The hard working gardening team in Truro have filled the city with flowers in baskets, tubs and up lampposts, all beautifully tended and full of scented petunias. Here they are seen against the beautiful buildings on Lemon Street..

Our Sweet Peas are lovely and smell divine.
There’s a story behind this lovely painting of Truro Cathedral by F. Robson, possibly Featherstone Robson, 1880-1936.The lovely Mr S and I met in late October 1966 while at college in South Yorkshire. I had come from Truro and Mr S from Acton, London. Walking through Acton in early January 1967 after being in London for a few days to meet his parents as we had just decided to get married, we spotted this painting in a second hand shop and it seemed like a sign! It can’t have been expensive but I can’t remember how much. We bought it and it has had pride of place ever since.
What a treat to meet friends for breakfast again, lovely food and a long, long catch-up. Join us as we spot some charming sights as we stroll back to our car.
I may have to go back for it…..
I enjoy getting the beds ready for a LiveWire visit. The duvet covers were made by my Mum many years ago and I love the fact that the LiveWires’ Great Granny made their bed covers. ClothKitty, made by me about 40 years ago, a Wild Thing and Bagpuss await LiveWire No 4’s arrival tomorrow..
We love the long train journey to London. After the hoohah of getting ready, the moment we step on the train we begin our adventure which starts with three days in London with family…….. Click on any photo for the captions and a bigger view.
We left Cornwall in 10C and arrived in London to 25C! Stepping off the air-conditioned train was like stepping off a plane in Greece! Last night we had no WiFi hence the late post.
