This Sunday the sun was out and we drove to Trellisick Gardens which are very near us ,a National Trust Property we love to visit it in all seasons. Someone has had a lovely idea to put a bow on the romantic tower that always reminds me of Rapunzel !
Without their leaves the amazing shape and texture of the trees we could see was wonderful.This isjust one of many gnarled and twisted examples.
Have you ever read The Secret Garden ? Could this be it? What mystery lies behind the green door? I love doors , it must be pschological ,always searching for what is hidden.
Steve got snapping with his Blackberry and caught me looking at the rusty brown dead heads of this plant.
The Sensory Garden did not have many scents to share at this time of the Year ! Only the Rosemary was fragrant.
The shapes of some of the ancient trees remind me of Rackham ,I can imagine a willowy fairy hiding here!
I couldn't resist a bit of tree hugging,no one was looking!
The trees,the river shining in the afternoon sun and a kind of peace that only winter brings is very good for the soul!
It was a great walk and then we had a pot of Earl Grey tea at exactly 3pm how English is that and ginger cake too! Thanks to Steve for the photos,I left my camera behind that day!
