The Hum of Summer

The hum of summer has arrived, spreading through the garden with its many shapes and forms. Foxgloves protrude from the ground only to lean across paths bowing under the weight of their large tubular flowers. The pleasure grounds too come to life, once simple shrubs transform with blooms of white, yellow or red a celebration of the immense variety of plants brought here by our adventurous Victorian predecessors. For some, the most astonishing change is that of West Lawn, floods of wildflowers now thrive where simple meadow once lay; yellows, reds, purples, whites and pinks create a tapestry of colour, a pollinators delight. Above our heads an old friend has appeared, the swallow with its red breast and arrow-like shape, it dips and dives as it readies itself for this year’s chicks.

It is here that wildflower carpets of blue, pink and yellow flood all available space. Pollinators thrive here, their industrious hum evidence of a flourishing landscape. From the Estate, the Jungle and the Paddocks to the Pleasure Grounds and the walled Productive Gardens, Heligan is a joy for the visitor in May.
