Snow, Ice and Molehills

Hello,

It’s slow going with the walking so far this year – life is just too busy at the moment!

Never mind, the kitchen is nearly finished at least and I’m hopeful the weather is going to improve. I’m reliably informed that daffodils are blooming in Cornwall – surely it can’t be too long before we see them up here too! However, although the snow has all gone for now –  the rain is back!

Last weekend whilst the snow was still lying in parts, Mr RR and I took a 6 mile ramble along the Teviot accompanied by middle son.  It was very icy underfoot and hard going in parts, but despite the need to constantly watch where my feet were going I did enjoy it.

We’ve also managed a couple of short local walks in between storms and floods but I’m itching to get out and about a bit more now.  Sadly its not going to happen this week…..but watch this space, there are some keen walkers around and about and I’m hoping to join them for some exercise very soon.

Perranuthnoe – one last time?

Wednesday, 16th September 2015

Hello again!

We thought we’d take our favourite ramble around Perranuthnoe with a little diversion into Marazion.  It’s a lovely walk this one and we nearly always see some interesting birds foraging in the quiet coves along the way.  And it might be the last time……….that’s what I kept thinking as we walked along.

The Trelissick Man and The Men of the Trees

Sunday, 13th September 2015

Hello

Firstly – welcome to new readers!

Mr RR and I took a trip to Trelissick for a look at the gardens, and found the hydrangeas, which are not really my favourite plants, looking lovely, especially the amazing Hydrangea peniculata ‘Burgundy Lace’ which is blooming in the round border outside of the house.  If I was going to buy a hydrangea, this would definitely be the one!
