I’ve had another brief letter published in The Guardian. Simple pleasures delight me!

You may remember, Dear Reader, that I wrote about Cornish Hurling at the end of last month. You can see the post by clicking here. My letter was published in The Guardian yesterday!
I needed them in particular for a recipe I had just read in today’s Feast that comes on Saturdays with our Guardian newspaper. Here is the Tomato and Courgette Loaf with Tomato Chutney. This afternoon I met with our lovely neighbour for a cup of tea in the garden and we each had a piece of the loaf and both declared it to be delicious.
It’s so lovely that we can still find beautiful flowers to bring indoors. Here we have some Jasmine that we pruned yesterday, some Fuchsia that we have pruned today and a Calla Lily that has been broken by the wind.
If you read yesterday’s post and wondered what the creature was, I have added a P.S. to the post with the id that came today from the Royal Entomological Society!
Jamie Oliver has a new programme that we caught by accident last week where he is helping people to cook with limited ingredients, encouraging experimenting if you don’t have all the ‘correct’ ingredients and demonstrated a no egg Chocolate Cake (as eggs are very hard to come by at the moment. I scribbled down the recipe – very quick and easy, no eggs, lots of nuts and oh, so moreish! We had it warm with single cream. It would be good with ice-cream too.
We left some on the step for our lovely neighbour to try too and a note for the neighbours on the other side that there is some waiting for them in thanks for the SR flour they found for us.
Tonight’s meal was another new recipe, this time a Yotam Ottolenghi one from this weekend’s Feast magazine that comes with The Guardian. I served it with yogurt and slivered almonds and a naan rather than with the suggested rice. But, seriously, who grates a tomato let alone four?! We chopped them and it worked really well and was very tasty. We had no spinach so I used the cauliflower greens chopped up instead.
The Guardian newspaper printed my letter this morning! There has been ongoing correspondence for the last month about marmalade making and I joined in! Regular readers will know about my marmalade making every January.
Storm Ciara did a good job of flattening our Spring flowers. They were just beginning to perk up when Dennis arrived. The Crocuses and little Iris Reticulata have suffered the most. The Tete a Tete are still standing up.
One of my photos has been published today in The Guardian on their weather pages! I am over the moon! You can find the original here.
Walking through Penryn today, I was drawn to a lovely red door with a wreath of autumn leaves.
One of my favourite shops has a new mural, a winter one replacing the sunny, summer one. I love seeing them. The artist is Elizabeth Perry.
