Storms over the winter took our arch down. The lovely Mr S has been building a new one and today added the top to the four posts and I am delighted to have the structure back in our garden. When it is finished with its trellis sides, we can untie the Wisteria to go over the top, the Clematis to go through the trellis and the Peaceful Garden with the bench and sculpture will become a hidden spot again.

There’s a cheeky squirrel who visits us now and again, especially when we have just put out a fat cake for the birds. Once he ran off with the whole thing! Here he is poised to come further into the garden.
A few days ago I showed you the chocolate cake I had made. Here now is the recipe, so quick, easy and delicious.
Turning one corner on our walk we smelled a delicious perfume, not the gorse which does smell of honey, but we think, the bank of pink flowers we passed. I don’t know what they are but hope Jude may be able to help.
After another wild and very wet night, the sun shone by about midday and we went for a walk up along the Great Flat Lode trail that is right behind our house. It’s a good stomp for finding beautiful things!
This morning we walked around the back up to Wheal Uny (where the Heligan Giant used to live!), came home for lunch and a play and then went off to Porthtowan for a last family outing to the beach as half the family leave tomorrow after Birthday Breakfast.

Dinner last night, a fabulous Chicken and Mushroom Lasagne, was cooked by M, our eldest daughter, tonight’s, Barbequed Chicken, is being cooked by our son-in-law, L and tomorrow’s is being cooked by D&A, a Senegalese dish for my birthday dinner. Aren’t they all just lovely?!
We have had the most beautiful day today! First we had a walk along the Flat Lode Trail to find a tin mine for Jake and this afternoon we went off to The Lost Gardens of Heligan to find the Giant and the Mud Maid.
I’m going to tell it through photos – enjoy! Click on the first one and then click the arrows on the right to get the whole story.
And now they’ve gone home and the house feels very quiet and empty!
