Mothering Sunday


By gwendas


Dear everyone
Hope you have been enjoying some of this good weather? We had a beautiful sunny Sunday and took Rog’s Mum to walk round the lovely Camellia filled gardens on the Tregothnan Estate near Truro.

They produce teas there – lovely Earl Grey I can recommend! and I picked up their new echinacea one and some of their honey in case of colds!
The grounds aren’t open very often but this was a charity event.

Aren’t they just beautiful?
I know it’s a bit late in the day but Happy Mother’s day and for some of us GOY members loving memories of our dear late Mums.
Lots of love

Thanks all x Yes it was a joy and a privilege. I think plans are afoot to open more to the public and I for one would love to return in the summer if only to see the masses of crocosmia 'on fire' around the lake area!
