On the first day we went shopping and had afternoon tea before going to the theater.
On this day we visited Epping forest.
The next day we took the train to revisit RHS Wisley. It was peak dahlia season and their World garden was spectacular with all of the ripe fruits and vegetables.
We spent the next two days in the Cotswolds driving around and visiting Kelmscott Manor, William Morris’ summer home.
We then drove down to Cornwall and spent a magical evening at the Minack theater. The next day we drove up to the Lost Gardens of Heligan which had an interesting mix of formal and tropical gardens.
We spent some time on the east side of the coast, which seems to have cliffs down to the ocean. Like Scotland, the animals are part of the scenery.
We drove north to visit Tintagel and then down along the coast to St Ives. Instead of shells, seaglass is what washes up on the beaches.
St. Michael’s Mount. A tidal island with a causeway that is underwater at high tide. Beautiful terraced garden, uphill all the way!
