Mothering Sunday treat at Cotehele, National Trust, Cornwall.

This Mothering Sunday was pretty special. I actually took some time out (i.e a whole weekend!) and completely downed tools. The joyous feeling of being on a break was obviously enhanced by the sunshine being out to play all weekend too.   My daughter and I delighted in the smell of fresh flowers everywhere and they really were everywhere!   Since she was a tiny tot she has always bent right into the flowers and taken a huge sniff, appreciating the scents.
