Glendurgan Gardens, Bluebells and A Maze

04 May

It’s Bluebell time and I had heard that the Bluebells in the Gardens of Glendurgan are stunning so off we went. I just have to say here, for those who know about my hip replacement, that to set off without a stick, to be able to stomp about wherever I want, to walk right down the valley to the beach and back makes me so very happy! Please enjoy the walk with us. Click on any photo for the caption and an enlargement.

      Fabulous! Please tell your Mum thank you. Glendurgan is looking particularly beautiful this year. I want to get to Enys soon to see their Bluebells too. 🙂

      The gardens seem particularly beautiful this year, perhaps because I am able to walk further and with more joy this year! Thank you for calling in. All the best to you 🙂

    I’m so glad you are able to enjoy more walking again. Spring flowers are just amazing, I always feel so much joy when I look at a carpet of bluebells! Sharon x

      Thank you, Sharon. It is indeed a joy 0 and when Hip no 2 is done in September, I really will be dancing again! 🙂

    I remember that place, walking unaided sans crutches seven weeks post-op! I never looked back. I enjoyed my virtual walk through Glendurgan Gardens with you today. I am reminded to go visit the bluebells in a local Forest park.

      Although the left hip begins to complain, iy doesn’t dull my delight in being so much fitter. I’m glad you never looked back and that you totally get my sense of achievement! 🙂

        I had Elly my daughter home for six weeks post op, so I I had a deadline to get to independence. It worked for me. I can still remember the sunday morning that I took my first steps sans crutches. I had tested myself in the bedroom, then came to the living room where Elly & SIL had their noses in tablets. I placed my crutches against the wall, turned, coughtd and walked towards them. You would think I was a child taking my first steps. they both had tears running down their cheeks. May the second surgery & recovery go smoothly and quickly for you.
