Cornwall 2012 – Trebah Gardens

Trebah Gardens is a magical place, and dogs are welcome.

Our first task was write some postcards. Hurray for address books on phones!

Dr Bones and Boots set off down the valley.

At the bottom of the valley, the garden reaches a beach. The beach was used to rehearse the D-Day landings, it was sobering to remember the men who gave their lives.

The view back up the garden…

…offers a view of the hydrangeas.

Many of them had already turned, but there were still plenty of flowers.

The gunnera had started to collapse, but were still glorious…

…in their prehistoric splendour.

It really was like wandering…

…in a lost world.
