a tapestry of colours

Usually the summer months find us close to home, but because this year we have been close to home since March, we have taken the opportunity to visit one or two gardens as they have opened. Having to book a slot means the numbers are down and anyway most folk coming to Cornwall in the school holidays head for the beach.

Lanhydrock is one of my favourite gardens in the spring as their Magnolia trees are spectacular. You might say exuberant, but we’ll save that word for some of the wonderful crowded and tangled herbaceous borders that we found in August.

A rich tapestry of plants are growing along the long border at the back of the garden near the pretty thatched cottage, making every step a joy in the comfortable warmth of a late summer’s day.
