Umbrellas, Memorial and A Robin

Walking through Bodmin this morning, we passed this colourful arcade full of umbrellas.

In the car park, I was delighted to see that this memorial  is for all dogs to get a drink from and is in memory of a couple, special to their owners as all pets are. Thought of you and Bertie, Mandy, with love.

Once home, the Robin, who frequently perches on our sculpture but who usually flies off before I can grab my camera, stayed put long enough for this photo.

Wheal Amelia, Butterfly and A Magpie

Cornwall is scattered with old engine houses, relics of the days when tin and copper were mined here. This one I saw today used to be called Wheal Amelia but as you will see from the plaque there is more to its history than that.

An unusual butterfly landed on the shed roof today. It turns out to be a Wall Brown, Lasiommata Megera.

A Magpie landed on our beautiful sculpture, Fledgling, by Richard Holliday, to wait for its turn at the feeders.DSCN4676
