St Michael’s Mount, Clouds and A Chandelier

A lovely day  was had by all, first at Marazion then Tremenheere Sculpture gardens and this evening  for a book launch in a delightful building with the most amazing chandeliers.

Weekly Photo Challenge – The World Through My Eyes

My whole blog is the world through my eyes as I seek out the beauty that surrounds us. For this challenge, I’ve taken a different point of view, still finding beauty, but from ground level looking up the garden through the uncut grass.

Grandbabies, Reading and Crossing The Tamar

1    We played with T  in the morning and collected J from school, a rare treat – for all of us, before catching the train home.

2   This book is a wonderful read with Harold, on his Unlikely Pilgrimage, noticing all the beautiful things around him. If you haven’t yet read it, do!  It is tender and touching, funny and sad and is full of life’s lessons………

Reading this took me two train journeys

3   The journey home was, as always, lovely especially riding into the sunset, here reflecting in the Tamar as we cross into Cornwall.

Blue House, Blue Sky and Blue Boots

1    In Penryn today, this shiny blue drainpipe caught my eye, then the delightful folds in the shadow of the  Belisha beacon so I crossed the street to get a better shot of the whole lovely house. The door and the pipe are almost the colour of the deep blue sky behind and the unexpected beauty of it all took my breath away.

2   The grey branches and the soft green leaves of the Eucalyptus tree looked so beautiful against the bluest of skies.  How we have missed blue skies over these last few grey months!

3   I’ve just finished some second size boots which should fit our nearly-due Grandchild in the Autumn as the weather is getting colder again. The matching cardigan is almost done.

Dandelions, Porthtowan and Hot Chocolate with Ammar

1  I love the vibrant beauty of dandelions!

These were growing at the side of the beach in Porthtowan.

2   We determined to go to the beach at Porthtowan whatever the weather today and, although a bit chilly, we had lots of fun. Jake in his little wet-suit, played in the very cold water!

Tabitha loved running about on the sand

3   We followed these adventures with beautiful hot chocolates at The Blue Bar Porthtowan where we met Claire and Ammar which was rather special.

Washing Line, Curly Roots and Thomas Hardy

1   Seeing the children’s clothes on the line this beautiful sunny morning gave me such a lovely feeling! (I know the wall isn’t beautiful right now but it will be when we’ve finished!)

Baby washing

2  Tipping out an old flower pot this morning, we discovered this beautiful pattern of roots.

Curly roots

3   It rained this afternoon (more petrichor!) so we stayed in and played. Tabitha spent the afternoon unloading one section of the bookcase and piling them up beside me on the carpet and then putting them back. She obviously takes after her Mum and me in her appreciation of Thomas Hardy!
