My mother, reflecting in old age on her young life in Cornwall and the experiences that formed her as artist and gardener. Summers in Sennen Cove and gardens her mother created. Tracing her innate creativity through the making of dollshouses, shared by a father she hardly knew. With the passing of generations oral history is so swiftly lost. This is a fragment from the past; part of family's history recorded on a summer's day in a garden full of flowers.
