Windblown, Nigella and Pork Pies

Such wind and rain over night and the garden has suffered. The Aliums have blown over across the Daisies and Cosmos creating a rather dramatic purple, white and green picture which I love.The golden roses below which looked fabulous yesterday have lost all their petals.

The self sown Love-in-a-Mist is flowering – such a pretty flower and a lovely delicate palette of colours from blue through to white with all shade of pinks and mauves between.

I spent a happy hour baking over Skype with LiveWire No 2 today, his choice of recipe, Mini Pork Pies, which have turned out really well. We had a couple for supper with veg and they tasted scrummy. I am going to freeze the others for picnics later in the summer when the London contingent of our family are coming to stay nearby so that we can see each other again, first time this year. It will have been over 8 months since we have seen each other in person……It’ll be fun to actually share the pies with J after having baked them with him this afternoon.

Good Advice, Porthtowan and Love-in-a-Mist

1   A friend sent me this advice and it pleases me. I’ve seen a sunrise, looked at the stars, have the right kind of coffee table and look for the small beautiful things every day but I’m not sure about the trampoline! I am inspired by a fellow blogger to get a pogo stick so that could substitute!

Watch the sun rise at least once a year

2   It has been another glorious day today.  The Grand-kids love the freedom of the sands at Porthtowan which is a beautiful beach and only 10 minutes from home.

3   The Love-in-a-Mist is at last in flower. It’s one of my favourites, delicate and beautiful and the seed head later is also a delight.
