Big excitement - have just booked holiday - based on OH saying we are not going to be ruled by M have booked for 2 and a bit weeks in Cornwall. Wow such a long time away. Can't wait well guess I'll have to - loads of gardens, maybe a trip to Tresco, definately Eden Project weeee
have also done some potting on hmm, not sure if will survive but they are now on window seat
Be aware no helicopters fly anymore, it's the 'puke-boat' or aeroplane to St Mary's only now. My Aunt and Uncle live on Tresco, Anchor cottage, (it's the house with the massive anchor stuck in the seawall in front of the road! My uncle always grows lovely annuals and agapanthus in his front garden, you may well have seen it when travelling past from the quayside (which is literally 300 yards from the quay). It is a shame what has been done to the Isles of Scilly, all thanks to the wonderful work the Dorian-Smiths have done to remove any actual true 'islanders' from anywhere other than St Mary's.
The islands are where I spent nearly every summer for 15 years for my holidays and the Abbey Gardens are splendid.
