Visiting, Colour and Free Food

I had a delightful visit with a lovely choir friend this morning, treated to Lemon Drizzle Cake and coffee and special cookies to bring home. Suddenly J said, “There’s a heron in the garden!” and there it was, just 6′ away at first. He was eyeing up the fish in the pond but took to flight when I stepped out to get more pictures.  Here are the photos I managed to get of this elegant creature. Apparently the Heron signifies patience, just waiting and going with the flow – seems about right for these strange times.

Walking home I passed a lovely  tree, covered in gloriously glowing Autumnal colours.

A bit further on, along the lane, were some delicious Blackberries and I remembered to take the photo this time before I ate them all!

Heron, Flowerpots and French Knitting

As we cross the bridge into town we can sometimes spot the resident heron.



All along the bridge are enormous flowerpots in strong primary colours which look really bright and cheerful.

I am teaching our Livewire how to do French knitting. We are hoping to have made a necklace before we leave. DSCN9277

Newlyn Art Gallery, Heron and St Michael’s Mount

Other bloggers often ask, ‘What are you grateful for?’  Every day I am so grateful that we were able to come back to Cornwall, to enjoy the sea and the countryside. Today we went to Newlyn to the Art Gallery and for a walk along the front in bright Autumn sunshine. There was a bowl that I loved and a painting but almost the best thing was seeing the sky as we went up in the lift – magic!

As we walked along Mr S spotted a Heron in the sea.

From the path and the gardens we could see St Michael’s Mount in the distance.
