3    In Nalder’s Court, Truro,  there is a lovely tree in Autumny colours and I loved the way the fallen ones made patterns in the grid.

Shadows, Skies and Another Simple Supper

1   We have shadows! We have sun – therefore we have some beautiful shadows.

More Goodbyes, Pink and Unknown Flower

1   The Munich branch of the family left this morning – more tears, more hugs……

First cousins hug

2   So many pink flowers on the walk back from the park

Dog rose

Nutmeg flower

Lovely pale pink rose

3   This afternoon I found this, as yet unknown, flower in among the broad beans and their companion planting of Limnanthus (poached egg plant)  Anyone out there know what it is?

Beautiful blue veining

Beautiful Day, Agapanthus and Martin Gravestone

1   The sun has shone on us today. We took the twenty minute  ferry ride from Falmouth to St Mawes and the fourteen of us had lunch together on the terrace at The Rising Sun, looking out to the sea.

2   There were beautiful Agapanthus in abundance in St Mawes.

3   On the way home we had a family pilgrimage to Gwennap Churchyard to see the gravestone that inspired Dad to write his first novel, Jeremy Visick.

No photos today as one of the children fell asleep in the study as soon as we got home and is still there, expected to sleep all night!  I’ll add them tomorrow.
