Fountain, Feeding and Engine Houses

Our copper fountain has been installed at last. It is in the last patch of the garden to be sorted and I have all the ferns and shade lovers ready to plant around it. I love the sound of the trickling water.  We put the pebbles into each cup to enhance the trickle sound.

We walked up the back around The Great Flat Lode tonight and were amused by the cows eating in tandem and the calf having a good feed. We are so lucky to be able to walk out of the front door and into such spaces.

Along the trail is Wheal Uny and another engine house. From one angle they looked very like the ones Dad had sketched many years ago (see yesterday’s post)  but aren’t quite right. The mast would have gone up much later and the bushes have grown but we think we have to keep looking.

Engine houses up on the Flat Lode Trail – the ones Dad sketched?

3   Fortunately we still have KJ and the children here otherwise the house would be too suddenly quiet! Watching Tom Daley in the Olympic diving event this afternoon, Tabitha was wearing this delightful nappy!

Love this nappy!

Flat Lode Trail, First Snowdrops and Last of our Leeks

1  A lovely walk today in winter sunshine up and around behind our house on the Flat Lode Trail – views of the sea, a beautifully mossy tree, bright yellow gorse and lots of time to talk.

2  Mr S spotted our first snowdrops on his way to dig up …….

3  ……. our last leeks. Tonight we’ll have them in a creamy white sauce with our Sweet Potato and Chestnut Roast.
