Bluebell spectacle

 A few evenings this week I've taken one of my favourite walks down to the creek at Percuil. The hedgerows are blossoming with red campions, stitchwort, buttercups, Queen Anne's lace, and of course, bluebells.

Angelica was showing some of her paintings in an exhibition at Enys House near Penryn over the weekend, so on Monday a group of us went over to see the exhibition and the gardens. 
 Enys House is undergoing major restoration, and at the moment is an empty two-storey shell with exposed lathe and plaster walls, peeling paintwork, wooden beams and old layers of mottled and scratched plaster.

It was quite fascinating to see the different layers of colours and texture on the walls, which in places were a work of art in themselves....
The gardens at Enys are considered to be the oldest in Cornwall, and just now the bluebells in Parc Lye  (believed to be undisturbed since ancient times) are a sight to behold....


  1. What a wonderful walk you had ans what lovely garden this Enys House has, this season gifts us such wonders !

    Wishing you a great remainder of your week,
    dearest Christine,

  2. Lovely English bluebells, we only get the Spanish thugs here.

  3. I have never seen bluebells in person so I am in awe of yours. How lovely it all sounds and I would want to gaze at the walls in Enys House for hours. As an artist they would inspire me.
