Flowers, Bubbles and Singers

It was the 2nd Redruth Monthly Street Market today and once again, it was full of colour and fun, stalls and singers. The hanging baskets around our town are looking gorgeous.

The Buttermarket was hung with bunting, someone was blowing bubbles, people sat around drinking coffees and cold drinks …….

………. and listening to The Red River Singers singing Cornish songs and shanties. A lovely happy morning was had by all. I love our little town!

Redruth Market, Guard Dog and Thrift

The inaugural Redruth Street Market was held today and it was lovely to see our small town buzzing. We had pizzas for lunch from the travelling pizza van, Flour Power Pizza Parlour and they were delicious!

Sunsets this last weeks have been amazing so we went off to the cliffs to watch another beauty take place. There we met a beautiful dog guarding its owner who was asleep in his van after surfing.

I’m watching you!

The Thrift along the cliffs was glorious too.

Moss, Hydrangea and Sally-boots,

The moss is very brightly green along Lovers’ Lane, our quick circuit walk.

There are still some beautiful Hydrangea flowers in a neighbour’s garden.

I’ve been knitting some little boots for the newest member of our family, a Great Niece born just before Christmas. We’ll post them off tomorrow.

Welly Dogs, Fun and Helping

A delightful day was had by all, half the family going into Truro for shopping and we, with LiveWire T, going into Redruth, enjoying the Welly Dogs, going to Home Ground coffee shop for a treat, playing in the park, chopping the tomatoes for the guacamole for supper and finally learning how to do French knitting.

Blue Sky, Shadow and Carn Brea

On my two mile walk back from delivering our car to the garage early this morning, I was, as always, keeping a lookout for lovely things and I found them!

Window, Tulips and A Glass of Wine

I noticed a very pretty stained glass window in our lovely town for the first time today.

Our Tulip border is looking gorgeous, just one rogue red one among the pale pink and white ones. The purple ones are only just starting to bloom and the blue Muscari are finishing off. I do love Spring flowers.

It has been a glorious day today and the first where we could sit out quite late with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down. It is beginning to feel like the beginning of Summer!  Our friend, Shelagh, tell us it is snowing again in Vermont!

A Wedding, A Parade and the Clock Tower 

I was the Celebrant for the loveliest Humanist Wedding Ceremony today. I just love how personal and special these ceremonies are. With their permission, here are the beautiful and very happy Bride and her Husband.My choirs, The Inglehearts and The Suitcases,  sang for the Christmas lights switch on in Redruth this evening. The parade of all the local schools with their lanterns was delightful and the singing, of course, very well received! I love it when the audience also join in, especially with the much loved Cornish carols written by Thomas Merritt.Waiting for my lift after the event, the following caught my eye.It looked like eyes and golden hair. In fact, it is two faces of the town clock and the lit up underside of the viaduct.
