The Lost Gardens

05 Aug

We’ve had the best last day with the LIveWires and Daughter No2 in The Lost Gardens of Heligan, exploring areas we hadn’t visited before and generally having fun. The rain wasn’t a problem at all as we were all wearing the right clothes!  Join us in the gallery.

    Woah, now that’s how to do an insect hotel! The sleeping mud maid is pure magic. Lulu x

      I agree! A 5* hotel indeed! I’ll pass your comment about the lovely Mud Maid on to the artist who just happens to be our neighbour. 🙂

    I’ve never been in those gardens, it looks fantastic, I really need to go there, when in Cornwall.

      I think you’d love them Ute, so much to discover and such a range of plants. You need the whole day if you can manage it. 🙂

        I like that word ‘manage’.
        I probably would have used ‘struggle to do it’. 😉
