Today we are off to the gardens at St Michael's Mount. To see my previous posts click on the words St Michael's Mount in the labels at the end of the post.
The gardens are essentially on vertical granite rock face. There are narrow little paths all over the place and plants tucked in everywhere there is a gap or where something will grow. I don't know the names of most of these plants, so I have left no comments on the pictures. I hope that you will enjoy just looking at them.
You can see just how vertical the rock face is here!
We had then ended our visit and it was time to walk back to the mainland. The tide had gone right out during our visit, so we walked back across the sand. We stopped to take a look at the work that was going on repairing the causeway and to look back at the castle.
It was a wonderful visit and I am so glad that we went. I would thoroughly recommend a visit if you ever get the chance to go.
Thank you for all of your lovely comments on the previous two posts. I am glad that they have bought back many happy memories for so many of you and inspired dreams of future visits for some of you too! I hope you get to realise your dreams and go there yourself someday.
Tomorrow is my lunch, so I will be back at some time over the weekend or next week with news of how it went.... Fingers crossed that it is all OK! Today I am going to be a cooking and baking maniac to get ready!
See you soon!
