June has been a wonderful month for the garden here at Ednovean farm, with the sun almost dancing in the garden’s shadows. The long dry spell has suited our planting of drought loving and grey leafed plants perfectly here in our seaside garden. This month more of the garden furniture has had a bright new makeover, more unruly hedges have been almost tamed into submission and I completed a tiny new garden project.

“There is something very comforting about a summers’ evening in Cornwall” Charles remarked tonight as we sat in the garden and he’s right – there is something quintessentially British about sitting in the fading light as a long summer evening meets the night. It brings those half remembered impressions of past summers back to the forefront of our memories– those symbols that say summer in big bold letters.

All in all I can definitely say it is starting to feel like June now with a new high forming over the British Isles to bring that delicious holiday heat. Perhaps we were lucky, last week, to live in West Cornwall, with the most westerly and the most southerly point nearly on our doorsteps. Certainly our Bed and Breakfast guests made the best use of geography and leap-frogged to the best spots to enjoy their holidays: one day a trip to the Lizard Point to walk around the Peninsular, another to Land’s End to explore the craggy granite cliffs and they even managed a warm sunny evening to watch a play at the Minack Theatre too!

June seemed to appear suddenly this year, without warning. With June came the first meteorological day of summer – in fact I think we tiptoed into summer this year from the long spring days that lingered still fresh and new in our minds. The sea that frames our lives looks impossibly blue these days – one day soon we must walk down to the water’s edge again…… but not yet, not until I’ve finished painting! Still wouldn’t it be nice to linger over breakfast on the lawn gazing at St Michael’s Mount while planning the day stretching ahead around the Cornish coast?
We are thrilled to have reached the final selection for the June heat of the Dorset Cereal’s B&B awards. This is the first year for this competition, and they will be looking for independent, special places to stay in association to the Alastair Sawday team. We’d love you to vote for us of course and even better you will have a chance to win a hamper too just by casting your vote! To vote just follow the Ednovean Farm B&B link!
Thankyou if you voted for us – as the next twelve B&B’s are now on the page so the links above are no longer live 🙂 Until the next time!
