Lost Gardens of Heligan - summer post 1

So the UK is actually having a decent summer. The sun is shining, the air is warm and the flowers are blooming. A perfect time to go visiting gardens. Back in early July... yes I did say July, I visited the Lost gardens of Heligan in Cornwall.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan was once a derelict garden, it was discovered by Tim Smit (creator of the Eden project) and John Willis (a Tremayne descendant the first owners of Heligan house) in 1990. They started a grand restoration of the gardens and I'm sure glad they did.
The Jungle area.

The walled gardens and greenhouse.
Just some of the many beautiful plants.

I didn't expect to see animals.
The giants head sculpture.
The Mud Maid sculpture.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan is 200 acres of beauty perfect for wildlife lovers and garden lovers.

This was the first post of a series of summer themed blog posts. In the next post I'll be visiting a National Trust garden.
Thanks for stopping by!
