Wet Sundays can be lovely.

Here I am well wrapped up  and looking for signs of Spring. We had driven through the Roseland,and found a bit of sun at St Mawes so we dropped in to Trellissick on the way home.The river looked great from the King Harry Ferry.
The Winter berries are still so red and glorious and cheering when you have just seen Trump spouting off on TV.

We ended the afternoon at Trellisick House and Gardens. The house was shut but the gardens were beautiful,dripping with cold rain drops.
The river Fal makes its way to the sea.
Posing  by a pillar ha ha!
The wonderful hellebores were blooming,one of my favourite plants.
They are so delicate but come up in the last chilly throes of winter to give us cheer.
The camellias are out and the the bushes are bursting with green buds.
The waxey winter heliotropes at home in the damp foliage.

First snowdrops and a brave little primrose definite signs of Spring.
Sheltering in the rustic summer house.
This is a beautiful sculpture of a seal in the parc.
More snowdrops.
This tree is amazing,textures and gnarls ,very inspiring.

Memorial to the Copeland family who lived here,the property is now National Trust.
Well found our signs of spring and felt refreshed by our trip.We really needed to get away from the ghastly news coming from our country and the USA. Rumblings of facism everwhere . Nature is the only true solace although a good red wine comes in a close second.
We left the shy denizens of the park to their doings.
Secrets!!

  2. Here in Nashville TN we are not doing to much looking for spring....it has made its appearance all on its own. Silly ground hog told us that we would have 6 more weeks of winter...and yet I have not seen the first 6 weeks of winter and I wanted SNOW!
