We hadn't been for a while, so thought a visit to Cornwall's Lost Gardens of Heligan was due.
As we walked I snapped a few photos to give a flavour of the gardens. Apples are beginning to show above and below vegetables are growing (or will grow) under glass.
An abundance of flowers in the next few photos.
A couple of water lilies ...
... and back to other flowers.
Moving into the Sundial Garden with its original red brick walls.
Heligan isn't just flowers the various gardens stretch over 200 acres so there is plenty of open space
Moving on to the Lost Valley and the Jungle. The leaves get a lot bigger!
We sat in the cool for a while by a pond.
A robin came to say hello by the water. Some say the birds can be messengers from beyond the grave. A bit fanciful, no doubt, but it would have been my mother's birthday - and she loved robins.
More large leaves as we make our way towards the exit homeward bound.
That's all for The Lost Gardens of Heligan for today: sometimes described as 200 acres of garden history, mystery and, perhaps, romance.
I'll finish off today's post with a few flowers from my own garden.
Thanks for visiting my blog. All good wishes ~ Mike.
