Heligan Mud Maiden


Heligan Mud Maiden

Many thanks to Bloomer for going to the trouble of posting the blogs showing Heligan!
Visited the website and was just blown away by what has been done there as well as the history.
I want a Mud Maiden in my garden now.....

I think she was in the Woodland Garden. All sorts of really cool plantings there! Would love to be able to visit this in person!
Wonder how long it would take to view the entire property, properly?

Ah, lucky you Pam and it was my pleasure :)

I felt lucky Lil and Bloomers wonderful blogs have reminded me of so much I'd forgotten.
Its not an easy journey to Cornwall once you leave the motorway, cornish lanes are amazing often one car wide with banks of wild flowers either side and if the seamist rolls in quite spooky.....you may be able to find some photos on google images

Quite a few on their website, though not nearly as nice a Bloomer's.
Think if I made it to Cornwall, the rest would be easy, even driving on the wrong side of the road ;)))

My OH is a Janner. We did a 'roots' journey a few years ago...we didn't go to Heligan, but he took me around all the beautiful coves where he spent his childhood. The road down to Lamorna (?) is just amazing.

On some cornish roads Lil there isn't a wrong side...

I sort of remember some geology programme showed Cornwall and Scotland separate to England, came together later in its evolution fascinating places....

Her hair-do is brilliant! :)

2 Jun, 2012

 

Go for it ,Lil..first select your model ..and wait a good few years..! easy peasy :o)..My hair looks like that in the morning anyway,so I have a 'head'start (sorry) for the design.!.Lol

2 Jun, 2012

 

I hope the rest of you isn't like that too, Bloomer...green and furry?? lol!!! ;)

2 Jun, 2012

 

I really need to make one of these!!!! Very effective

2 Jun, 2012

 

LOL Bloomer and Karen!
Furry is understandable, but green??? Off to the dr's Bloomer ;)))
Great isn't it Lu.

2 Jun, 2012

 

just brill, have just the spot for her!

2 Jun, 2012

 

Lol Karen and Lil..green is the way to go... me being organic an all ! :o)..but furry? never ...that lichen wouldn't be a good look..although I would always have a checkout of my own,at the supermarket :o))

2 Jun, 2012

 

LOL....sorry Bloomer but you've left me no choice...I've had to report you to the local Health Department ;)))

2 Jun, 2012

 

Oh, no, Bloomer! Not another report to the authorities???

Pack a case quick, before they close the ports!!

You can hide out here if need be, but, if I'm asked, I've never heard of cat-woman or green-woman or anything like that...honest Guv! She's gone to earth!!! ;)))

2 Jun, 2012

 

I know a few who would prefer me to be in Quarantine,Lil and Karen...looks like I will need to hide in a container ship,to Calais...know of a good escape hole in the fence ? :o)Lol.

3 Jun, 2012

 

I know I will never be in the greens section of the supermarket again without thinking of you Bloomer :0

3 Jun, 2012

 

Cabbage patch doll ? I will watch out for you ....Boo!
Wouldn't that be scary ? Lol :o)..

3 Jun, 2012

 

Green furry things, black furry things...
...whatever next???
I just don't know...and probably just as well!! lol!!! :)))))

3 Jun, 2012

 

Don't delve too deeply,Karen..it won't help..:o)

3 Jun, 2012

 

LOL! True, true, true!!!
The problem is, Bloomer...with that mud-maiden...
Wouldn't you just love to look like that...minus the mud, and the green furry stuff, and the hairdo...oh! and the face...
...okay...I know...I might have to give up the wine... ;)))

3 Jun, 2012

 

What..prone on gravel,and Paralytic,with that ''how did I get here''expression ? ..maybe not...prefer the green furry look ! L0L .:o))))))

3 Jun, 2012

 

Oh dear....pop in for a quick check and Karen's already SIHW ;))
Lol Bloomer...thought I saw NanaD at the gym not long ago!

3 Jun, 2012

 

Oh! Help, Bloomer!!!
What does that say about me then????
Definitely time to see the doct....
...no, it's okay...there's a white van just pulled up outside the house...! :))))))))

3 Jun, 2012

 

Oh goody!!! I'll have company then!!!

3 Jun, 2012

 

Sorry,can't join you..white is so much not my colour ! :o)
Ok then,but only if I get to wear the straightjacket ! Lol..
OMG,this rain is doing my head in !

3 Jun, 2012

 

We're set for two weeks of it, Bloomer!
Things can only get worse...mark my words...we're doomed, doomed...!
(sorry, Lil - you'll not get that one...unless they sold "Dad's Army" to Canadian tv...)

3 Jun, 2012

 

Really? oh that's bad..think it's going to be fine tomorrow,but all downhill for the rest of the week ..oh
joy ! ..Definitely doomed,I tell you,Doomed ! ..:o)

3 Jun, 2012

 

Ah weel....

Don't Panic.....don't Panic...... :0)

4 Jun, 2012

 

False Alarm!!

The metéo is completely different now!
Definitely a bit cooler...but, sunny...
Actually, I don't know why I bother looking - it's never right lol!

4 Jun, 2012

 

Never right here either, Karen! They seem to have a brilliant way of forecasting the type of weather here - they wait to see what happens in any region - then post their prediction based on what's already happening! Clever!
