Narcissi, Golden Hour and Tea-Time

The border outside the kitchen has gone from the bright yellow of the Tete a Tete to whites  and pale yellows of Narcissi and blues and mauves of the Muscari and Anemones..

Next door’s big fir tree lights up beautifully with the golden hour sunlight.

It was tea-time for the lambs and their mothers as I was out catching the golden sunlight.

Raindrop, Dogwood and Sheep

A walk around Burncoose Nursery and gardens today, just for fun, not intending to buy anything, found puddles everywhere and droplets in the Lupin leaves after the morning rain. I love the patterns made here.  Zoom in if you can.

We really wanted to buy the beautiful Dogwood, China Girl, but can’t really find room for it.

We are enjoying watching the lambs in the back field growing up. There seem to be five now, of various sizes. I have to be very careful taking photos, keeping my distance or one of the sheep takes fright and they all rush to follow. I took this photo from the upstairs bedroom on a long zoom.

Train Journey, Home from Senegal and a Simple Supper

1    The train journey through English countryside:  The Somerset Levels, The White Horse, springy little  lambs, a Thelwell pony, flowers-in-a-boat on the station platform at Saltash, and above all, the vibrant green of the fields.

2   Coming home, beautiful bluebells and primroses in the front garden and coming into our house.

3  A very simple and very tasty supper of two poached eggs on toast!

and I’ll start writing about the beautiful things of Senegal tomorrow.
