Singing, Harbour and Purple Flowers

It was good to be home in time for this afternoon’s concert with The Suitcase Singers and such fun to be singing in harmony with lovely people again. The audience were very appreciative, we raised a good amount for our two charities  and we all enjoyed our Cornish cream tea after singing.

We were overlooking the harbour from the venue and I spotted our boat despite her being without her dodgers which show her name. She, Skippalong, is in the middle of the photo.

Walking home I passed this glorious blooming Aubretia.

Birthday Cake, Cat and Colours

I baked a cake using a new recipe today and it turned out very well indeed. It was a Birthday cake for a dear friend who will be 99 in a couple of weeks but we will be away on the date so we had a mini party this afternoon – Cornish cream tea followed by Chocolate, Date and Coffee cake, decorated with (edible) Primroses from our garden.

One of their three cats was curled up happily in a basket.

Nicky showed us around her potting studio and I photographed just one of her stunning pots.

The border outside was a riot of colours, yellow and purple in profusion.

PS. For those who read about my beautiful Chappelle plate a couple of days ago,  I  found the potters! I emailed and was truly delighted to get the following in reply.

“Thank you Sally. It’s a tray I personally did many years ago. I’m happy you are still enjoying it.

We closed Chappelle Gallery Jan 15th after 17 years. I was needing a break and we were wanting to do some things before we couldn’t.

HAPPY VALLEY POTTERY is still open. We are at a slower pace at our age.
Thanks Kathy Chappelle
