Scrumping, Hugging and A Painting

23 Sep

After a delightful walk through the gardens with dear friends, we arrived at the old apple orchard in Trelissick.  This orchard used to be known as the  ‘fruit garden of Cornwall’ and contains 70 different varieties, almost all Cornish. There were so many windfalls and we tasted a few, leaving the rest for the squirrels. My favourite to taste was Collogget Pippin, crisp and juicy. We weren’t really scrumping but told tales of doing so many years ago! Click on the red link to find out more.

Tree hugging was also on our tour. All four of us couldn’t quite link up, needing a LiveWire to fill the gap but, sadly,  none of us had one with us. 

In the garden centre section of the shop there were beautifully painted signs.

    You could re-create the flowers on that sign the next time you make focaccia art!

      That’s an idea! I’m hoping to try sunflowers next time…. 🙂

      Yes, we had some laughs remembering some dodgy moments! The best blackberry and apple crumble was with free blackberries and scrumped apples. 🙂

    You carry birdseed in your pocket or was it chicken feed……..anyhoot regardless, but you don’t keep a spare live-wire in your pocket, huh really.

      Oh, if only! We haven’t seen them for many weeks and the little ones in Barcelona, not for two years.
