St Peter Port Daisy

St. Peter Port is the capital of Guernsey in the Channel Islands and this unusual daisy is named after it. It thrives on and indeed in sunny granite walls, as the first shot shows.

Walking through the village du putron to the South Coast today, the sea and sky melded into a grey in distinct horizon.

Here is a peek at a couple of stunning houses which are being built – they have the unrivalled views captured in my shoreline shots.


Not too many people post from guernsey and the Channel Islands, so if you want to know/see more, just ask!

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

  1. No, Barbara, unless you are an old Guern – a dying breed. They (Londoners) could tell I am from Scotland! A few still speak guernsey patoire which is a variant of French.
    Historically the islands swung between French and English ownership, so roads etc look like French but usually aren’t pronounced as the French would.
    As an outsider, I think a South African Cape accent has lots of similarities- don’t ask me how that happened. I’d say educated people here have no accent!


i'd love to hear from you...
