Rose Hips, Cakes and Estha’s Story

The Rose hips were in someone’s garden in Truro or I might have picked them to make syrup.

Before the show, Estha’s Story,  at Heartlands this evening, there was singing and cake in the Diaspora garden. The cakes were magnificent! All made by Little Crumbs and decorated with edible flowers.

The show was amazing! Yskynna, the aerial dance company and the singers combined to tell the story of a Cornish Bal maiden and the audience loved it. Click on any photo in the gallery for a closer look.

Soup, Estah’s Story and A Surprise

It has been a wild day with a wintery feel, down to 17C! I made a delicious warming soup of Squash, Sweet Potato and Carrot and loved how the chunks looked in the pan. The soup was pretty too.

At choir we have been rehearsing for a production in August. If you are local, it will be well worth going to see this story of the diaspora.

In my absence,  the wild winds had taken the top off one of our palm trees!

Harbour View, Yucca and Plant ID?

I was in Falmouth for another day of Ghost Ships by Yskynna. This is the view from the window of the Maritime Museum.

The Yuccas are in flower.

I have seen the following spectacular plant many times and did once know its name but cannot bring it to mind. There must be someone out there who knows! J?

Ghost Ships, Busking and Sweet Chestnut

Ghost Ships featuring The Suitcase Singers

The show by  Yskynna started yesterday and I was part of it today – three 20 minute shows a day and free for anyone already in the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth. If you live nearby and have children to entertain this half term, the museum is fabulous and the production a treat!

After the second show, we went out busking for a while, collecting for our charities – ShelterBox and St Petroc’s.

On our walk later on, we found lots of spiny casings from the Sweet Chestnut tree.
