Weekly Photo Challenge – Time

09 Feb

The beautiful Mud Maid in The Lost Gardens of Heligan, near Mevagissey in Cornwall, has been there for a long time already and will be there for a very long time to come. She is the work of Cornish sculptors Sue Hill and Pete Hill and is a favourite for our Grandchildren to visit. They love the Giant too. For others in this Challenge, click this link.

    What an interesting choice of motive. This statue looks very old and like something out of a fairy tale. Really nice!

      There is a lovely book that tells the magical tale of how the Gardens came to be lost and found and restored to beauty once again. The Mud Maid by Sandra Horn and Karen Popham. I think the Mud Maid is in fact only about 10 years old!
