Pink Valentine’s Day

Sometimes nature can be sneakily romantic too. On Valentine’s Day just as the rain and windchill in Cornwall was almost freezing my wee face off…I then happened upon this.

It’s possibly the most flamboyant display of pink heather I’ve ever seen. I believe they call such heather the “Queen of Winter”. I can see why.

It’s so beautifully hardy, yet also considered by some to be a symbol of love. It certainly surprised me enough today to make my little Scottish heart skip a beat.

I felt immediately filled by the sheer technicolour – draped like fairy lights rejoicing across that black and white backdrop of drizzly haze.

I noticed the silenced cannon, rusting on the arm of the tiny harbour afore it. And the empty Navy frigate docked in the mist of the river, resting between assignments.

All eyes now are on this sea of pink, peppered with orange, that caresses away the grey. This bountiful banquet of a bouquet – gifting itself to us today.

So, a Happy Pink Valentine’s Day with love from Cornwall – to all you wonderful people, both near and afar ?
