The earliest sundials date back to ancient Egyptian astronomy. Known as shadow clocks, sundials work by casting a shadow in different positions, at different times of the day, according to the elliptic orbit of the sun. So their place in a garden is both practical and decorative. Placed on a pedestal that can be either classical or modern, sundial faces are made from brass or other metals, they can be many shapes, from round to octagonal to spheres. Designers of sundials have traditionally used mottoes as part of their designs. These mottoes are often a reflection on our place in the natural order of things.
Now we move on to North Cornwall which is a more rugged coast fronting the Atlantic. Our first port of call is the Japanese Garden and Bonsai Nursery in the beautiful Lanherne Valley at St. Mawgan. Just 1.5 acres but includes Water Gardens, Stroll Garden and a Zen Garden inspired by the East. Moving on up the Coast to Padstow we find Prideaux Place that has 40 acres of landscaped grounds and a deer park overlooking the Padstow estuary and the River Camel. Last but not least on this coast is Longcross Victorian Garden at Trelights, Port Isaac. This is 4 acres and gives a fine example of coastal gardening and hedging with views towards Port Isaac and Port Quin.

In most people’s vocabularies‚ design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains and the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design. by Steve Jobs
