This year, I discovered a smaller picture by Anne Stokes that complements the autumnal theme of the other one, so I happily added it to my wall as well:

As you venture through the chalk limestone caves, the styles of the pillars tell you in which era the sections were quarried - Roman, Saxon and Norman all feature.
You can find Beer Stone in almost every church in East Devon, and it's also been used in Exeter, Winchester, St.Paul’s and Norwich Catholic Cathedrals, Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London.

I just love the name of these gardens - what a creative title to spark inspiration!
I'm down in Cornwall to visit a friend and The Lost Gardens of Heligan beckoned to us. Here's a bit of the blurb:
The Tremayne Family have owned the 200-acre Heligan Estate for over 400 years. During the 18th and 19th centuries there was a thriving, almost self-sufficient community here. Heligan House was rented out after World War 1. In the 1970s it was converted to flats and sold off, separated from its surrounding Gardens and Estate. In 1990 this Sleeping Beauty was discovered and re-awakened, becoming Europe's largest garden restoration project.
And here are some pics of the treats in store:
