Garden Colour, Visiting and Truro

1    The curved herb wall is full of tiny bulbs which are bursting with Spring colour. The crocus which has died and fallen from its stem has the most vibrant and wonderful colours.

They looked after my Dad when he first moved to Cornwall in 1953, took me in for a holiday when I was 14. My family had moved North for a brief time and I was so desperately unhappy to have been taken away from Cornwall and they had me, a tricky teenager, to stay for two weeks! They have been such lovely loyal friends for such a long time.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details

Walking around Hampstead Heath we came across an almost still pond with beautiful reflections. At the far end I could see logs mirrored in the water, looking like a gaping mouth.

Click on the first photo and follow the slide show through as I take you closer and closer to the detail.
