Alice in a heatwave

Cerulean skies, Cornish palm in flower, sleepy sheep and Alice surrounded by the dairy herd. The view from our house in the country just gets better.

    This iconic view is to die for, Jude!! (well, almost) 😉
    I just noticed we all turned green with envy, Siri and Selma love the colour match of their summer dresses. 🍀💚💚💚💚🍀
    It looks like the photo is taken from an elevated point, is your hous on a little hilltop?
    Have a great weekend, wishing you the best of all summers in Cornwall – now that we have celebrated summer solstice in Norway 🇳🇴

      I remember celebrating midsummer in Norway – beacons lit on the top of the mountains – and a time when sleep was virtually impossible because it never really gets dark! The photos were taken from the upstairs window, but yes, we are practically on the top of a hill 🙂

    Oh, behave! It just gets cooler and ‘fresher’ up here. 🙂 🙂

      Oh, Jo, don’t be a misery guts!!

      1. restlessjo says:

        If you had seen me floundering in mud and scrambling over rocks this afternoon, Sue, you would have had a good chortle. 🙂 Misery guts, indeed!

        1. Sue says:

          Oh, goodness, Jo…no injuries, I hope….and no, I wouldn’t have chortled. I do draw the line somewhere !

        2. restlessjo says:

          A near miss, Sue. Still smiling 🙂 🙂

    2. Heyjude says:

      Says she who nips off to the Algarve at any excuse 😉

      1. restlessjo says:

        Pokes tongue out! And you really can’t blame me. 🙂 I bit off more than I could manage on the Moors this afternoon. A bit of ungainly scrambling going on. 😦 Enjoy tomorrow! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the weather.

        1. Heyjude says:

          Weather very changeable here today – hope tomorrow is sunnier!

  4. Wow, what an outlook. It’s so green and gorgeous.

    1. Heyjude says:

      there is a reason it is so green… 😀 😀

  5. Sue says:

    Fabulous, enviable view, the more so for including a ruin!

  6. KerryCan says:

    I love Wheal Alice best of all–I think I walked up that hill in the background!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Trink Hill? Or perhaps you climbed up Trencrom hill which is the one with the NT car park leading to the top of it.

      1. KerryCan says:

        I think you’re right–Trencrom Hill. What a beautiful place you call home!

  7. Oh what absolutely gorgeous photographs! What a stunning view!


    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you, a little cloudier today 🙂

  8. Pit says:

    I know many people have said it here before, but I’d still like to chip in: I absolutely envy you these views!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Makes a change from looking at other people’s houses, but then we can’t just walk to a bus stop, so there are pros and cons. For the moment though I am happy enough to put up with the cons 😀

      1. Pit says:

        Luckily we are not too close to other people’s houses either. And for the views: ours are not that far-reaching, but we (nearly) always have deer in our garden. So that’s great, too. And as for the bus: there’s no bus service at all in Fredericksburg. So, there are always pros and cons, as you said, and it’s a matter of what one prefers. We’re very happy here, too.

  9. Lucid Gypsy says:

    Ooh lovely and bright and your header is gorgeous!

    1. Heyjude says:

      It is rather beautiful when you can see it 😉

  10. Val says:

    I love these photos and your enthusiam for the place. 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you Val 🙂

  11. Lignum Draco says:

    How many blogs do you have? 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Three. This one only on Cornwall, the Travel Blog for travels elsewhere and photo challenges and the garden blog because that is fairly specialised. When it comes to having to pay for a blog site I may just have the one!!

  12. Wow Jude – that’s your view? It’s glorious! And what a heatwave too…long gone now though 😦 Although it was almost too hot. Grey and rain now but then again, at least I have full water butts again 😉 xxx

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes that sort of heat is too much for my pale English skin, but it was nice to be able to sit outside and read for a change. Cold, wet and blustery now again. Be nice to have a happy medium!

      1. Yes…it definitely would!

  13. Joanne Sisco says:

    I know you’ve posted this view a few times in different seasons, but I didn’t realize it was the view from your house!! NICE!!!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Every time I look at it I remember why it was we bought this house even though it is next to smelly and noisy cattle.

I like a like, but I love a chat
