Cake and Kayaking

Today The Frustrated Gardener celebrated three years on the World Wide Web, but there was a more significant party in town, my dad’s 70th. He marked his special day (held over from January for obvious reasons) with a morning sea kayaking with my sister on the Helford River in Cornwall. Grandma, Him Indoors and I were left holding the baby: not such a trial when said baby is my delightful neice Martha and the setting is the bucolic Budock Vean Hotel. Much tea was drunk, many rhododendron blossoms collected, banana flowers wondered at (Musa lasiocarpa, below) and, of course, there was cake aplenty. By the end of the day were all rosy cheeked and the better for it. I think we should have birthdays more often.

  1. It was my birthday yesterday and I celebrated by kayaking and buying myself a cake. Perfect. However my child came with me kayaking. It is never too early to kayak.
