Rumi, Tate St Ives and The Moon

Many of us are reeling after our general election.   As one friend we serendipitously  met in St Ives today said, “We all need some time for convalescence.” Like us, J had gone to the sea to help with recovery. We also visited Tate St Ives to touch those bits of our souls and hearts that need extra care right now.
We have to hold on to hope.

It was such a wild day, gusts of wind of 60mph and driving rain – pathetic fallacy at its best.

We love The Tate and I will show you tomorrow some of the wonderful Otobong Nkanga’s exhibition. For now, one of my favourite paintings.

About to drive away from the carpark after a meeting with the fabulous artists from Fannie and Fox, the moon appeared over the roof tops. It was a full moon yesterday and this was just beautiful to see.

Home, Happy and The Harvest Moon

We have returned this evening, after a 20 hour journey, from our 1,506 mile road trip in Arizona and Colorado and a four night stopover with family in Atlanta and what a trip it has been! Over the next week or two I will show you some of our adventures.
For now, yesterday’s almost full moon from Atlanta Airport through the double glazing and tonight’s full moon from home, here in Redruth, through the trees.

Mars, Libraries and Flower Baskets

After three months of clear skies, tonight it is raining and cloudy, just the night when I had hoped to see the Full Moon and the Lunar Eclipse. If the skies clear, I will post photos tomorrow.  However, last night, I did get a picture of the almost full moon and, if you look very carefully in the bottom left hand corner, Mars, the red planet!

Nearly full Moon and Mars

This came my way earlier today.

Libraries

Our town is full of beautiful flowering baskets hanging from  lamp posts and brackets above shops.

Beautiful baskets in Redruth, this one outside our favourite coffee shop, Home Ground.

Capricorn Moon, Hector and A Bit of Blue

Last night’s moon was huge! By the time we got home from Truro, it was even more obscured by the clouds but that made for such a dramatic picture. Click on the photo to see the whole scene. I’m not sure why it is called a Capricorn as that star sign is six months away. Perhaps one of my lovely readers will be able to tell me.

Today in the Osteopath’s office was the second dog that I have fallen in love with! He is called Hector and is both beautiful and a delight. He wanted to play and sat on command for me to take his photo. The first was Kaia, a beautiful Golden Labrador.

Strawberry Moon and Happy Day 

Yesterday’s moon was a special full moon as it fell on the Summer Solstice and this only happens every 40 some years, the last time being in 1967, the summer of love. It is called a Strawberry Moon as the date heralds the start of the strawberry season. It is sometimes called a Honey Moon.

   
Today is  Happy World Humanist Day. Have a happy day, each of my lovely readers.

Full Moon, Strawberries and Clematis

Last night’s full moon was beautiful but the clouds prevented it from lighting up the white flowers in the garden.

We had our first Cornish strawberries today, bought at the Hayle car boot this morning. They were just perfect!

Yesterday we bought two new Clematis plants. This one is clematis macropetala maidwell hall and is very lovely. When the flowers are gone there will be beautiful fluffy seed heads.

Thanksgiving, Knitting and Last Night’s Full Moon

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in America!

Happy-Thanksgiving

It was lovely at singing this morning to see one of our growing-up Choir-babies knitting so carefully. It was a delight too to sing to her baby brother who found it very amusing  and chuckled and chuckled in that fabulous way that only babies can.

Last night’s moon was big and beautiful. These photos were taken about 7pm and when I woke at 2am it was as daylight outside with the whole garden clearly visible in the bright moonlight.
