Mural, Mosaic and Waves

The mural outside Just Delights in Penryn is changed each season. If you saw the winter one, this has just had Spring added!

by Elizabeth Perry

When we voted today we went by a Memorial garden that we haven’t seen before.

We had a walk on Porthtowan Beach late this afternoon and I found my first piece of sea-glass. The waves were quite dramatic and being enjoyed by lots of surfers and at the edge was a toddler with a fishing net splashing about.

Having fun

Mural, New Recipe and A Poem

Each season the mural on one of my favourite shops, Just Delights, is changed. This winter one has been up for a while ……It shows the main street of Penryn.

Our dear neighbour came in for dinner this evening, a late celebration of the lovely Mr S’s birthday. I invented a new cheesecake recipe which has gone down a treat!

Blueberry and Lime Cheesecake

And a poem for you, one that I like

The Weight of Sweetness – Li-Young Lee 

No easy thing to bear, the weight of sweetness.

Song, wisdom, sadness, joy: sweetness
equals three of any of these gravities.

See a peach bend
the branch and strain the stem until
it snaps.
Hold the peach, try the weight, sweetness
and death so round and snug
in your palm.
And, so, there is
the weight of memory:

Windblown, a rain-soaked
bough shakes, showering
the man and the boy.
They shiver in delight,
and the father lifts from his son’s cheek
one green leaf
fallen like a kiss.

The good boy hugs a bag of peaches
his father has entrusted
to him.
Now he follows
his father, who carries a bagful in each arm.
See the look on the boy’s face
as his father moves
faster and farther ahead, while his own steps
flag, and his arms grow weak, as he labors
under the weight
of peaches.

Reflections, Planter, Mural and A Spider

It is always glorious to sing on a Thursday morning overlooking the Penryn River. The water was so still this morning, the reflections were almost perfect.

Colourful reflections

Walking up through Penryn from the Zed Shed, the planters are really colourful.

The Mural that I showed being painted last week is finished and beautifully summery.

We’ve been tidying again in the garden on one of our rare sunny days and I found this little spider which I am sure Ark will be able to identify!

Seagull, Artist and High Heel Shoes

Walking along to choir this morning, I saw the most delightful Seagull painted on a little blue car. At the back there were two more!

Painted car

On the drive into Penryn, I had noticed that the Winter mural outside one of my favourite shops, Just Delights, was being changed and leaving later after choir, I saw that the artist, Elizabeth Perry, was working on it still. I stopped and asked permission for these photos. I will show you the finished mural next Thursday. You can see the Winter one here.

I love pretty shoes! I cannot wear high heels but that doesn’t stop me coveting them! If you are a regular reader you will have seen some beauties before. Here is another example of shoe heaven, a gorgeous confection of a shoe.

Delight, Autumn Wreath and A Mural

One of my photos has been published today in The Guardian on their weather pages! I am over the moon! You can find the original here. 

My photo in The Guardian!

Walking through Penryn today, I was drawn to a lovely red door with a wreath of autumn leaves.

One of my favourite shops has a new mural, a winter one replacing the sunny, summer one. I love seeing them. The artist  is Elizabeth Perry.

Wisteria, Mural and Wild Boxes

Walking through Penryn today, this beautiful Wisteria caught my eye.

Every season the mural changes outside the delightful shop, Just Delights, in Penryn. Elizabeth Perry is the artist.

This afternoon, Sue and I have worked  on the Memory Boxes made by the young Mums we worked with some weeks ago. We added fairy lights and they look fabulous!  They will be in the exhibition in St Euny Church to be seen after the production on Tuesday (preview) and then Thursday to Sunday. Book your tickets here.  Choose your day and your start time for your magical walk!

Quilt, Mural and Fabrics

I love this beautiful quilt for its turquoisey colours and beautiful stitchery and wanted to bring it home. Dear Reader, I resisted! It was in one of my favourite shops, Just Delights, in Penryn.

Beautiful quilt

The mural outside the shop is changed every season and today Winter had moved on and Summer has moved in with a touch of the Poldarks!

If you missed Winter, here it is and here is last Summer, always the happy dog and all painted by Elizabeth Perry, a local artist. Winter 2013 can be found here where the happy dog is now a fox.  Aren’t they all delightful?

Fabrics galore in another of my favourite shops this afternoon where I went to buy more fabric for Baby Carriers. They have expanded their range and run quilting classes……..  I think I will be back.
