Standing on a ‘Monet bridge’, visitors to Cornwall’s Trebah Gardens might well feel like they are immersed in a living masterpiece by the French impressionist.
Despite being deep into autumn, Mallard Pond is a work of art with a stunning display of mostly blue hydrangeas.
Two acres of hydrangeas border its banks, creating a wall of colour in late summer months and seen in this photograph as dotted pastels across the landscape.
They were originally planted in 1949. In order to raise income for the garden, the cut blooms were sent to Covent Garden flower market.
