Cornwall this morning


The early morning light at the beginning of the day

We woke up to perfect blue skies this morning so any one coming to Cornwall this weekend is in for a treat. The first hours of the morning are always very special and this morning as Charles and I went to feed and turn out the horses before cooking our guests breakfast the morning sun was just beginning to catch the edge of the little courtyard where we sometimes serve breakfast as the summer draws on. The dew lay heavy on the grass this morning after the recent storms but the day promises to be prefect as the horses sniffed the air in appreciation before strolling away to conduct their own private horse business ans we went in to tackle the sausages.

My poor pot there was a victim of the winter gales, always a top heavy design - i fear a trip to the garden centre is imminent!!
