It wasn't difficult for my birthday this year to be more relaxing than the last! We went for a Sunday ramble round Trelissick Garden, not far from Truro. I like it there so much because it's got a bit of everything - gardens, woodlands and meadows, an art gallery, tea shop and, of course, a National Trust shop. There was a small craft fair to poke about in and a morris dancing display!!!!!! What more could a girl want on her birthday!
Today in St. Ives it's pouring with rain and cold (and dark in the cottage) so I'm cheering myself up with these photos from Trelissick and hope they cheer you too! If you want to, you can click on the pictures to view them larger
Trees of every colour
I like roses "overblown"
Beautiful colours - this overblown rose looks "vintage"
Magnolia - "Charles Coates"
Patterns inside the foxgloves
Sheltering from the sun under a big oak tree
Meadow full of daisies looking out to Falmouth
