We wait all year to see the beautiful cherries show off their incredible flowers and it is now that time of year at last!

The Mount Fuji cherry tree by our entrance sign is looking radiant – with those fluffy, white cloud blossoms covering the branches and back dropped by the plum blossom which is also looking sensational now.


Yesterday the sun shone all day long and I captured the photos below. Today its absolutely pouring with rain! You’ve gotta love Cornwall’s weather right?! haha.

The rain is never desirable when the cherries flower as the water kind of melts the blossoms… but hopefully it won’t last (crossing fingers on that one!).


If you are hoping to visit to see the cherry blossoms the mount fuji’s are flowering and a couple of other varieties, but the pink cherries are holding off for now (they are always a little later). So make sure you pop in soon if you are keen to see the whites. I will of course pop another update up when the pinks grace us with their flowers.


We also have a brand new Woodstock Windchime in stock – with the serenity prayer on the paddle. Its an absolute beauty and is a bargain at £29.95 – the equivalent sized chime we have is now £39.95!



Please check out the photos shot yesterday – pictured below – but make sure you bring your coat if you are coming today as its pouring!
