Trelissick Garden, Cafe and Gallery

27 Mar

1   The sun was shining this morning so  off we went to one of our favourite gardens, Trelissick, a National Trust property.  As well as daffodils all over the grounds , the annual Daffodil Exhibition was happening – what a joy! The following gallery will take you around the gardens and into the old stable block where the daffodils were on display.  Click on any photo for an enlargement.

2    A hot drink was called for after a bitterly cold walk so off to the cafe where the room was in the process of being decorated with beautiful stencils of purple Wisteria.

3   After that to the Gallery which is always full of the most beautiful things. Today was no exception! The rope coil on the floor used to hoist heavy paintings was one of the beautiful things to attract my attention.

    Beautiful post. The sheep sculpture looks good – nicely textured.

    God Almighty, the beauty in that white tree… Sally, you capture such beauty. I can imagine you, suddenly I now do, you walking about with your camera to hand. Truly beautiful, Sally. You can’t imagine how I love to log in and visit your pages. I’m a little jealous, I do admit, that my days are consumed in an office, but even though I’m not where you are, I do smile. You “take me away”.

      I am so delighted that my blog gives you such delight! I do always have my camera handy and, actually, I drive walking companions crackers as I keep stopping to take a photo. Funnily enough, others around me are starting to see the beauty too and point out something I may have missed!

      I understand your envy but I did do my time! My time was not in an office but in the classroom with my beloved teenagers!

      All the best to you and yours 🙂

        Ah yes, of course, Sally – I forgot, you did do your time 🙂 We all must do our time…

      They are remarkable sculptures aren’t they? I love the way LM uses both the polished form of the stone and the rough original. It’s amazing how he sees the beauty of the creature in the rough stone and then sculpts it out. I so wish I could afford to have one myself!

      Love to you , Nia. 🙂
