2   This Tree Peony that we found in a nursery in The Lizard has flowers of about 6″ across- quite remarkable and very beautiful.

3   Porthleven was a windy spot this afternoon but the sea in the harbour was such a beautiful colour.  It was less windy by the beach but it was still deserted.

    Fabulous tree peony – they look so exotic – beach looks almost tropical – good job we can’t see the temperature!

      You’re right – the wind was bitter – again! 🙂

    A deserted beach makes you think you own it … at least I do when I see one 😉

      I know exactly what you mean! I love to put my footprints where no-one else has trod! 🙂
