Blue Skies...

We had some sunshine over the weekend...

Which we got a glimpse of between jobs...
Portmellon

Mevagissey





On Sunday we even managed a picnic at Pendower...

Which is on The Roseland...





The roundhouses at Veryan...

A favourite place... 
The owners are lovely people & they've missed Sime's silly comments in their visitor's book - as we haven't visited for 2 years... But he made up for it by writing lots!!!

There is a little trail around the pond...

We rather like this part of the trail... 

The teapot walk...


It was nice going back...

And even nicer to have some sun!

Hope you're all having a good week.
We've heard there's a heatwave on it's way, but we'll not hold our breath...

Seeing Scarlet & family again tomorrow - they are bravely getting the full Smith clan treatment...

Wonder if they know what they are letting themselves in for?

Lovely blue skies! I LOVE the photo with the blue flowers in the foreground (can't remember what they're called now, the ones on that big shrub!) We had sunshine today for the first time in weeks..yey! Did some hoeing in the garden!

It all looks gorgeous, I love the round houses. Do they have crosses on the top to stop witches landing on the roofs? (I'm sure I read that somewhere).
Hahaha... Thank you!

Just wished it would stay a bit longer!

There are 5 of them altogether. They were built by Reverend Trist for his daughters & we've been told the reason for them being round, was so the devil couldn't hide in any corners! The crosses are probably for extra protection...

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy? 
We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down was to write mor…

Soil, Soul and Society

Please take some time to watch this video.
Take some time to look at your life and learn how to live differently.

If  you are unhappy, make changes to your life.
Find gratitude in each day.

Try not to criticise others and instead feel compassion.

Enjoy time in nature.
Be quiet and calm.

There is so much anger and stress surrounding many of you out there at the moment...
Take care of yourselves, take time out from the news and stop worrying about how many times your neighbours are venturing out. Occupy yourselves doing something new and interesting instead.

Most of our days are spent weeding, planting, cooking and eating.
We go to bed earlier than we have done in years, usually aching...pleasantly so though!
We are learning about growing vegetables, enjoying playing with soil and it feels good spending lots of time out on the land.



Sending you all much love,

Kay and Sime xx





Nettles

Our garden yesterday.
Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now.
This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.
~ Edward Thomas ~
Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem!

Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine...


Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food.
Nettles are rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…
