We often walk along Church lane and love the big Oak Tree at the start of the lane.
Further along, just before we turn up to The Great Flat Lode, we noticed the blue in the fields below Carn Brea and realised that the farmer has mown very carefully around an enormous patch of Bluebells.
A lovely friend from choir does some top-up shopping for us and today turned up with our shopping and some delicious yeast buns that she had made this morning. We exchanged that for some Blueberry Streusel Cake that I had baked knowing that J would be here in the afternoon.
On our very windy walk today at Godrevy, we marvelled at how the Kestrel could hover so well in the wildness that was blowing us about.

I baked today – Blueberry Streusel Cake to take next door where we went for a delicious Allotment lunch!

A good friend from choir told me that today is Universal Children’s Day and sent me the following photos of amazing sculptures at the Children of the World Monument at Nordkapp. The information comes from a blog I found: “The “Children of the World” sculpture was started in 1988 when author Simon Flem Devold randomly selected seven children from seven countries – Tanzania, Brazil, USA, Japan, Thailand, Italy and Russia — to visit the North Cape to dream of “Peace on Earth“. During their seven day visit, each of the 8-to12-year-old children made a clay relief symbolizing friendship, hope, joy and working together. In 1989 the reliefs were enlarged, cased in bronze and erected in a semi-circle outside the North Cape Hall. A “Mother and Child “monument by sculptor Eva Rybakken points toward the seven disks.” The last photo is from the blog too.

We went early to the car boot sale this morning in the hope of finding baby walkers for our Grandbaby twins who will be visiting very soon. (Imagine the growing excitement!) We didn’t find walkers but we did find two activity mats which look like fun though now that M is rolling he may not stay on his very long!
After the very busy car boot sale, we went on to Marazion – cool but always beautiful.

Here in Britain, if one makes a coffee cake, it will have coffee in it (like the very delicious Coffee and Pecan Cake) but we learned when visiting America, that there, a coffee cake is one that goes well with a cup of coffee! Today I felt like baking and found numerous recipes – the one I finally made is an amalgam and it tastes as good as it looks! I’ll post the recipe this week.
