To finish this lengthy look at Trebah Gardens near Falmouth, Cornwall, this lovely fountain greets one as you enter the top of the garden. If any of you Brits.ever venture that way then it is well worth a visit.

Rather nice likeness for a lotus, Brian.

[You sidetracked me with this lovely phrase... "...greets one as you enter...". ..it is not English, and made me wonder if your neighbours might be from South Asia? Cotswold hoi poloi might say "...greets one as one enters...", but Bacon buttie enthusiasts from South Birmingham are more likely to run with "...greets you as you enter..."...you have put a bob each way on the phrase.]
Brian Walbey: The way I have phrased it is the way I learnt it from my East Anglian heritage, the rest of the country must be getting it wrong smile
this is a rather nice fountain and rather unique to me, Brian. nice picture.
Brian Walbey: I wouldn't mind this in my garden.

A gunnera fountain, very appropriate
Brian Walbey: Lovely isn't it.
This is quite a nice and unique fountain Brian!
Brian Walbey: Lovely isn't it.
The rose trees might take my eyes from the fountain.
Brian Walbey: They make a nice backdrop don't they.
Impressive fountain Brian. One wonders what our Ray is on today!
Brian Walbey: Yes it 'greets one as you enter' , the proper, East Anglian way of phrasing it smile
A very handsome water feature!
Brian Walbey: Not at all bad is it.

So presumably the "leaves" here are are not natural? Very effective, though. The trouble with Cornwall is that it is such an awful place to get to! I hear that there are 40mph average speed cameras from the Devon border now.
Brian Walbey: The only way we would go to Cornwall now is by train or on a coach holiday to be honest, far too far for Maureen to drive.

Beautiful garden!
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Beth.
A lovely set of shots from Trebah Brian. I still haven't visited when the hydrangeas are blooming but maybe this year......
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Janet, and best wishes.
Isn't it wonderful!!!
Brian Walbey: Indeed a fine place to visit Elizabeth.
