A Fairy Door and a Princely Tree
Wednesday, February 24, 2021
I just wanted to share my pictures with you from today's visit to Trengwainton Gardens.
There was hardly anyone else there today, so it was very restful. There are lots of Camellias in the garden which shed their gorgeous petals. This is a natural 'fairy door' in the base of a tree, and a vibrant pink petal has fluttered down there
This caught my eye today - I think it's Butterbur just wandering out of the flower-bed there! It was striking
At the top of the garden there is The Terrace, which looks out over Mounts Bay (over Newlyn and out to sea). There are some nice benches there, and two white-painted wooden pavilions - one of which is a designated 'silent space'.
and behind the benches, is this little tree, which was planted by HRH The Prince Phillip. He is currently in hospital and will have his 100th birthday in June this year. I hope he makes it.
