Cornish favourites: Trelissick

I have been to the Trelissick gardens many times and usually in spring time when the grounds are full of the usual Cornish blooms – magnolia, camellia, rhododendrons, azaleas. There are several walks through the parkland and woodland too.

It is a place I never tire of, but maybe next time I shall continue across the River Fal using the King Harry ferry and visit more of the scenic and unspoilt Roseland peninsula.

    Beautiful shots, especially your first one. Hope you do catch the ferry one of these days, sounds like it will be glorious.

    1. Heyjude says:

      As you can see from the map the ferry crossing is very short! But it cuts off about 20 miles and the Roseland peninsula is very pretty. Haven’t spent enough time there.

      1. BeckyB says:

        You have a mission!

        1. Heyjude says:

          I have lots of plans, but often they fall by the wayside 😦

        2. BeckyB says:

          oh 😦 still it is fun to plan

    Could I come? Ferries and Rhodies are 2 of my favourite things, she says wistfully. 😦 😦

    1. Heyjude says:

      You and your rhodies! You really ought to come down to Cornwall in late April to see them in all their glory.

  3. I’m so ready for spring and this looks the perfect place to enjoy it!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Trelissick is lovely at any time of the year to stroll around. I shall be very happy to return to the Cornish gardens. Not so bad today except for the wind.

    Another one I had missed. Lovely to see the photos, and that’s a great Cornish place name too.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    I bet you can’t wait for the weather to improve so you can get out and about.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes. It would be nice to revisit these places. But I am very patient πŸ™‚

  6. Anabel Marsh says:

    Even a short ferry ride adds excitement to a walk – I hope you do that some day soon and tell us all about it.

    Love the fallen petals!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Like confetti πŸ™‚

  8. Beautiful photos and such great material! πŸ™‚

      Thank you Lynette πŸ™‚

    I see I have been before to walk this garden with you Jude, but of course I cannot remember that far back so it was good to revisit. The King Harry ferry ride sounds like a must do…

    1. Heyjude says:

      I have enjoyed the revisits too πŸ™‚
