Today's walkitcornwall quote

  "There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened." — Douglas Adams

I've published my pictures on facebook and my friends cannot believe that Cornwall is so amazingly beautiful. One of my friends is thinking of taking her mum on your walking holiday:-) I've recommended Walkitcornwall to her, as being based in Falmouth is definitely a better option and from personal experience, she will have a great and fun time with you.

My personal philosophy of walking

The shape of topiary in the Mendips

The shape of topiary on a walk in the Mendips with walkitcornwall

This topiary was seen on a walk in the Mendips when I was up there recently with the family. Now call me old fashioned but am I missing something here or are these topiary shapes, well you know, rather obvious?

Or has my misspent youth come back to haunt me? Have the locals said anything, or even noticed? We went to Cheddar Gorge, Longleat and the wonderful Westonbirt arboretum. If you love trees, their shapes, the complimentary planting of a wide variety of native and non-native species then go to Westonbirt. Especially in the autumn when the Japanese maples are in full colour. The Mendips and the Quantocks are wonderful. How about the Mendips Hills and the Quantocks for a walking holiday? Now there’s an idea. Watch this space.
