Well hello there garden hounds! I'm technically on holiday but couldn't resist brining you a glimpse of the garden delights that I've encountered this week on holiday in Cornwall. Photo wise it's a mixed bag with shots from The Lost Garden if Heligan and a few from St Michael's Mount - this morning we head to The Eden Project so you just know that my camera battery is fully charged in anticipation!

What a location for a succulent plant sale, it's as if they knew I was en route...

There's something about the boats moored in the background that just adds a different element to this table of succulents for sale...

Over in The Lost Gardens of Heligan I spied something which reminded me of lovely Victoria, who had taken the time to email over a lost of recommended ' things to do in Cornwall' before we left. We spied some 'Honestly' in Furzey Gardens a few weeks back one rainy afternoon. Seeing these, again on a rainy day, made me think that she was somehow there with us.

This particular greenhouse was marked 'No entry', so I stealthed it from outside, admiring the dried flowers.

Apologies that there aren't more 'wowsers' shots this week but I'm winging it avec my mac and to be honest I miss the joys of my 'big pooter' and photo editing! Thanks to everyone who joined in last week, some faves include: Em's Nan's Garden, the lush photos from Emma's Lyme Organery, a look back at Jenni's first year in her new home, Sheffield Botanical Gardens and a look at Killerton Gardens.
