Paradise ..or near as dammit!

You can't beat the old fashioned nursery, can you? And if it's in a beautiful setting (which it usually is) then it makes it all the more worth the visit.
Hill House at Landscove, here in South Devon, is one such place!
A 'to die for' , gorgeous piece of heaven on earth.
And that's where we found ourselves today!

I've been here many times and each time is pure joy.

You can wander to your heart's content.

And, naturally, there's a tea room as well ;-)

I was very good and purchased two poppies

The rest of my photos are here:

We came back home via Ashburton where I found a 'little gem' for my garden...will show you that tomorrow, along with the poppies ;-)

Looks like a lovely peaceful place. I bet it will be busy come this weekend! Enjoyed looking at your photos on flickr too.


Sounds wonderful, just my sort of day out!

I held my breath through that post after seeing the first photo. It looks absolutely stunning. You MUST take me there!!
Have a great weekend x


The best time of year to visit a place like this, lovely specimens. Did you walk past the teashop without stopping! x

That wisteria is absolutely stunning! No wonder you love it there so much - it looks wonderful. x
