Our Walk, A Chimney and Masks

We started early for our walk today as the temperatures are set to rise and I’m not happy walking in heat. The sea was glorious and the walk peaceful and restorative. The heathers are in full bloom and contrast beautifully with the golden Dandelions. We spotted a number of birds, a Kestrel, we think, and some Whin Chats that moved too quickly to be photographed.

Mum’s chimneys are all planted up and now full of blooms and scent from the Nemesia Vanilla White and the Heliotrope, otherwise known as Cherry Pie.

This came my way the other day and seems to me to be the best reason to be wearing a mask in these strange times.

Coastal Walk, Cow Parsley and a Cat

1   Another warm and sunny day for a walk along a short stretch of the Cornish coastal path – masses of wild flowers, a pair of Cornish Choughs, some blue butterflies, some llamas, the most beautiful seas and nothing but bird song and the songs of the waves and ozone filling our lungs – a fabulous feast for the senses.

This post is in memory of my Mum who died 20 years ago today.Her love and wisdom are always with me. She loved the Cornish coasts, taught me about wild flowers, loved cats and was, quietly, a force to be reckoned with!
