Six on Saturday | Ch ch changes…

It is one year ago that I decided to join in with the Prop’s Six On Saturday meme. I must say that I have enjoyed every week having a nosy around other people’s gardens and checking out what is happening in my own. There is one problem though. I have ended up with an extremely…

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

Can you ever have too many Camellias?

Cornish gardens are notorious in early spring for their abundance of Camellias, Magnolias, Azaleas and Rhododendrons.¬† And this year I am trying to visit as many as possible. In addition to the exercise we get by walking the miles of footpaths, I get to indulge my passion for flowers and my love of photography. Trengwainton…
