Last Thursday we walked from Carbis Bay into St Ives to visit Barbara Hepworth's garden. There are a number of famous gardens in Cornwall, the map above marks out Trengwainton, Trewidden, Godolphin and Trenheere with no mention of the small town plot that is the Hepworth sculpture garden. On our walk into town, under a clear blue sky, we passed some lush planting.
The garden is a jungle of plants, narrow pathways and half-hidden sculptures.
The blue clock face of the town church is visible beyond the garden wall.
I'm not a fan of Barbara Hepworth's sculptures. (Heresy, as I studied at the same art school!) But sculptural forms are transformed when placed in a soft landscape.
I live with Himself (husband) in a former gamekeeper's cottage in the South-West of England.
