June seemed to appear suddenly this year, without warning. With June came the first meteorological day of summer – in fact I think we tiptoed into summer this year from the long spring days that lingered still fresh and new in our minds. The sea that frames our lives looks impossibly blue these days – one day soon we must walk down to the water’s edge again…… but not yet, not until I’ve finished painting! Still wouldn’t it be nice to linger over breakfast on the lawn gazing at St Michael’s Mount while planning the day stretching ahead around the Cornish coast?

This weekend I managed to race across our lawn just in time to catch these two pictures of a gorgeous sunset over Mounts Bay as the sun sank behind St Michael’s Mount. I always love the effect that the palms that edge our lawn make silhouetted in the dusk and so i thought i would share it in a tiny blog tonight Continue reading “A moment of magic” »
This morning is just too beautiful not to share and so I’m putting a quick mini blog up just of the view. I took this snap from my kitchen this morning looking down over the gardens to St Michaels Mount with the tide right out by the look of it too.
St Michael’s Mount will be open this morning with Tuesday at 1100am. and again at 2.00p.m. From the 15th of March it will open from 10.30 – 5.00 daily (except Saturdays) It looks so lovely out there I wish I could go. Continue reading “This morning in Cornwall” »

But this week we had such a lovely day catching up with our garden jobs I took a few snaps and here we are ready to go! Continue reading “November in a Cornish Garden” »
