Our Iris Reticulata have two open flowers. I think they might be called George and I know that a blogger friend will be able to confirm or give me the right name.

Ice, Singing and Friends
Yesterday, one of our dear friends shared the following photo, nature’s beauty indeed. I think it’s a Physalis.
We sang one of my favourite pieces today, a version of Pachelbel’s Canon as learned at a workshop at WOMAD some years ago. This video was made by a friend in the sopranos – sorry it’s sideways but it does sound lovely as each part is added to the whole. Thank you, S. I love to sing all the parts in turn except the high soprano!
Our Ukrainian friends are back and we are all so happy!
Snowdrops, Ice and Irises
Clouds and A Rainbow
Kitten, Cookies and Dusk
We went to visit Dear friends today to catch up after many weeks and to meet their new kitten. We both fell in love with him!
Isn’t he gorgeous?
Our lovely friend had been baking and sent us home with some of her delicious cookies.
Later we visited the beach as the rain had stopped and is due again tomorrow so we seized the moment.
Remembering my lovely Dad today on his birthday. Here is our bookshelf of his books.
Performances and Bunting
Plough Monday, Plough Pudding and A Book
Seville Orange Marmalade and A Poster
It’s that time of year again and today we have made the first two batches of the best marmalade in the world! I love making marmalade as I learned the skill from my Dad when I was about 10 years old and whenever we make it now, my Dad is in the kitchen with me encouraging the finest slicing of the oranges and careful watching of the boiling mixture.
A beautiful poster of this year’s Full Moons came my way yesterday, the day of the Cold Full Moon, otherwise called the Stay Home Moon and I have been given permission by the artist to share it with you.
