Daffodils, Castle and Santa

We were delighted to see Daffodils in bud on a verge on our walk today.

We had sunshine every now and then today and I caught Carn Brea, the Castle and the Monument in a bit of it.

On the way home we spotted a Santa whose rope ladder seemed to have run out as he looks down rather despondently contemplating jumping off the bottom…….

Our lovely neighbour is safely out of self-isolation as her contact’s test has come back negative. Relief all around.

Rear Window Boxes, Dandelion and Carn Brea

I was pleased to see my favourite car parked along the road in Penryn as I walked to the hairdresser. I love these window boxes.

Spring flowers

What a lovely splash of gold among the heather.

The view of Carn Brea changes depending on the direction you are looking from. This was from Barncoose.

Sunset

First photo driving home from Truro and catching the view of Carn Brea from Station Hill,  Redruth, just as the sun slipped below the horizon, on a long zoom:

Then as the sky turned pink, from the back bedroom window:

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!

Teddy Bear, Carn Brea and Brodiaea

Before supper tonight at The Blue Bar we walked on the beach and passed by a Teddy Bear being hauled up the beach on a miniature surfboard.

Driving home from Porthtowan it is always a joy to see Carn Brea with its castle and monument.

A lovely friend brought me an enormous bunch of Brodiaea which are now on the hall table in a beautiful Jane Hamlyn pot.

Bunch of Flowers, Mist and Our Littlest Live-Wire

The Sunday morning car-boot sale was small this morning as it had been raining but I found this beautiful bunch of home-grown flowers.DSCN1992

Driving home, the Bassett Monument on Carn Brea disappeared into the mist.

This afternoon L arrived with Littlest Live-Wire who was immediately at home and helping in the garden. It is a very special time indeed when Grand-babies come to visit.
