Ednovean Farm’s spring garden in March

Spring growth, bright greenleaves

I opened the top door and spotted the climbing Hydrangea had sprung into growth over the last few days

This month I’ve watch the spring develop around me and I’ve celebrated each tiny progress in my weekly blogs charting the burgeoning daffodils that have brought bright swathes of colour in casual drifts under the palms. So for this final blog roundup celebrating the beginning of spring in Cornwall I took one last walk around the garden to record some of the broader views and enjoy the layers of texture of the palms shrubs as the garden moves forward to the next chapter of its life.

Gardening just above the sea in spring, at least has the benefit of the warmer maritime climate keeping the frost away and lending extra light to the garden as the sun bounces off of the water. Continue reading “Ednovean Farm’s spring garden in March” »

I took a snap of the church in Perranuthnoe as I walked across our lawn at Ednovean farm this week

A very happy Easter to you all!!

I hope you are enjoying the first Bank Holiday of the year with its curiously unfixed date. As we celebrated Easter with our guests at Ednovean Farm this year I wondered exactly why it was such a moveable holiday. Each year is different from the last, as the seasons change and each year gives a different experience and atmosphere to the holiday and so in this blog I set out to find out and also share our Easter Morning here at Ednovean Farm Continue reading “Easter 2016 Wishing you a very Happy Easter!!” »

A spring morning in our garden and the day almost seems to shimmer with anticipation

There has been an almost tangible air of expectation in the air in the days leading up to the spring equinox. I felt it so strongly this week as I walk down through the dew laden morning to feed the brood mares and I stopped to take a snap of the morning magic as each droplet of water magnified the rising sun thrice fold. The very early Easter this year at last coincides with the height of the spring flowers as it always seems rather sad that the very brightest flowers have long finished before our guest arrive for their Easter break.

In this week’s blog I’ve looked a spring changes in Perranuthnoe, the growing momentum of spring in our garden and Danni our Spanish stallions special spring treat –  a dressage course with Jenny Rolfe, just because I thought you’d like to see his picture!

The March Lion

Daffodils in a cornish spring garden

After the storm and the Daffodils are unruffled

“March roars in like a Lion and out like a lamb” Well March has certainly roared in like a lion this week, treating us to (hopefully) one final flourish of the #stormwithnoname as social media dubbed it. Now I’m waiting patiently for the second part of the edict “out like a lamb”

Still this morning, the viciously cold wind of yesterday, gave way to a gently warm day today and the wild storm capped waves that yesterday raced across Mounts bay have settled down once more with the mellow blanket of spring once again wrapped around us. Continue reading “The March Lion” »
