If you’ve got the time and the inclination a little pattern making is quite therapeutic – if you can keep the wind and cats away! We did manage these in between attacks by both and will definitely be doing more – watch this space.
Avebury… one of my favourite places to visit, since watching the childrens television series ‘Children of the Stones’ in a decade not too long ago! I’ve been fascinated by it, the largest stone circle in the world. It’s a magical place and has an atmosphere that’s hard to describe. My favourite time of year to visit is during the winter when it’s possible to wander round and see relatively few other visitors – but still, you can go in the middle of summer and take some people free shots (not sheep free though).
Cornish gardens are truly amazing, full of rare and unusual plants (for the rest of the UK anyway) basking in the Gulf Stream, mild (sometimes) but wet winters result in my favourite type of garden - wooded valleys with pockets of bamboo, tree ferns and gunnera meandering down to perfect Cornish beaches and no I’m not working for the Cornwall Tourist Board! and just a word to the wise, a National trust card will save you lots of money in Cornwall.
Another lovely holiday in Cornwall with great friends – lots of time spent on or around the water with a smattering of lovely Cornish gardens, cream teas and beaches, bliss. The only fly in the ointment – no pasty, how I went to Cornwall and didn’t eat a Cornish Pasty is a mystery! Still lots and lots of photos to share, starting with a few Cornish birds
