The Lost Gardens of Heligan In July :16 Photos
We wanted a bit of a walk and, as we were quite near the Lost Gardens of Heligan, we decided to have a quick(ish) look round. We probably stayed longer than intended but with the gardens stretching over 200 acres it's tempting to keep on walking.
We saw a few animals. I love shire horses and the one above was off with a swish of his tail. The young sheep though was in a bashful mood trying to hide under the fence.
We headed to the walled flower garden.
Quite a few flowers about. Lots of sweet peas with the old greenhouse in the background.
The walled gardens are all neat and tidy.
A few poppies ...
... and into the sundial walled garden.
There are a few seats in the sundial garden amongst the shrubs and flowers.
We then moved onto the jungle and lost valley area, which is completely different.
Then back to some fine old trees.
And finally a photo that most visitors snap.
We passed the old horse drawn caravan with photos and details of the Heligan Farm on our way to the exit.
We often dip into the Heligan's gardens as we have annual passes. I have mentioned the gardens a few times on the blog, for example :
