Back at last - photos of Cornwall


Sorry for the long absence - a mix of not being well, work being absolutely hectic and then being on holiday.


This is where I've been - a lovely farmhouse up on the moor, just above the coast in the far south west of England - only a few minutes from Lands End.

and the lane to the farm (above and below) just one car wide and lined with wild flowers in the hedges ....



the stream that tumbles down through the valleyby the house, comes out at Porth Nanven below, less than a mile away.



Back later with sketches

You certainly were missed, Vivien. Very pleased to hear that there was holiday and beauty involved. Lovely photos. Wonderful flash of blue flowers in the lane. I do look forward to your sketches. And welcome back.
