A view beyond

Perranuthnoe set along Mounts Bay

I went out to a wild blustery morning with sharp chilly sunshine and white horse dancing across the bay and my eyes were instinctively drawn beyond the garden down into Perranuthnoe village, with the church tower jubilantly crowned by four pinnacles sheltered from the gale.

Our encompassing Olaria hedge that Ian Lowe recommended has formed an unobtrusive if vigorous windbreak sheltering the garden

although our palms were forming the first line of defence this morning as Ian had intended "combing the wind" as he liked to put - i wonder what it is like on St Micheal's Mount this morning with the sea surging around? I think thy are on their Winter opening hours now of Tuesday and Friday so tomorrow is the day if you are in Cornwall!
