Flowers at Lost Gardens of Heligan.

So February has passed away after storms, rain and flooding but, even so, there was colour and flowers to be found in Cornwall.

Quite a few camellia styled bushes about.

Mostly have a touch of pink about them. A camellia in my garden quickly drops the lovely flowers to the ground. Recent strong winds haven't helped.

The garden has a lovely position overlooking the river Fowey. Nice place for a traditional Cream Tea - when the weather has improved, of course.

Oh yes, and this orchid from the warmth of our dining room. I think it looks like some kind of exotic creature or, there again perhaps not. But, whatever, thanks for looking at this post and the photos.
