My Glass Decoration, Paddington Bear and Daffodils

Here is my completed glass hanging so that you can see the design more clearly. I have incorporated one of a pair of earrings that I no longer wear though they were much loved so now my piece contains memories too.

The piece I am very pleased with

We found this commemorative 50p in our change yesterday – Paddington Bear at Paddington Station. It is strange how the photo makes it appear see-through.

One of my readers and a good friend sent me a photo of some daffodils so here they are, one of today’s beautiful things thanks to A. They are locally grown.

Sunshine, Celandine and Our Daffodils

The sun has been shining today, shafts coming through the vine next door and lighting up the leaves.

Our walk was lovely today, very cold on our faces but apricity on our backs and then the reverse on our way up from town.  Another shaft of sunlight lit up a Celandine along Lovers’ Lane.

We had Daffodils flowering in the front garden but the wild winds have beaten several of them to the ground so I cut them and brought them indoors to be appreciated.

Daffodils, Tree Trunk and Winter Branches

I spotted the white bench first on our walk today, then the daffodils in flower so early and then, when I loaded the photos, the Gnome!

and a Gnome!

Green moss,  green ivy and a tree trunk….

It has been a day of very heavy showers and some blue skies. We had both on our walk.

I love winter branches

Truro Cathedral, Dad’s Daffs and Clematis

1  We went to Truro today.

2   Dad’s Cornish Daffs are grown in St Keverne and smell divine.

3   We have a few flowers on our Clematis Cirrohsa Balearica but you have to get right underneath them to see inside.

Daffodils, Rooster and Choux Hearts

1    Yesterday, friends delivered a lovely bunch of Daffodils in the bud from my beautiful choir leader, Claire. Today they are open and very lovely. Thank you so much, Claire!

2   Last night we went to see Ballet Rambert performing one of our favourite ballets, Rooster, to the music of the Rolling Stones. It was brilliant as was the rest of the show.

3   It being Valentine’s Day, we have had a special meal tonight, the dessert being Choux pastry Hearts filled with Vanilla cream and topped with a chocolate ganache. They went down well!

Happy Valentine’s Day to all my readers!

Choir-Babies, Tree and Trelissick

1   There were two beautiful choir babies with us today at The Suitcases singing session and it was a delight to watch them playing together (even if a bit of a distraction!)

2   This afternoon we went from thick fog at home to bright sunshine at Trelissick Gardens and saw this fascinating slice from a tree that was planted in 1840!

3   There were three special treats at Trelissick today – the terrace in front of the house has been opened to the public and the view down to the Carrick Roads will be wonderful on a clear day.

The Magnolia Denudata was absolutely stunning. The flowers are creamy white and perfect, not a hint of browning yet and the buds are furry and gorgeous!    It was also the Daffodil Exhibition, well over a hundred different varieties on show in the old stables. It pleased me to see that one of the horses kept there was named Sally!

Tube Announcement, Cornish Daffodils and A Song

1   A young friend of mine heard this at Victoria tube station in London the other day –

‘Hello you shiny, happy, lovely Friday people, welcome aboard the Soul Train! Have a wonderful day!’

What a brilliant way to bring smiles to people’s faces on their morning commute. Happiness indeed!

2   These gorgeous Cornish daffodils bring smiles to us whenever we go into the kitchen. I love the reflection in the shiny surface too.

3    It was so good to be back at singing after being ill. We sang several of my favourites tonight including the wonderful ‘Oxygen” which you can listen to here. It was written by our own Choir leader, Claire Ingleheart, for the Suffragette play, ‘Oxygen’  performed last year here in Cornwall and all along the route of the Suffragette March from Lands End to London. Have a look at this post if you’d like to know more and if you put Suffragette in the search, all the posts will come up for you.
