Funnies (pt 2) and freedom

The joys of spellchecker, part two:

Rudbeckia hirta = Rebecca Hart.
Wow - this could be a new way to invent names for fiction characters.

Less helpfully, a nice winter-flowering scented shrub comes to a smelly end:
Mahonia = ammonia. Ugh.

I'm off down to Cornwall tomorrow, hurrah - staying in a converted anchor foundry in Polruan. A week of sea air, decent fish and chips and proper scrumpy cider, walking and watercolour-painting. Peace and quiet and open air...

Have a good week, everyone!

Ruairi, have just made a reciprocal visit and your butternut squash recipe is seriously inspiring. As is your hair (ginger AND curly - nice one!) - and I am so envious of the fact your are a percussion student. My father would be laughing in his grave ; Baby Bro is already a keen amateur timpanist and here I am wishing I'd kept it up too...
Mind you, when I first read your comment for a moment I thought you said you were "caught by the tagine". You're not the only food lover out there...
