Choir-Babies, Tree and Trelissick

1   There were two beautiful choir babies with us today at The Suitcases singing session and it was a delight to watch them playing together (even if a bit of a distraction!)

2   This afternoon we went from thick fog at home to bright sunshine at Trelissick Gardens and saw this fascinating slice from a tree that was planted in 1840!

3   There were three special treats at Trelissick today – the terrace in front of the house has been opened to the public and the view down to the Carrick Roads will be wonderful on a clear day.

The Magnolia Denudata was absolutely stunning. The flowers are creamy white and perfect, not a hint of browning yet and the buds are furry and gorgeous!    It was also the Daffodil Exhibition, well over a hundred different varieties on show in the old stables. It pleased me to see that one of the horses kept there was named Sally!
