English Countryside and Airport Sunset

It’s a five hour train journey from Cornwall to the metropolis and we love every minute, watching the world go by, reading the paper and our novels. Here is a glimpse from the train of our glorious green countryside.

Tomorrow we fly to Portugal for a walking holiday, four nights in Porto and five nights in Lisbon. The sunset from our hotel room was quite dramatic.

Frilly Poppy, Haymaking and Nigella

A poppy opened this morning.

Hay is being made in the field behind our house. How lovely to be back in the country side after our week in London!

The Love-in- the -Mist , self seeded this year, is in flower.

 Roses, Leaves and Sweet Potato Salad

What a scorcher, as they say! We don’t get heat quite like London heat in the far South West of the U.K where we live. We have melted the day away here! We all found respite in the coolth of the park where the children played, we all enjoyed ice creams and I enjoyed the scent of the roses and the sunlight through the Copper Beech leaves.

Supper was roast chicken and a delicious mix of salads including Sweet Potato Salad presented beautifully in one of Nicky Stephenson’s gorgeous pots.

Twin Pram, Grandbabies and A Flower

Shopping is quite an adventure with the ‘bus’!


One smiley baby and one much more serious this afternoon.

LiveWire No1 drew my attention to this beautiful white flower whose name I don’t know. I love the raindrops, on it and the buds, left after the storm.

A Gift, Bluebells and Bunny

I was given a present this morning, just because! It is a set of slot together silicon panels to make any size, shape of cake so this afternoon I made a heart shaped Lemon Drizle cake for next door. Thank you, N, perfect present and excellent timing.xx

I forgot to take a photo of the cake!

On my walk this afternoon, the lane was full of richly coloured English Bluebells.

Daughter No Three is with us for Bill next door’s funeral tomorrow as she once worked with WildWorks on Babel. She has left her daughter with Daddy but LiveWire 4 sent her Bunny to keep Mummy company.

Feather, Kuan Yin and Love Birds

I love the dew drops on this feather that are catching the sunlight.

Dawn, Pin and Card

Winter dawns are often very lovely.

A most unexpected parcel was waiting for us on our return with a couple of delightful presents from our long-lost and recently found very special friend. I love this heart pin with its message on the back of love and peace – and the same to you P.

Today I received a belated birthday card from some more special friends. I love the sentiment expressed here which is just what N and G do! Thank you!
