It rained in the night and the garden seems delighted! I spent most of the rainy day sewing and completed my first six scrub caps. Our walk was short, just along the lane where we foraged more Wild garlic and dodged a shower.

Today is a day of sunshine and showers and I popped out between showers to find my Six for this Saturday. I love catching raindrops in my photos and it is so lovely to see signs of Spring, albeit only a few flowers just yet – but – Spring is coming. The grass hasn’t stopped growing all winter. It was mowed only last week and is up again but it is far too wet to be cut right now.
You, too, could join in Six on Saturday! Just have a look at the post and the comments here.
What an original way to reuse old pallets! I was delivering Christmas cards in the neighbourhood and came upon this beauty!
There was a really heavy mist today, so much so that Carn Brea couldn’t be seen, never mind the monument or castle. However, that meant that there were mist drops aplenty for the photographing! First, there is the Hebe, covered in purple flowers and with some droplet covered stamens where the flowers have finished.
Next a beautiful Primrose flower…………
The Cherry On Top this week was going for a walk after the rain finally stopped and finding some beautiful raindrops caught in webs and on leaves. Click on any photo to see the reflections in the drops and to appreciate the strings of diamonds on the webs in the grass. For others in this Challenge click this link.
You may have gathered that my parents were auction aficionados – I have mentioned a number of their bargain buys before. These books came in a job lot and became mine and I just loved them. I think some of my love of Egypt came from reading these stories and some from my visits to the Truro Museum.
Our first foreign holiday with our children, teenagers all, was to Egypt and there we bought this lovely plate and coffee pot and six tiny coffee cups.
There is lots of colour still in the garden but today I thought to concentrate on the green. There is a Poppy bud which I hope will have time to open before the winter sets in.
My fern patch in the shady area is looking good.
There are a couple of courgettes (zucchini) on the plant. We will probably use them as baby ones as the growing season is coming to an end. Having said that, it has been quite warm and the lawn just keeps growing!
1 There was rain overnight and then sun so I went out to get a photo of our snowdrops.
2 You’ll have to search for this!
3 I did my first baking since the op! Gingerbread and it is delicious! Recipe etc to follow. Off to the ballet tonight! Ballet Rambert! Yippee!
1 I don’t mind the rain at all! I love raindrops on flowers and the serendipity of reflections that turn up.
2 Our lovely neighbour gave us some just-dug new potatoes and I cooked them with mint. Today I used the very pretty Variegated Mint from our herb garden.
3 Having my brother here is making me very happy.
1 On our way home the other day, we did some shopping. My favourite shopping is for kitchen gadgets (or for yarn or fabric!) I love the design of this garlic crusher which works by being rocked over the garlic clove. It is simply beautiful to look at – I don’t yet know how good it is at the job! I’ll let you know.
2 In the same shop, I found the perfect present for a very good friend whose birthday was yesterday and to whose birthday meal we are going this evening. Hugs are just what she needs right now.
3 We have lots of Spring flowers here in Cornwall already but we are not through the wild, wet season just yet. There are flood warnings for the whole of the Cornish coastline tonight and tomorrow as big winds and big tides coincide yet again and I hope everyone keeps safe. I do like catching raindrops on the flowers in the breaks between downfalls.
