Helston Flora Day 2018 was a brilliant, colourful affair. I'd like to say the day started off bright and sunny, but it dawned grey and dull. Never mind, the day...
Although I am naturally drawn to the cliffs in #Cornwall, in the spring you can’t beat the Penrose Walks Porthleven Cornwall. It is now early April and the bluebells are coming through, leaving a beautiful scent wafting on the air as you walk past.
A few years ago, the National Trust opened up more walking routes and the Penrose walks Porthleven Cornwall are now quite varied. Some of them follow the edge of the loe, or lake, others meander along the fields above, dipping into the woods or crossing the sand at #Loe Bar. There are now so many to choose from, I never get bored. On a calm, sunny day, the reflections on the still, glassy water are beautiful. If it is windy, then I walk through the woodland, especially now it is draped in so many flowers.
There is now a cafe open in the estate grounds should you not want to wait until you get back to Porthleven for refreshments.
