A look back at the sixth year of our life in Cornwall. Another year full of unexpected events and very little travelling, but still the beauty of this county continues to shine. So please come with me and take a look at 2022.
In April I drove down to Surrey to see my daughter and her family and join in with the celebrations of my granddaughter who turned 18. It was a lovely time and I was very pleased to fit in a trip to my beloved RHS Wisley Gardens as well.
And of course April is my favourite month as this is when my spring bulbs, including the Tulips, begin to flower in earnest.
I hope you will join me in my Cornish adventures this year.

A beautiful series, Jude. Those starlings! And your lovely flowers are a delight. Wishing you a wonderful year ahead!
Thanks Jane. Not so many starlings this year.
Wow 2022 was quite an Adventurous year for you and I hope your Cornish adventures will continue to be incredible even this year. Beautiful pictures of the flowers especially 🔥💓💓
Have a great week
So very beautiful Jude – obviously Cornwall agrees with you! I’d be a bit cranky waiting for my car for a month but you have so many beautiful places to walk I suppose it was a gift in disguise! Lovely flowers as always and your rainbow image is spectacular. And must note, Mousehole….bad name….beautiful spot!!!
I was more than cranky Tina, I was terribly anxious as I didn’t even know if it could be fixed and at what cost. A car is essential where we live. And Mousehole is actually pronounced Mowzel so not so bad 😉 though like a lot of places in Cornwall the houses are mostly holiday homes or lets.
Aah Cornwall . My favourite county Jude with all it’s pros and cons 😉 A splendid round up of your year in photos . Good to hear your car did get fixed and you managed a couple of trips away . Let 2023 be a good one for you Jude !
Gosh, I really hope so Poppy. Struggling to get anyone to sort out our leaks though, it seems builders here are either ‘too busy’ and ‘not taking on any more work’ or uninterested.
That seems a common ‘conversation’ with a couple of friends around here too Jude. Leaks can be such a problem we had a burst header tank pipe during the beast from the east in 2018 my word … Victorian lath plaster ceilings down plus ensuing flood damage not good . It took 6 months to put right .
Wishing you a speedier result !
Friday 13th has struck- car break-down (again).
Oh no 😦 Sorry to hear that Jude . No fun stuck without transport . Here’s wishing a speedy recovery / solution x
What a beautiful year in photos, Jude. I love your image of the rainbow and that startlingly beautiful sky in December. All the best to you in 2023!
A beautiful gallery, Jude! I especially like the rainbow in the St Ives image, and the beautiful light in the image below it.
Thanks John. The light was amazing in December.
Excellent. Garden House and stone wall are just a couple of my faves.
The Garden House is a fantastic garden. Famous for snowdrops too so I might try and get there if we get a decent day.
January’s photo of the starlings are amazing and April’s flowers (your own?) are beautiful. Oh, and the sunset in May – wow! June and July’s landscapes are simply gorgeous. And your glass of Sauvignon Blanc just reminded me I should walk over to our fridge … it’s Friday afternoon after all 🙃. Such lovely photos Jude!
Thanks Corna. Yes the spring flowers are all mine, I am a bit of a fanatic when it comes to buying spring bulbs. Quite excited already to see this year’s bulbs coming up.
Beautiful. Seeing photos from you of your surroundings around the year is a great way to see the best in Cornwall.
Every one of these images is so beautiful. Even without a lot of travel you managed to fit a lot into your year. Looking forward to seeing what 2023 brings you.
Hopefully a few more trips away, though I haven’t booked anything yet.
