Pinetum Park & Pine Lodge Gardens

      Wow! I've done it. First ever blog. Great instructions Sue (plus help from Lizzie whilst waiting for the rain to stop).

        Well, what a wonderful day out we had on Wednesday and we must be a lovely lot as the sun shone all day! Weren't we lucky considering the awful summer we've all been experiencing.
We met for coffee, a relaxing stroll round the beautiful gardens (want to live in the Japanese garden)  then lunch, then more coffee and chat.

     The Pinetum Park is a hidden gem in Cornwall and one of the most beautiful, tranquil gardens I have visited in the county. Highly recommended so please go and support this piece of paradise. Make sure you take your camera and dogs on leads are very welcome.

     Just a few photos from the day to whet your appetites.

A late July posting...

While I cool down after a spot of gardening, I thought I'd take the opportunity to post a few photos which Barbara took of last month's meeting...

We have a little jolly in August instead of meeting at the hall. This time we've chosen The Pinetum Park and Pine Lodge Gardens in St Austell. Armed with cameras and sketchbooks we want to gain some inspiration for a small body of work to show along side our existing projects. Hopefully we'll have a gorgeous sunny day like today and have some photos of the gardens to show you in the next post.

Thanks for reading,
