Malpas, Truro and A Question

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.

Going back into the bookshop was a special pleasure after such a long time. It wasn’t busy but the city of Truro was buzzing and very full of shoppers.

We now have a new supply of reading but one book that looked interesting, I left behind. Has anyone out there read it? Any comments?

I may have to go back for it…..



Planter, Cathedral and Bee Box

The baskets and planters in Truro are looking lovely, very Spring-like.

I love the tiles and all the shapes on this bit of Truro Cathedral.

One of the Cathedral gardens is labelled ‘Wild Truro’ and in amongst the wild flowers was this bee-box. I hadn’t thought of putting pine cones in a bee-box.

Raindrops, Lampshade and Cathedral

Raindrops on flowers, one of my favourite subjects for photos…..

After having the hall, stairs and landing painted, we would like a new lampshade . I love this one but it is still in the shop.

It has been a misty, mizzly day but the Cathedral in Truro is always beautiful.



Primula, Cathedral and Cyclamen

Truro was rather grey today but we always love being there whatever the weather. It was pleasing to see the winter plantings beginning to get colour.

The Cathedral rises up out of the buildings and can be seen from every angle as you approach the city.This view, for those who know the city, is from Redannick.

On the way home we stopped at Chacewater Market where this display of cyclamen was very attractive at the entrance.



Cathedral, Hedgehog and A House

Truro Cathedral was looking beautiful in the sunshine today.

There are hedgehogs on the Trafalgar roundabout!

LiveWire No2 has been talking about having a guinea pig as a pet. Today we saw a lovely house to keep it/them in.

LiveWires, Thunder Sky and Our Station

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..

Heavy showers were threatened in Truro today but the squirrel on top of the spire still glowed.

Buying train tickets today, I was delighted to spot this planter on the platform.

Travelling to Visit the LiveWires

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.

Peace, Blue Sky and Cathedral Spires

The sun coming through the window as I arrived in the kitchen this morning cast a shadow of Peace on the blind.

Shadow of PEACE

There has been a glorious blue sky all day.

Bunting in the breeze

Truro Cathedral is always beautiful , particularly so in the Spring sunshine.

New Baby, Cornish Cream Tea and Truro’s Flowers

We have a baby foal in the back field. We think he must have been born last night or even this morning while we were out as he is still a bit wobbly. Just look at his long legs and his beautiful perky ears. His Mum is staying very close whenever he takes a step away from her.DSCN4086 (1)

I loved the knitted strawberries on this cream tea display in a bakery in Truro.


The hanging flower baskets in Truro are fabulous again this year. Every corner turned shows more beautiful planting.These are in front of the Cathedral. A big thank you to the people who plant and look after these gorgeous displays.

Lovely People, Pink Laces and Cornwall

As well as finding many beautiful things in the last few days, I have made a couple of observations while getting about using a crutch in London –  1. The city is full of kind,  considerate and helpful people.  2. Travelling about by bus and tube and on foot is so very difficult when one is, albeit temporarily, disabled. Pavements are uneven, there are stairs everywhere and the buses are wobbly! It has been a case of, take a walk in someone else’s shoes. 

Here I have tied T’s pretty pink laces just before we left for our six hour journey home after a very busy and happy week.

I’ve often shown you the beauty of the Cornish coastline. Today here is some of the beauty of the county as seen from the train.
