Chimney, Tree and Seed Packets

09 Oct

Driving from the re-cycling centre to the nursery to find a small evergreen tree for the front garden, we saw Killifreth Mine chimney in the distance. It is the only tall slender chimney of this shape in all the industrial leftovers of tin mining in Cornwall. It is truly beautiful.For more information look back at an earlier post

On our drive, we spotted a lone tree in a field.

We found the little tree we were looking for but I was more taken with some really lovely seed packets from Kew Gardens.

    The seed packets are truly beautiful, though I do not want any more borage or hemp agrimony in my garden! Which nursery?

      I agree about not needing any more of either plant! I just loved the artwork. They, and many more, are in Chacewater garden centre. 😊

    Killifreth Mine chimney….. at least it lives, if nothing more as a symbol of the past. Note I did not say relic from the past.

    Aye, a stoic sentry in the middle of the field. There are few standing these days. I say save a tree, murder a chainsaw.
