Trebah Gardens


Trebah Gardens

Watercolour

Large Moleskine


Trebah Gardens drop down through a massive variety of tall trees and huge shrubs, different foliage making patterns everywhere. Wandering through groves of tree ferns and giant gunnera, past bamboo forests to a tiny beach where in June 1944 the American troops left for Omaha in Normandy. It is hard to imagine, standing among all this lush verdant peace, what awaited those poor men, what they must have been feeling, they were so young. There is a little memorial there, a bit moss covered now but still important.

If it was as lush back in '44, hopefully it gave them some peace before..........
