Stillness, Water Cooler and Magnolia Gardens

The Penryn River was so still this morning – utterly beautiful.

After singing we all stopped in at The Muddy Beach cafe. This is the water cooler.

On my way home, I stopped off at Burncoose Nursery to have a walk around their beautiful grounds. It was stunning! Every corner turned revealed another breath taking sight. Please join me on my walk.Click on any photo for the caption and detail.

Violets, Burncoose Gardens and Pink Shoelaces!

Ten feet up in the air, in the fork of two moss covered branches, I noticed Violets growing. Aren’t they lovely?

This afternoon we walked around the gardens of a local nursery, Burncoose, where the Magnolias are magnificent and the Rhododendrons truly spectacular. Join us on our walk in their extensive grounds.

The rain gully

My choice of poem for you today is the lyrics from a song we heard on BBC Radio 2, Pink Shoelaces, by Dodie Stevens, as we were driving home from the gardens. Do have a listen and the lyrics are embedded in the video. It is from 1959, neither of us had heard it before but it was so catchy we ended up singing at the tops of our voices in the car. Try joining in – it is very therapeutic!
