I was invited to sing in a lovely concert last Saturday, a mixed programme of English 20th century music for choir, with some brass (Inner City Brass - look and listen out for them, they are marvellous!) and organ music for balance. Richard, the conductor and organiser, gave me the beautiful yellow rose with gypsophila as a Thankyou.
Looks cheerful and spring-like with these double daffodils.
Sorry, not great quality from my 'classic' pink Sony Ericsson, no iPhone or Blackberry for me!
I believe we also share our patron Saint with Georgia, Lithuania, Greece, Istanbul and Moscow amongst others, as well as with soldiers, archers, cavalry and chivalry, saddlers, horse riders and farmers. He's a busy Saint!
I made some lemon curd yesterday, for Susan's edible Birthday gift. I gave her The Gentle Art of Knitting by the wonderful Jane Brocket (look at her marvellously inspiring blog at www.yarnstorm.blogs.com) as well. It's a great book, I have made lots of things from it, and she has a really engaging writing style.
