Clare and Cameron celebrated their first year of marriage by planting a Cornish apple tree 'Polly' right outside Polly's Bower this weekend.

After finding an old cobbled pathway and digging it up, they finally managed to dig the hole and plant the tree!

Andrew cracked the champagne....

and Claire insisted on burying the cork!

After pouring cider all around the tree to wassail it and wish it good luck, the happy pair toasted their accomplishment , Cameron tried the only apple on the tree and they finished the day off with a go on the swing!

A bumper crop!

This year's blossom at Lantallack is more beautiful and abundant than ever before....a very good omen for a bumper crop of apples in September! Yum!

And the smell of Wisteria is lovely at this time of year too.  Summer is just around the corner...

And to top it all off, the temperature of the solar heated swimming pool is 81 degrees already!
