Magnolias, Rhododendrons and Azaleas

21 Apr

A good friend told us of the glory of a nearby garden and last Saturday we took our visiting Grandchildren for an adventure along the paths, by the pond and through the bamboo groves all the while surrounded by the amazingly beautiful display of blossom on the Magnolia trees, the Rhododendrons and the Azaleas. Click on any photo for an enlargement and if you are local to me, go along to Burncoose Nurseries, on the Redruth to Falmouth road Β and visit their spectacular garden.

    You must be feeling better…and what better way to test yourself…with a lovely walk…
    I planted two Rhododendrons last year…and they have bloomed already…I hope they thrive…so pretty!

    Sally, thanks so much for your encouragement during my daughter’s loss of her friend Nina. I haven’t been posting much because… well, you know.

    I love rhododendrons. I went to Block Island, just off the coast of Delaware, I think…anyway, the rho’s were in their last throes of bloom. They looked like weathered silk and I told my then-husband they seemed like the inside of my grandma’s purse. There is something timeless about them…they seem to carry the souls of larger things. Thanks so much. Amy

      I love your description of the weathered silk – that is just what they look like, still very beautiful in their decay. I love the idea too that they could carry the souls of greater things….
      My love to you and yours as you try to come to terms with your sad loss. x

      It’s big enough to. We only covered half of it as the Grandchildren’s little legs had had enough. There’s no cafe either which is good! Next time we’ll take a picnic and sit in one of the beautiful little glades. No-one else seems to know about it either. We met no-one else on our wanders. πŸ™‚
