    Such a paradise, takes me back to South Africa. And what a colourful Golden Pheasant to finish with πŸ™‚

  2. What great picture and colors

  3. Kris P says:

    If it weren’t for the bird, I’d be wondering if you weren’t here in Southern California!

    • Cathy says:

      Haha – and yet it’s hard to believe that this golden pheasant is resident in the wild in parts of the UK. Oh, and apparently a certain President’s hair has been compared to it… πŸ˜‚

  4. Cathy says:

    What a treat Cathy! Where did you take the pictures?

  5. Brian Skeys says:

    Where have you been hiding that part of the garden Cathy?

  6. You must be in a very warm place. I love those dark aeoniums. That is one handsome pheasant too.

  7. rusty duck says:

    Fabulous. Can you still get there by air?

    • Cathy says:

      Indeed – we went by boat 😝 but came back by air – as a very infrequent flyer I had mixed feelings about the 8 seater plane πŸ˜‰

  8. Anna says:

    Oh looking at your photos has made me glow with those vibrant colours. Hard to comprehend that it’s the same country! I hope that Tresco lived up to all your expectations and more Cathy.

    • Cathy says:

      Thanks Anna. It would be much more vibrant in summer of course but it was good to see it – although I have to say I do prefer more typical British gardens πŸ˜‰

  9. Chloris says:

    Oh wonderful, Tresco is my idea of heaven and the Abbey Gardens are certainly paradise. Such a pity that you can no longer go by helicopter from Penzance.

    • Cathy says:

      We came back by plane which was only 15 mins and there is a shuttle bus/taxi from Land’s End to Penzance which was only about 10 or 15 mins

  10. Beautiful photos, Cathy. What a dream of a garden!

  11. Oh my goodness Cathy that is stunning. Such colour a feast for the eyes

  12. Helen Johnstone says:

    gorgeous and strange as today I booked a holiday there in September!

    • Cathy says:

      Oh, that’s something to look forward to Helen. There is a community garden on St Mary’s called Carreg Dhu which isn’t mentioned in the guidebook we had but is well worth a visit. Are you on an organised trip? We did look (briefly) at the RHS one as well as other non-gardening trips but arranged it ourselves in the end as it was much more economical

  13. I did think “Wow! Where have you been?” Then I saw the tag! I forget that Treaco looks so tropical – not that I’ve been!
