|Gardeners clearing up leaves and things|
|the next image is the view from that doorway on the left looking back into the gardens|
|Looking towards the river Tamar - not a bad view aye!|
|Here's a link to Wikipedia about Cotehele|
|I have a thing about real fireplaces and love the smell of the wood burning|
|another fireplaces, how could I not stop for a pic|
|At this point, I thought I had already gone down to ground level,|
but was surprised to find I was suffering from confusion, lol ;)
|There were other beds set up, but on this occasion only took the picture of this one.|
|and Oh there were lots of floral displays about the place -|
When I mentioned it to one of the guides, I was told that all the flower
arrangements are refreshed regularly and all flowers grown in the Cotehele gardens
|This is where I nearly turned back to finish my visit,|
but decided to follow the pathway instead
So glad I did, because I came across this lovely lady, Lin, who was busy sketching.
Of course, I had to stop and have a chat about art and discovered that herself and friends
belong to an art group who get together at Cotehele.
If only I had more time, I would have dashed back to the car for my painting things.
As it is, I hope to be able to catch up with them another time,
something to look forward to.
Here's some more information about Cotehele (click link)
and especially about their Garland.
I may not have sketched there at the time,
but I did this when I got home, whilst the visit was still in my mind,
and from the photo ref to jog my memory
