Pinetum Gardens, Reflections and Robert Graves

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!

There is so much more to see………….

Trelissick Walk on a Windy Winter Day

After a lovely chatty lunch in the cafe with a dear friend, a walk around the gardens at Trelissick in between the very heavy showers was just the thing.

Boxing Day Blooms

A wild and wet day in the garden with a brief respite for me to take some photos of the bits of colour still in the garden.




The overflowing Sailors’ Barometer indicates the impending downpour.

Hiding, Twirling and Painted Biscuits 

We’ve had a delightful day with LiveWire B, playing hide and seek, dancing around the garden at the garden centre and making painted  tree biscuits for tomorrow’s party at the Home School group.

Breakfast, Bouquet and A Biscuit

I tried a new recipe for breakfast pancakes this morning – Sweet Potato Pancakes with Blueberries.

There aren’t too many flowers left in the garden but I managed to pick a lovely small bouquet for the hall.

Yesterday in the shop in Trelissick, I saw this delightful biscuit which I knew would appeal to my sister-in-law, V.

One of the Secrets of Drawing from Nature……..

I love Autumn! The colours are so beautiful and even in a cold wind, a walk around Trelissick gave us so many beautiful moments. Click on any photo to share our colourful afternoon and to read the tale about ‘drawing from nature.’

Colour in the Garden on November 1st 2017

We are delighted that there is so much colour in the garden still, some just one flower on the plant, some a bit ragged but still – lots of colour, twenty eight different plants in flower! I cannot remember all the names so please feel free to help me out!
