Suffragette Garden, ‘The Lion and Albert’ and Rosemary

1   Just look at these beautiful narcissi coming into flower in my garden to honour Suffragettes, all in purple, white and green.  The Hebes are doing well too.

2   I was talking about this very entertaining poem with a good friend the other day.  If you don’t know it, do listen to this recording by Stanley Holloway:     This edition, illustrated by Caroline Holden, done as a photograph album, is a delight.

Flat Lode Trail, First Snowdrops and Last of our Leeks

1  A lovely walk today in winter sunshine up and around behind our house on the Flat Lode Trail – views of the sea, a beautifully mossy tree, bright yellow gorse and lots of time to talk.

2  Mr S spotted our first snowdrops on his way to dig up …….

3  ……. our last leeks. Tonight we’ll have them in a creamy white sauce with our Sweet Potato and Chestnut Roast.
