A Few Bits and Bobs of My Week in Cornwall
Today a few bits and bobs from my week in Cornwall.
In our garden there is a single flower on our camellia bush, hidden amongst the leaves. More flowers will no doubt follow.
The camellia must be about six feet high now and is a bit special to me because this is Toby's bush. Toby was our favourite ever dog. That's him in the photo above, a border collie.
When we buried him we bought a small camellia bush to mark his grave and passing. We always refer to this as 'Toby's Bush'. So he is never forgotten.
I suppose one of the favourite visitors to our garden are the robins. There is one who is especially friendly and seems to follow me if I do some work in the garden. I know it's insects or worms he's after, but he's good company.
A while back I mentioned our 30 year old
Jade Money Plant. It still has a few flowers.
A few more photos for today. The first is the path leading to Cornwall's Eden Project. This shows the If you believe ... caption.
The Eden Project was created from an old china clay pit. At the time, who would have believed that this would become a garden which is visited by people from all over the world. It also has the world's largest indoor rainforest! I guess if you believe most things are possible.
A few early daffodils seen in the woods at Cornwall's Lost Gardens of Heligan, voted UK's top visitor garden.
And a seagull! Tuck any food, take-aways, ice creams from view when he's about.
I think he looks quite majestic and I saw him sitting by the bus station in Truro.
Finally, no week would be complete in Cornwall without at least one walk along a beach.
A dull day but we had a walk along the Esplanade in Fowey and then into the town. There are pleasant views from the Esplanade, as it...
