Father’s Day, Purple and Singing ‘Soldier’s Farewell’

1    Lovely cards and phone calls today for Mr S and my dear Dad (1916-2004) in my head all day.

2    Purple is one of my favourite colours (along with green – which with white, makes up the Suffragette colours, of which more in another post) Do click on the photo to see the furriness of the centre section, it’s so beautiful!

What’s left when the poppy petals have all dropped

Beautiful French Lavender

I wish you could smell this as well as see it – so lovely.

3   Singing tonight with the Treggies blew a touch of the blues away! We laugh, we sing and we sometimes cry! One song, ‘The Soldier’s Farewell’ is particularly moving and was, apparently, also sung by Cornish tin miners on the station as they were about to emigrate and leave their families far behind.

Perranporth, Sea Treasures and The Treggies

1  Part of Mikki’s birthday weekend was to walk along the beach at Perranporth. The tide was going out and there really were 3 miles of golden, almost untouched sand  to walk on. We went right to the far end and it was wonderful!

2  On our way back we walked at the high tide line noticing so many beautiful things and I collected lots more little treasures for my ‘washed up’ collection.

3  My turn to host the Treggies’ Sunday singing session – it was a good one. The neighbours loved hearing us through the walls!

The Big Garden Birdwatch, The Beatles and The Treggies

Long-tail tit family

1 We did the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch today and saw 17 different species and 37 birds in the allocated hour. Our delightful  family of six Long-tail Tits joined us along with the Goldcrest which we saw lots of times but always alone so he could only be counted once.

2  My lovely Sister-in-law from Atlanta sent us an email with the following link to ‘The Beatles: Here Comes The Sun! With a Guitar Solo You’ve Never Heard Before’  Magic! Mr S and I met to this song many years ago so it is special for us and this makes it even more so. Have a listen:  http://gizmodo.com/5880091/the-beatles-here-comes-the-sun

3  Singing with The Treggies tonight was, as usual, a good laugh and a challenge, all the more so when H’s keyboard suddenly had an attack of the Clangers so no-one could find their note. It recovered and so did we. Now we’re all ready for The Countryman Shout next Sunday.
