Potager Garden, Cornflower and Three Choirs on a Ferry

09 Jun

1  We went to the beautiful Potager Garden, Constantine, to meet a friend, to play and to have lunch. We wandered all over the place exploring, noting landmarks so that we could find our way back and hunting dragons. It’s a magical place for children (and their adults!)

Lunch was absolutely delicious, as always. Lots of the food is grown right there in the gardens. All the food is cooked freshly on the premises and is a treat for the eyes as well as for the taste buds!

3  This evening I’ve been to sing with the Three Choirs on a Ferry. All three of Claire Ingleheart’s choirs, about 100 of us, sang first in the courtyard in Trelissick Gardens and then we all, including our audience of about 200, walked down the hill to the King Harry Ferry where the choirs went on board, the audience on the slip way and we sang for an hour and were much appreciated by the friendly crowd which included KJ and Lucy, which was really lovely for me. Just as we finished we were all delighted to hear the beautiful sound of a pair of owls hooting to each other.

    Finally home and catching up with everything. Potager on the list but too many things to do in 12 days! next time. Watched KHF concert but couldn’t pick you or Sue out, too dark. Was that a GIANT WAVE for the Ferriers that I saw?

      Yes, Potager must be on your list for next time. I really can’t recommend it highly enough! As you walk through the entrance, the world lifts from your shoulders and you are relaxed !
      And, yes! That was a massive cheer for the Ferrymen who stayed on late and then, at the end of the concert even put on a special go-home ferry for those who had come from the Roseland side! Brilliant! 🙂

    Something I really miss about England is the gardens. Just to walk through them is an absolute tonic.

      I agree. Heligan is next on our plan. You do have very beautiful coastline though! 🙂

    I look forward to your posts everyday – what a great thing you do – finding wonderful things in your life to share with the rest of us – and you always have great stories and explanations

    I particularly like the way you referred to “children and their adults”

      So glad you are enjoying my three things. I really enjoy choosing three things every day to write about. Thank you for your lovely comments. 🙂
