It’s St Piran’s Day today and this evening I will be joining a Singalong Zoom of Cornish songs. That will be fun but the very best thing is that family around the world will be joining me – from Hawaii, from Munich, from Atlanta and from London. What a treat!

I spent much of the morning walking and talking in St Euny Graveyard with their Guest Artist, C, who is making rubbings of many of the gravestones. It was lovely to meet with someone new, socially distanced and in the outdoors, of course, and to discover that we have so much in common.
More work at the allotment this afternoon with the lovely Mr S constructing the beds in the cage and me shovelling compost. On the back of Sue’s truck, which still holds lots of the collected compost, is this sticker of her Mud Maid, a special feature in The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Showers and some sunshine today but no rainbows that I could find. However, raindrops on flowers are always so photogenic.
I love this child of my childBone of my boneBreath of my breath
“I can’t help on who to contact. I wanted to say to you, I’ve had two prem babies, the blankets and hats that are made for them are just the loveliest things to receive, at a time when you are exhausted and worried about your baby. I will thank you because I couldn’t thank the ones who did that for my children. Now 18 & 14. X”“I had my little girl in July last year and she had one of these little hats, they let me keep it and I’ve put it in her memory box as she was wearing it in her first ever picture. Thank you so much for knitting these they are very much appreciated”
It’s good to see the Crocuses in the Suffragette Garden.
and Heligan Pineapple Cake! Here’s the link to the very easy recipe for this delicious, fruity and moist loaf.
Another beautiful day to work at the allotment and now we can see progress.
Dinner came out of the freezer tonight as pretty shattered again both from the work and the heat of the sun!
It has been another glorious day (more work at the allotment, too) and the skies are clear this evening so we can see the full moon in the first time for many months. It’s called the Snow Moon thought we have no snow . The first photo is when I realised I need to change the camera setting; the one below, rather gorgeous, I think, is before the hand-held night landscape setting.
and to be shared and enjoyed and talked about and ……
We worked in the garden in sunshine all morning and then, in the allotment, still weeding, this afternoon. We are getting the ground ready and hope to be planting before too long as the soil warms up. We were both shattered by the time we came home so ordered Fish’n’chips from the best ever chippie, Greg and Lou’s in Redruth.
I’ve been knitting tiny little hats for premature babies at our local hospital. They are in three colours, red for the very poorly ones, orange for this who are getting better and green for those are nearly ready to go home. Time to contact the co-ordinator for collection. My camera has reproduced the red very badly!
More seeds arrived today – great delight all round and more plans for Summer colour.
