Most mornings I go for a walk really early, it wakes me up and I like the time to myself. Some mornings are better than others, today's was beautiful due to a really heavy frost, and a large dose of sunshine.
For the past three years I have been very honoured to help a lovely plants woman called Mrs Roberts tend to her amazing garden, a very private lady with brilliant tales to tell.
The gardens at Lanhydrock house are as stunning as the house itself, they are quite sheltered and seem to thrive in that Cornish almost tropical climate that you find in enclosed garden spaces.
If you find yourself in Surrey make sure you visit the Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden, you won't regret it. That's as long as you like magical places and great works of art.
