In my neighbourhood is a tag I have used for posting about things and places around me. Usually the lanes and the hill. Anything within walking distance. Which includes a pair of granite and whitewashed Cornish cottages. Nothing unusual about that you may say, not in Cornwall, where they are two a penny, but what catches my eye about these cottages are the enormous fuchsia hedges. Usually I am driving past on my way in and out of the lane to join the main road and at this time of the year I always notice the amazing fuchsia hedges and the hydrangeas.
On Saturday I took a walk down to take some photographs, Megan of Harebells and Maples was interested in seeing what a large fuchsia hedge looks like. It’s not an easy site to photograph as it is mostly in shadow, but hopefully you’ll get some idea of how beautiful it looks.

And I always think hydrangeas look so good in September when the colours fade and begin to change colour to autumnal shades of red, brown or green.
And across the lane by a small stream someone has scattered some wildflower seeds.
Perfect for the pollinators
