What is Cornwall in colours all about?
Simple really: the colours of the land, the sea and the sky. The yellows of the gorse, the oranges of the lichens, the greys of the granite and the gulls, the soft pinks of sea thrift and daisies, the rusty-red of autumn bracken, the purples of wild foxgloves and late summer heather, golden sandy bays and the blues and greens of the sea.
When we moved to Cornwall in 2016 we found the part we were most attracted to is practically the end of the county and indeed country, West Penwith is pretty much as it was hundreds, if not thousands of years ago, give or take the mining industry. Ancient Cornish hedges (never walls or hedgerows), pasture land, narrow lanes, virtually surrounded by water and very few towns. Mostly a string of hamlets along the remote roads. We now live on the edge of this peninsula and it often feels as though we are living in a different world.
I hope you will join me in this new adventure where I shall showcase the beauty of this county in photos, walks, gardens and all things Cornish.
love from Jude (Heyjude) ❤ ❤

Jude … I didn’t realize you had a second blog. 🙂
I actually have three, but one (flowers and gardens) is dormant for now as I haven’t been anywhere to blog about!
Wonderful …. I have an idea for us to collaborate. …. My words your photos. Will email you later … Look at my current post
Love your blog and wholeheartedly agree on the vast and beautiful colors of nature. So inspiring and nurturing.
Funny, I’m not a “TV” watcher but am in the midst of the Poldark series which I believe is the same location where you are. Lucky you, to be so remote and away from all the current goings on in the world. I often wish I could relocate to an even slower paced, sans tech world. Sounds like you may have found it. 🙂
It is definitely a slower pace of life down here! Though extremely crowded during the school holidays so not as peaceful as you imagine. Fortunately we live slightly inland from the coast.
Heyjude, just started looking around your blog, we love Cornwall, it is a beautiful and dramatic County. The colours of the land and sea are stunning. We are heading down there for a week in April and 2 weeks in May so very excited about that. 😊 Will take a look at your travel blog too.
