Every June I open up my studio to the public for 2 weekends as part of the Borderland Visual Arts group Open Studios. I demonstrate and chat to everyone about my work. We welcome visitors to stroll around the garden and look at the photography display by Myk Briggs in the summerhouse. We had mixed weather as usual, persistent rain over the first weekend and a mini heatwave on the second!
We took a trip to Cornwall between the 2 weekends. Visiting The Lost Gardens of Heligan, somewhere I have wanted to visit ever since I saw the show garden inspired by the renovations at the Chelsea Flower Show many years ago.
Day 2 we enjoyed a great coastal walk near the Godrevy Lighthouse and Seal Bay.
Then on to St Ives to the Tate and the Barbara Hepworth Sculpture garden
We fitted in a visit to Wistman Wood on Dartmoor on the way home. It was a wonderful break and reminder of how beautiful our countryside is.
