

We have made a cage around our Raspberry bed this afternoon to protect the fruit from the birds.

Colours, Bee and The Cause

Inspired by Ali of The Mindful Gardener, I collected today’s dead-headings together and she is right, they do make a lovely palette.

Dead-headings

The bees are busy – thankfully.

Tonight we are going to see The Cause by Dreadnought Southwest, an imaginary meeting between two redoubtable women, Millicent Fawcett and Emmeline Pankhurst.  You can read more about the play here.

Fabulous play! If you get the chance to see it, do go – it is mesmerising and moving.

Community Garden, Thistle and Surfer

I went singing at the Eco Park today to learn ‘Lean on Me’ for a community sing on World Refugee Day. Watch this space! Their community garden is developing well.

I love the thistle heads at this time of year.

This evening I went for a second session to learn the song along with about 30 others. (There will be a video in time. ). This evening the session was at the Blue Bar so the lovely Mr S and went early to have our supper there first. We always enjoy being by the sea and watching the surfers.

Troon, Garden and Bullfinch

Leaving Troon last night where my choir rehearses in the Primary School,  there was no-one else on the road so I stopped to take a photo of their lovely welcome to their village, a planted up model of an engine house.

On the way into Troon

We are pleased with how our garden is looking. It will be even better when the Sweet peas are in flower.

Looking up the garden

A pair of Bullfinches are nesting nearby and feeding regularly at our feeders.

Cake, Buoy and A Singing Trip

I made a vegan Chocolate, Date and Coffee cake for our shared supper on board for The Suitcases boat trip from Falmouth to Mylor to sing and then along the River past all the lovely creeks and inlets.    Our singing went down well with our audiences.  Click on any photo for the caption and a bigger view.
