Yellow, A Surprise and A Bee

Cornwall is very beautifully yellow at this time of year – Primroses in the hedgerows, Daffodils along the verges, Forsythia in gardens, Dandelions, Celandines and Gorse just everywhere, down every lane we travel along.

We bought the magazine Cornwall Today yesterday because there is a feature on Port Isaac where family will be staying this summer. Imagine my delight to find a short article about me and my Suffragette Great Granny! I had completely forgotten the phone call some months ago!

Bees have arrived in our garden. They love the Rosemary flowers.

Fridge Front, Hedgerow Top and Side

Yesterday, after posting the beautifully decorated Singer sewing machine, someone commented about the lack of decoration on white goods in general. I thought I would show you our fridge which we decorate with words and pictures that please us – remind us of somewhere or someone, or which are statements that we agree with. There’s a LiveWire handprint, a tiny piece of pottery from the wedding of friends, the photo of mine which was printed in the Guardian, a Suffragette poster and bits of art that we like…….

Magnets on our fridge

Every year the Primroses on top of a Cornish hedge on my walk up from town please me – so many and so delicate.

A bit further up  the lane these two beauties were waving in the wind.

Shelagh knows the name of these Narcissi! Pheasant Eye?

Felting Fun, Fresh Eggs and A Cornish Hedge

1    Last week I taught my lovely friend how to embroider and this week she has taught me how to felt a picture and what a delightful morning we had! I took with me a photo of one of our favourite places, Porthcurno Beach, and learned how to build up the felting to create the  picture.

I still have to add some embroidery, but for a first attempt, I am really pleased and so was my teacher!

2   Their hens are laying again so I came away with a half dozen beautiful eggs, two of which, the big blue ones, we had poached on Bubble and Squeak for our supper – delicious!

3   Driving home up the lanes, I was able to stop to take a photo of this gorgeous Cornish hedge. I love Primroses!

Primroses, Magnolia and A Man With A Dog

1  Walking into town today, the first time in several weeks, the hedgerows are suddenly full of delicately pale primroses. This bank of primroses is on the hill up to the Library.

2    Coming back up the lane a Magnolia was in full flower, glorious against the blue sky. The sun was warm this morning too.

3   We had a walk on the sands at Marazion this afternoon (though by that time the sun had gone in)  almost the only people on that stretch away from the causeway apart from a man with his dog, their left feet in unison!
