A White world

Today's post is way too long .............but I hope that you will enjoy scrolling quickly through to explore Ednovean farm and gardens from every corner in the snow this morning and some of the lovely vistas revealed from there, etched in white.

................. The first is taken from across the lawn towards the Italian Garden

and the view through the garden gate to St Micheal's Mount

Mounts bay blanketed in snow

a garden pot an cacti.............not sure if the cacti will survive though!

Perranuthnoe across the fields

with the lovely old church tower framed by the Cordylines

the village again across our front field as the light improved

Perranuthnoe church against the sea

a small allee of Cordylines

the long shadows of the morning across the lawn

The Italian garden the shelter of the hedges are providing welcome shelter for the birds

I'm not noted for my discipline in selecting the shots - ones good twos better................!

or maybe three..............

definitely five!

Let's go in for a minute - the discus thrower
one of my favourite sheltered corners tucked behind the Italian Garden
A viewing seat in the Italian Garden
The little sheltered sundial garden below the Apricot room

and from the steps in the shelter belt to the left of the Apricot room terrace - Perranuthnoe framed by the garden

Looking back to the house from across the garden

and now back to the main terrace in front of the Blue Room and the Garden room

Back into the courtyard in front of the house

Looking across the parterre to a sheltered courtyard where guests like to sit in the summer
the central plaque that we laboriously carried back form our holiday one year!
and now

From the entrance gate across the car park to the house

a view across the roof towards the village church of Perranuthnoe

Looking back out in to the lane from our car park - fingers crossed for our Date palms please

The side of the house

and through the entrance gate to the front door - Ian Lowe our garden designer positioned the hedge so that the Parterre and Second set of Date palms wouldn't be revealed until guest had walked a little further

A pot positioned to make a short vista from the front door across the courtyard

A view across mounts Bay from the top of the farm - to see the horse please visit my other blog Dani's blog

Charles only went as far as the muck heap!
