Cornwall in April **~**

We had a wonderful time in Cornwall, visiting some of our favourite places.
Views across from Fowey (pronounced Foy rhymes with joy) over to Polruan. Fowey is very special to us, as it is where we got married!
Readymoney Beach is a small cove at the far end of Fowey
Daphne Du Maurier's home, in 1940s(so very pretty it looks straight out to the cove)
A peep through the trees to the garden
Path back to the town
Views to "Frenchmans Creek"
Out to sea
Afternoon Tea in the Dwelling House Tearooms
A few of the lovely shops in Fowey *~*
Daymer Bay, Trebetherick (such a pretty place)
We walked to St Enodoc Church
A beautiful little church which had to be dug out of the sand dunes!
Parts of it date back to the 12th century
Pretty wool tapestry Prayer Hassocks
Sir John Betjeman and his parents are buried here
Views across the sea
You can see why it is very popular for Weddings!
Back to Lostwithiel and this is our favourite restaurant (small and intimate) but this trip we had one of these instead......
Yummy !!!

A Morning in The Potting Shed!!

Well not really, it's the window end of the garage (I was having a Carol Klein moment) I have spent the morning sowing more seeds, mainly pretty flowers so fingers crossed!
Rebeckia and hollyhocks are peeping **
I took a walk around the garden in between the showers to see how it was getting on, my pretty bluebells tinkling in the breeze *~*
A clump of sweet violets came with me from Cornwall
Even the fairy is fed up with the rain!
I am going in now for a nice hot cup of tea**
