Choir-Babies, Tree and Trelissick

13 Mar

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!

    The flowers on the tree are so beautiful. And the bright yellow daffodils. I look at your photos and see the promise of spring.
