A day lent




The Cornish have a saying for a day like today - they call it a day lent - I tend to think because it is a period of respite from the bad weather or is it a case of out of the frying pan in to the fire tomorrow? And sure enough the weather men are growling over their charts again so lets wait and see! But today a mist of dew carpeted the lawn, the sky was blue and the birds sang and I rode over to St Hilary with Danilon our Spanish Stallion to use the school near there, set against a beautiful tree lined valley. Eventually tired but happy we made our way home through the familiar streets of Goldsithney and across the A394 but the morning in the luke warm sunshine was blissful - definitely a day lent.
