Few words today
but a quick trot around our garden which is burgeoning in the warm sun.
Showers are frequent and heavy , but then it is April after all.
These pictures were taken yesterday afternoon as I fed the livestock and was drawn by the play of golden light on the shadier parts of the whole.
I have written before of my love of this time of day where calm descends on the garden for just a moment before the dinnertime rush calls me inside once more. I love calm.
Even the hens and ducks quieten for a while.
Forget-me-nots, vivid red tulips, soft honesty and verdant green leaf are all around with blossoms opening on a higher level.
It is all very lovely and will hopefully become even lovelier over the coming weeks.
Have a lovely weekend xx

Ages since I've popped by and yet again I have missed this little space. Holiday time is so full of good things and yet this is one thing I cannot always make time for in the family bedlam that is the Easter holidays. Never mind, here are some snapshots of a Cornish Easter - well, the one we had anyhow. There was wonderful sunshine and trips to the beach to jump in icy waves.
Peering in rockpools and looking at sea life
Games with big sister with the breeze whipping up the girls as much as the waves.
There were jugs and cups and vases of flowers all grown in our own garden and perfuming the whole house with their beautiful perfume.
The cutting patch in the front garden is coming to an end but a new one has been planted in the back garden ready to keep us going all through summer. I have grown to like these strange orange edged daffodils as long as they are popped into the bottle with a few other types to soften the glow.
Even Tiger-Lily enjoyed sniffing the pretty blooms.
And then there were trips to the beach
Jumping in icy waves
Playing with big sis...
You get the picture
I'll leave it there for now but there was also chocolate (of course), huge meals, sitting in the courtyard, family visiting, gardening .. Hmm, I said I would leave it didn't I! x
