Eucalyptus trees are a notable feature of Morrab Gardens, and provide inspiration here for Julia Grigg's Morrab Miscellany
In Julia's Morrab Miscellany through the alphabet we arrive at D, where we learn about DH Lawrence and the time he and his wife Frieda spent in West Cornwall, and how Charles Darwin's beloved dogs helped him develop his influential ideas.
Julia contemplates city gardens, the quiet green places that are so calming and a haven for those of us who live with limited outside space. From the ideas of an early eighteenth century visionary to an escape from the stress of the modern day, Julia shows how gardens can enhance well-being.
Continuing her stroll through the alphabet, Julia Grigg reaches B and finds exotic trees and shrubs, an inspirational aunt and a music-loving ship owner and coal merchant
Julia Grigg muses on how plants from around the world have acclimatised to thrive in Cornwall in the first of her Morrab Miscellany blog posts
