Trelissick Garden in Summer

No need for directions, we’ve been here many times before, so simply enjoy a pictorial summer stroll through this lovely garden with me on a sunny and warm afternoon in August.

Prolific Apple tree and Tower (entrance to the gardens)

Plenty of late flowering summer perennials including a lovely yellow Helenium, Dahlia (Trelissick Purple), Helianthus, Japanese Anemones, Daylilies, Persicaria ‘Red Dragon‘ and a pretty dark red Potentilla ‘Monarch’s Velvet‘.

View from the terrace over the Fal estuary and Carrick Roads

Pollinators are busy in the flowers, buzzy bees and fluttering butterflies enjoying the late warmth.

And there are plenty of benches and seats for you to stop and rest and relax and enjoy the views, in sun and in shade.

No time for cake today for me, but I can recommend the Cream teas with proper Cornish clotted cream and a dollop of jam from the Crofters café if you seek refreshment.

    Another lovely visit tooth’s garden. It’s very picturesque. Obviously one of your “happy places”, Jude.

    1. Heyjude says:

      It is one of the easier ones to get to though not the closest, but I like the estuary views.

  3. Chloris says:

    I haven’t been for years but Trelissick is another favourite. Lovely collages.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Chloris 🙂

  4. It’s such a pretty garden, and isn’t it thoughtful to have so many places where you can sit and rest, and admire?

    1. Heyjude says:

      I do like it when I can find a seat to simply relax or even read.

      1. I like the idea of sitting in a beautiful garden like this and reading. 🙂 I could even pretend that it was my own garden.
