Early Morning Garden, Sailing and Roses

1   I was up long before the rest of the house this morning and, inspired by one of HH’s poems, went out to photograph the garden at 6 am with the early morning sun giving everything a special glow.

3   At lunchtime we sat in the little park that surrounds the Killigrew Monument about which you can find some entertaining history here. The whole place is smothered in beautiful climbing roses and smells quite delicious. At the end of the day, Gyllyngvase Beach and the water were full of happy people.
