Cornwall Day Four - Trengwainton


Oh how I love this garden! Four visits and it just seems to be more beautiful each time! There are so many elements to it. Firstly a woodland walk with gorgeous ferns, camellias, rhododendrons etc. A picturesque pond with ornamental bridge. A terrace with distant views of the sea. A walled garden subdivided into many rooms. But the crowning glory, in my opinion, is the stream which meanders back down the hill from one end of the garden to the other, flanked with stunning waterside plants. Garden heaven! That's all I'll say about it. Enjoy the pictures. Better still, go there! Book a flight / coach / winged horse and go!

  2. Lovely, lovely, lovely. I really like the stream plantings. They give me ideas of my wetland border garden.
