Cyclamen, Simple Lunch and Poppies in the Rain

1   I discovered these delightful curly stems on the ground in the garden this morning. It looks as if there will be lots of Cyclamen Hederifolium flowers this year but I was expecting them to flower in the Autumn! Perhaps they think it is Autumn already. It is cool enough and there are spiders’ webs covered in rain drops all over the garden.

2   It may be cool out there but we have lots of our own lettuce leaves to eat – today a simple Italian salad of Pomodorinos, avocado and mozzarella with a balsamic dressing. I forgot the basil until after the photos!

3   The rain has beaten the poppies down and the wind has shaken off some petals sooner than hoped. They are still very beautiful and I love how the raindrops cling to the hairy stems.

Winning Photographs, Photography Course at Lanhydrock and Chocolate Avocado Torte!

1  I mentioned before on our visit to the Natural History Museum, 13th Jan, that the photos were inspiring! Here are just three of them. If you get the chance to go, take it!

2  I’ve booked myself onto a Photography Course at Lanhydrock at the end of February and am very excited about learning how to take better photographs.

3  Sue, Mr S’s cousin made a wonderful Chocolate Torte for the wake last week. She has sent me the recipe today and I’ll be trying it soon. It has avocados, cocoa and coconut oil with a pecan and date base – no butter, no cream, no biscuits and it’s just amazing! I don’t know how many calories it’ll have!!
