The Lost Gardens of Heligan – Changing, Poppy Field and Giant

24 Jun

We visited the Lost Gardens of Heligan this morning.  The changing room for babies caught my eye!

Last year, in the gardens, there was a wonderfully moving commemoration of the start of World War 1. You can read about it here.  Thousands of poppies were planted for the event but, as is the way with poppies, they chose their own time to bloom and there were few around last year. This year they have bloomed in their thousands and make for a most moving spectacle. Click your way through the gallery and enjoy them as much as we did.

3   The Giant is always one of our favourites and the Live-Wires all love him. Wish they had been with us today.Here he is for them!

    I love the giant! I have a short story about a giant (Have a look, if you would like: https://ivaberanek.wordpress.com/2015/03/15/the-giant-suitcase/) I find them so inspiring. And the poppies must have been magical. It looks beautiful.
