Anyway, lots of new life in the making. The lake is jammed with tadpoles, it seems one of our bird boxes on bird box lane has found an occupant as well and our flock of guinea fowl have all split up in smaller groups and pairs, so we have a little hope for some guinea fowl offspring this season too. It's all very exciting.
Plant wise I am pleased to inform you that the rhododendrons are in full glory at the moment, always a highlight in Bosvathick's garden and the blue bells are starting to emerge. The contrast of colour of the two brings truly a wow factor to the garden, something not to be missed.
I visited Trewithen yesterday which is a lovely garden near Truro. I must say I had a splendid time. The weather was great, I had my family with me so I was in great company and there were masses of specimen trees and shrubs in bloom. It was a good experience. Bosvathick is a little smaller and perhaps a little less grand, which is reflected in the entry price of course, but it is home and therefore more special to me. I know some of the history of this place and the efforts that have been put in, the changes that have been made and know about the visions that had to be brought from our minds and paper into realisation. There is a story being told here, and I am honoured to be able to add some sentences or even some chapters to this story of life at Bosvathick and its gardens. Hope you enjoy the small selection of photos below.
