As luck would have it, the first weekend of our holiday tied in with the Cornwall Spring Gardening Show at Boconnoc. It would have been daft not to go. In some ways it was torture for Mum and I, because we could not buy any plants, with four of us plus luggage in the car. And with over one hundred stands, temptation was lurking around every corner.
Still, it was great to see the plants on offer, and there were some very impressive displays in the competitions. I've not seen spring flowers in competitions before, and it was great to see so many varieties of daffodil, camellia and rhododendron in one place.
