bad backs and clotted cream

Our holiday was a both work and play. Working on my Aunt's garden, play the exploration of beautiful Cornwall and enjoying friends.
It was the perfect time for Hydrangeas. I can never keep mine in Oxfordshire, blue.
All the conifers came down. Debris was burnt and a sudden change in the wind nearly took the fire into the corn fields. Hearts pounded.

views opened up
new places to sit
to be honest we had inadequate tools. Amateurs you see. But an extra bit of elbow grease went a long way. I have to hand it to my husband for his major efforts!
foraging from the wild
visits to Aunty in her Care Home. Dementia still her constant shadow. But photos and talk of the past lightened her and of course there is always lunch.
days out sightseeing and celebrating Birthdays.
More of what we saw to follow......

  1. What a lovely post. Those blackberries look yummy ~ they are one of my favourite fruits. We used to go blackberry picking regularly when I was a child ~ these days if you mention a blackberr,y folk think you mean a mobile phone!

    I'm glad Aunty can still enjoy memories. One of the only good things about dementia is that often long past memories of happier times become clearer. Blessings to her.

    It looks like you had a lovely trip.
