A couple of times a week I drive past the boating lake in Newquay and have noticed a little rose garden. After a horrendously hot afternoon in work I decided to stop on the way home and have a look and get some fresh air before tackling the traffic. Yes the silly season has started in Cornwall. Wow, what a little gem of a garden! So many different types of roses, and the smell was wonderful, I wish you could incorporate smell into blogs. I'm usually more of a wild garden rather than a formal garden type of person, but the colours and variety of the roses were stunning. The gardeners have done a wonderful job. If you are ever in Newquay in the summer, take the time to go and smell the roses.
I didn't even know you could get purple roses.
While I was there I took a stroll around the boating lake and came across these little fellas, I haven't a clue what they are, perhaps Em from Dartmoor Ramblings will know?
Beautiful little bird.
Funniest looking ducks, with huge feet and boy could they move. This one was heading straight for me, and looked at me as if to say get out of my way or I'll knock you over!
Just love that tuft :)
I hope you have enjoyed the rose garden, do you have a favourite rose?
I re read this post before I hit publish and realised I had typed gobbledegook, I think the hot sleepless nights are getting to me, please excuse any typo's normal service will be resumed as soon as I have stopped melting. Off to Samba practice tonight, crikey it's going to be so hot, you would think I would be losing pounds in this heat, but no such luck. All you people in genuinely hot countries must think we are a bunch of whingers over a little heat, but we just aren't used to it. Oh how I wish we still lived in our old cottage with thick walls and little windows, it stayed lovely and cool in the summer.
Take care everyone,
