      That’s what I thought too, Pete. Palms immediately gives it a tropical feeling.

        Cornwall was the first place I ever saw a palm tree, Dina. 🙂

    That brush bush is enormous! 🙂

    Lilac wine, so deep and heady! Beautiful!

  4. You just keep finding beautiful blues! 🙂

      Not difficult living in Cornwall! Although the blue sky is avoiding us today!

      1. Well, yes, true! 🙂

    I have never seen such a bush, not even in California.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Ah, but does it come from California? I need to check 😊

    What a delightful sight!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Very tropical looking 🙂

    never heard of this before, it is lovely. Might need to look out for one but there again suspect Cornwall is one of the few places it will grow here.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Not at all. I used to see one in Doncaster and that’s when we regularly had snowy winters, also they grow them at Powys castle. Maybe not as big as this one, but large shrub/small tree size.

    There doesn’t seem to be as many ceanothus around as there used to be?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Maybe they have fallen out of favour? Everyone seems to want an Amelanchier these days.

      1. Lucid Gypsy says:

        I’d have one if I had space 🙂
