This photo blog relives a visit to the Japanese Garden at St. Mawgan, near Newquay in Cornwall. I visited in the spring of 2017 when the Azaleas, Magnolia and Camellias were in full flower. I loved following the sinewy, gravel paths. I enjoyed the mix of formality and letting nature do its thing, such as allowing mosses to grow. There were some superb Acers and great colour contrasts of foliage.
A slideshow of some of my favourite photos follow. These picture were simply taken with my iPad before I had my current camera.
