I came upon this lovely flower yesterday in the gardens of Cotehele in Cornwall’s Tamar Valley. I shall be posting more about the visit to this magnificent old house, but for now I’m wishing only for more peace in the world.
All best wishes to everyone for the coming year

Happy New Year
Cheers, Carl. And thank you for making me laugh in 2015.
Beautiful Photography as always Tish, and Wishing You a Very Happy New Year with many more posts and photographs in the coming year! 🙂
Happy New Year Tish! May you and yours be blessed with health and happiness.
Thank you, Alison and Don. May you have a wonderful wandering year ahead.
Best wishes to you too
I’d give you a big hug if I could. Hope you are well, dear Noel. All best wishes to you in Kenya.
Have a pleasant year my friend.
May the allotment do well.
And may life treat you fair
Asante sana 🙂
Camellias are always fresh and lovely. Hoping for a fresh 2016. HAPPY New Yeat
Cheers, moondustwriter 🙂
A lovely way to say hello to the year.
I thought I’d help the year set the right tone for how it meant to proceed, Meg, though perhaps without quite so much rain 🙂
Peace would be top of my list too, Beautiful flower! xx
It’s raining here too, Tish. They suggested there might be snow… but it is just rain. Still, a very wintry morning to mark the new year, and lovely to hear from you. Wishing you and all your readers a very sweet year.
Greetings to you, Shimon. We’ve woken today to the first signs of winter we’ve had so far this season – frost on the roofs. After a week of warm, if windy and wet, weather in Cornwall, it’s a shock to the system. But a happy new year to you, and thank you for dropping by today.
I love this image…one of my all time favourites….Happy New Year…here’s to much creativity in the year ahead. Janet:)
Yes, more power to our making – whatever the medium 🙂
One of my favourite NT properties, glad you got to visiti Tish!
It was a bit hairy driving there in all the gloom, rain and mud, but well worth it. BTW, I did wave yesterday as we passed by a very sunny Exeter.
”I’m just sitting watching flowers in the rain, watching the garden grow….” The Move.
All the best for 2016, dear Tish.
Oh I remember that song. Just the thought of it whisks me right back to early years in secondary school. And all the very best of everything to you and yours in 2016.
Merci ! je me joins à tes voeux et te souhaite une belle, paisible, rayonnante nouvelle année 🙂
Merci beaucoup. A votre sante! Cheers!
My best wishes to you, my dear Tish! A very happy 2016 🙂
All the very best to you too, Marina. And thank you for all the tweets 🙂
Beautiful camellia. Happy 2016!
And Happy New Year to you and Chris.
So lovely! Despite/because of the rain. 🙂 Happy 2016 Tish!
Yes, start off the year on a positive note. Rain is good. It IS good. Even when I’m trying to take photos… 🙂
A beautiful image to start off 2016. Happy New Year, Tish.
Wishing you a very Happy New Year, Tish. I’m with you in wishing for growing peace on every level.
Bellissima! Buon anno anche a te,
Thank you 🙂
I hope 2016 brings you many more things of beauty to rival this camellia, Tish.
Oh that’s such a very lovely wish. Thank you, John. All the very best to you too.
I love the fact that the drops of water on the flower feel like they are about to pop out of the page. Thanks for this beautiful picture.
Glad it hits the spot, Dr. Y. I was surprised that the photo came out so well. It was so gloomy and wet when I took it.
A week late catching up with blogs, but this is a beauty. Looking forward to following along in 2016, best wishes, and I’ll second your wish for more peace in the world
Cheers. Pauline. You’re never too late 🙂
Cornwall’s Tamar Valley? I’ve heard you’ve got Piran (or similar), now Tamar too?? In Slovenia, where we have both as well, Tamar is a lovely valley underneath the mighty Julian Alps.
Not to mention, we have a VERY similar stone to the one in your next entry, please find it the link below. 🙂
