Rosemoor Aug 2010


By Arlene


We had a few days in Cornwall recently but on the way down stayed in Tiverton overnight so that we could go to Rosemoor on the way down to St Austell
here are some pics~

and finally a nice cup of tea and cake before heading off
~without buying anything! must be a first!

Arlene....these are beautiful much must have spent hours walking around the place. I bet you wouldn't know where to look first surrounded by such sights.

It's a special pleasure to see these photos now at this season to remind us of the joys of summer colour. I think Anchorman would approve of those striped lawns! lol

Thanks for sharing such a lovely spot with us.

I loved it at Rosemoor when I visited a few years back. Great to see all your photos to remind me how lovely it is. Those lilies seem to jump out of the photo! Great pics.

I'm a great fan of Rosemoor too, sadly it's a fair distance from us so we don't go there often enough. Beautiful photos, Arlene, love the lake. Ah, really must visit in the Spring. : o ))

Thanks for sharing your day out at Rosemoor with us! :-)) Such a fantastic show of beautiful plants! You were very fortunate also to catch all those butterflies - especially the one with TWO on ONE flower! I can't seem to get them to "pose" for me!

~ hi Balcony~
it was a lovely day and there were lots of butterflies all over this group of Buddleia~ there were some flowers with more than two on but just as you were lining up the shot they would decide to take off so I completely sympathise with you!

I was watching a couple of back episodes of Gardening World this afternoon & Rosemoor drew my attention as it was after reading & seeing the pictures in your lovely blog. They made a visit to those gardens I think on both the episodes I watched.
