Early Morning Garden, Sailing and Roses

1   I was up long before the rest of the house this morning and, inspired by one of HH’s poems, went out to photograph the garden at 6 am with the early morning sun giving everything a special glow.

3   At lunchtime we sat in the little park that surrounds the Killigrew Monument about which you can find some entertaining history here. The whole place is smothered in beautiful climbing roses and smells quite delicious. At the end of the day, Gyllyngvase Beach and the water were full of happy people.

Seaside Adventures and Two Signs

Here’s a gallery of fun had by Grand-baby B today on or near Gyllyngvase Beach and at home on the most glorious day of the summer so far.

Two signs in Falmouth appealed to me this afternoon for very different reasons.

Poor doors!

Poor doors!

Oh, yes!

Oh, yes!

Flushing, Lost Jacket and Gyllyngvase Beach

1   I wandered around a favourite village this morning as the lovely Mr S had other things to do. Please take a walk around Flushing with me, enjoying the beautiful things that I found. Click on any photo for a bigger picture and photo details.

2   We then went on to Gyllyngvase for lunch and on the way spotted this lovely little lost jacket hung up on the workmen’s railings.

After another dramatic hailstorm, the sun came out again at Gylly and we had a lovely walk with the sun warm on our backs and then, on returning, warm on our faces. Joy!

Swimming, Gorse and Robin

1   Swimming in the sea in January! Not us but a woman and a dog! We watched them from the Gylly Cafe as we were indoors having a lovely lunch.

2    A short walk along the coast from Gyllyngvase to Swanpool and a surprising number of flowers including this gorse and a web, all covered in mist-droplets. Click on any photo to see the detail.

3   A Robin has been investigating the pastry bird-seed cake which I put out yesterday.
