Six on Saturday | Easter Edition

Miracles DO happen. It is a long weekend and the sun is shining. There will be no beach visits by me though as I have things to do in the garden. So far I have managed to re-pot all the Fuchsias that I bought last year so they can now be moved into the courtyard…

Trelissick Garden in Spring

Following on from our Woodland walk in the Trelissick estate we entered the garden. Although the sun was beginning to fade again behind the hazy clouds and the wind becoming increasingly chilly, we enjoyed a quick walk around the top part of the gardens taking in the wonderful spring blooms that are currently in flower,…

Trelissick Woodland Walk

Trelissick Garden is on the River Fal between Truro and Falmouth. It is a popular place for visitors and locals as there are substantial walks through the surrounding woodland estate and open countryside for dog walkers.¬† Last Saturday, on hearing that it would be the best day for a while, we decided to pop over…

Around Trencrom

In early April we were hit once more by wind and rain, freezing temperatures and hailstones, but shortly before that I managed to get in a circular walk around the lanes and the base of Trencrom Hill. Last time I did this I managed to get stuck in the mud and ended up walking half…

Six on Saturday | Hello April

April already and I am definitely loving the longer daylight hours. I have been busy taking delivery of several perennial plant orders placed over the last few months. Each one not much more than lunch out, but when totalling up the amount spent already I was astonished at how much it added up to. Shhh……

Penlee Park

Penzance is not known as a tourist destination in comparison to the likes of St Ives or Padstow or Newquay, mainly because it does not have the wonderful sandy beaches in those locations. It is more of a working town, a little gritty in places and too many charity shops. It does however have the…
