Garden Bunting and Wild Week 3

What lovely amazing weather we’ve been having! All the better for getting out in the garden, and of course; if I’m spending more time out there, it made me realise how much I needed to renew the garden bunting!

A Day Out To – The South West Coast Path

The rules have changed and we can finally head out in the car again, so we’re driving for a walk along a section of the South West Coast Path!

Written during Lockdown May 2020

Deciding to go a little further away, to make a change from the local park, and a wander to the supermarket, we drove to nearby Perranporth for a much needed dose of sea air!

This last weekend has been beautiful, with sunny skies and temperatures bordering on (dare I say it?) warm! We decided it was the perfect time to visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan!

In comparison this time last year; we were facing the Beast From the East, and hiding away from the cold and snow!

The joy of this particular National Trust garden being quite close by; is that we can just get in the car and be there a few minutes later! It’s definitely something that before we had membership this year, we were completely unaware of!
