Pot luck!

So anyway, there we were riding and shooting the coastal path on Britain's southernmost tip - Lizard Point- when what should we come across but a tea pot tree! Yup, down in Cornwall they like to do things differently. All that warm air from the gulfstream means that exotic species of tree have a chance to drop roots and thrive. Palms, ferns and teapot trees. I was a little cagey about walking into the garden to take this picture to be honest. I mean what must the owner be like? A pixie? A goblin? Arthur having a brew and a Hob Nob? If you venture near the airfield at Pendrannack look out for it. Rumour has it you can draw off oil that has all sorts of medicinal uses......
