"Caer" to join me.........

......for a stroll around Caerhays Estate?

Apparently the garden is about two weeks off being at it's very best!
Well I must say I was so drunk taking in the camelias, magnolias and rhodies that were already magnificent I don't think I could have coped with much more splendour in one afternoon.













Home again with Cornish spoils!
MIL's garden has almost as many Camelias as Caerhays and so the car was filled to the brim with them as we left. I have filled jugs, vases, bottles and mugs.......
When we arrived home an Australian parcel was awaiting adorned with flora from another continent, how amazing!


Thank you so much for your lovely birthday wishes ~ hope you are enjoying a sunny weekend wherever you are in the world,
love Sarah

  2. What a glorious feast for the eyes your blog is! Caerhays is one of those magical places that is firmly entrenched in my memory of childhood Cornwall. I first went when I was 12 years old and remember so clearly, picking up skeleton Magnolia leaves to take home. We returned a few years ago to collect shells on the beach below.

  3. We're off to Cornwall for a week during the Summer hols - so although the magnolias, etc won't be around the garden and property is certainly one for the must go and see list. Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos.

  12. Lovely pictures! I wish I could see all the blooms in person. We have still another two months before we see daffodils and tulips. Spring comes very late in Chicago.

    Happy belated birthday!

    XO,
