Blooming Truro

Exploring England #8

Garden Photography: Urban Spaces

In the warmth of a September evening, Truro is bright with natural colour. Beautiful hanging baskets greet visitors to Truro Cathedral.

Window boxes overflowing with greenery and planters filled with late summer blooms decorate the streets.

Begonias, all velvety yellows, oranges and reds, are complemented by delicate purple salvia.

These vibrant flowers fill me with anticipation for my own Southern Hemisphere summer!

Enjoy more blooming urban spaces with Jude.

    • Aren’t those hanging baskets gorgeous.
      I would love to see some photos of the snow, Judy. It doesn’t snow here in winter, and at the moment we’re having a very hot summer. Our daughter is working in a ski resort in the Rockies in Canada and her snow photos are amazing.

  1. Looks like a perfect time to visit Truro, with those colorful flowers. We have an Episcopal Church here in Fairfax named Truro. We don’t go there, but I wonder if the name comes from this one in England. 🙂

  3. It looked very quiet in Truro on that evening! I wonder whether that is the case now? Love the huge stone planters – are they pelargoniums? The pink and white flowers? Or perhaps hydrangea as they look rather large. Thanks for sharing this one Carol(e) with or without the e?

  4. A place I have actually been to! I don’t remember the floral displays, althought they should have been there as it was July when I was there with my mum for a brief visit a few years ago. What I mainly remember about Truro is that it was the first place where I saw ‘yarn bombing’ – on some of the posts in the main shopping area.
