Whilst we bask in these sub-tropical climes,  thought we'd do a photo-album of our beautiful sub-tropical flowers and plants that are benefiting from the glorious sunshine.

This is the last week of us opening the gardens from Monday to Friday. July and August will see us open Thursday and Friday until 5.30pm, so do come and enjoy the splendour of our gardens on the edge.

Love this sandcastle pic of St Michael's Mount built by some local schoolchildren. Very creative.

Some very special footprints were installed on the harbour side of St Michael's Mount yesterday. Any guesses as to who they belong to? I'll give you a clue.....they don't belong to our legendary Giant Cormoran!

Always a delight to visit St Michael's Mount. We walked across and got the boat back. (Then had a paddle on the beach- it being a surprisingly warm late September!) Beautiful historic place with exquisite gardens and a beautiful building if you have strong enough legs to climb up! It is quite a steep climb up to the castle itself so some visitors with mobility issues may want to stay in the beautiful Sail Loft restaurant and enjoy a gorgeous cream tea while they wait for their family or friends! Highly recommend a visit. Cant wait to go back.If you're National Trust members, entry to the house and Gardens is free.

Fabulous day out having "an adventure in the castle". The NT staff and volunteers - in the carpark as well as on the island! - made the whole day thoroughly enjoyable both for us as adults, and also for our 3 year old son (he loved the treasure hunt!); even when the weather kept on turning from sun to torrential downpours. I have fond memories of visiting when I was much younger, so great to re-visit with my own family!

The experience of walking through the sea to the island was very new to us. We were expecting freezing cold water buy it was surprisingly warm. The castle is based on the top of the mount. It's really nice. You cannot see it all owing to the fact that the family lives there. Apparently they are not owners of the castle any more but they can live there - I wish I have a castle. It was absolutely great trip. You have to go there and don't take a boat - walk through the sea - it's more fun this way:-)

Gardens are stunning, especially on a sunny day. The whole place is quite interesting but be prepared for a workout as its all quite steep! Check tide times before you visit as the causeway closes and you have to pay for a boat to take you across (bit of a long queue on the way back)

Although only able to walk to during low tide, this site is really a wonder! Historically, St Michael's Mount is the Cornish counterpart of Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, France. It shares the same tidal island characteristics, although being much smaller. If you are in the area and have the time, this is a must see!

It's costs £2 for a single ferry ride across to the island and then £2 back. If it's low tide you can walk across for free. To get in and view the castle it's £9 and an extra £8 to see the gardens. We just viewed the castle itself which was absolutely brilliant. The walk up isn't the best unless you're fit and able to do so as it's very uneven which loose stones and rocks and is very steep. But once you're both outside and inside the castle it's so worth it. The views are incredible as you look out to sea or back in land. The staff are so lovely and friendly and then if that wasn't enough theirs a lovely cafe at the bottom once you've walked back down. Well worth a visit!!!

Beautiful and iconic scene that could be straight out of a fantasy novel. National Trust upkeep is superb as expected and both the village surrounding the church and the church itself are fantastic. Museum is informative if a little small, however the price to be allowed to walk up and go to the church of £9 is too high, although I understand funds are needed for the upkeep. Recommended for a days walk and stayed for an hour for lunch.

Lovely abbey on this island. Enjoy crossing the walkway during low tide. Just remember the garden is only open a few days a week, check the website.
