Pinetum Gardens, Reflections and Robert Graves

19 Jan

We discovered a delightful garden, Pinetum Gardens in St Austell, today. We have been in many times to the Nursery and to see the Snowdrops at this time of year but never in to the whole gardens and it was a real pleasure, despite the heavy shower!  I loved both the Winter Garden and the Japanese garden and the poem which we found on display.



Poetry is a feature of the gardens and there is even a special little poetry writing hut with some lovely poems written by visitors and with these words from one of the owners.

I had never read this quirky little poem by Robert Graves before and I love it!

    a soul sanctuary, it’s in our nature. Good shtufffs. So much thought, yet the genius lays in the simplicity. Time and nature looks after the rest. Nature, I think, has all the answers to our personal problems if not the global turmoil. Such place should be in our backyards.

    Cheers on the new camera. I like my Nikon too. Mine gets knocked around, and has yet to fail me. You will love it, though not as much as you do Mr.S, but close.

      I think you would love the gardens, so much peace, so much food for the soul. I am already loving my new camera… 🙂

      You would love it, Patti, lots of different ‘rooms’ and all very individual with many plants labelled and with 67 ancient award winning trees – generally a delight. The cafe was fine too, simple home made and tasty food. Next time ……… 🙂
