1 I visited Enys gardens with friends for the Bluebell Festival this afternoon and the bluebells were just beautiful. Enys is considered to be the oldest garden in Cornwall and is noted in the 1709 edition of Camden’s Magna Britannia for its fine gardens. The bluebell meadow is believed to have been there undisturbed since ancient times.
2 The gardens are extensive and lovely with not just bluebells but rhododendrons and tulips in flower too. This gate led out of the walled garden and we were intrigued by the ghostly looking face to the right of the gate.
3 The house was open and we could see all the restoration needs – a fabulous old building with the servant bells in each room and the indicator bell box in the butler’s pantry.
