My October garden – the season’s ticking clock

The big paddle shaped leaves of the bronze bananas plant with the mellow stone building of Ednovean Farm beyondAs I watch the garden mellow  this month  into the subtle shades of autumn, I can almost hear the ticking clock of the season – louder now with the change in the hour this weekend. But we are lucky here at Ednovean Farm that the garden remains vibrant, with the big clumps of Pampas grasses flower in a last dramatic flourish for the autumn and on the terrace a few Olives are ripening on the trees Continue reading “My October garden – the season’s ticking clock” »

Simply Breathtaking views over Godrevy and Gwinear beach

The long expanse of sands seems endless at low tide at GodrevyMy heart always leaps when I see the sand dunes at the bottom of the A30 on the way home and recently we took a look behind the dune at the three miles of golden sands.

I must say my first sight of Godrevy beach was simply breathtaking, with pale silky soft sands stretching away as far as the eye could see and a hint of sea vapour hanging in the air from the surging waves as they arrived on the shore.

Discover the hidden silver sands at Portheras Cove

A sandy cove surounded by wild windswept cliffs in CornwallWe set out last week to discover the hauntingly beautiful Portheras Cove of silvery white sands, and found it was a perfect walk for an autumn day with the magic of summer still lingering in the air.

Portheras Cove is set between Pendeen and Morvah and it can only be reach on foot along the coastal path. But it is so worth taking the walk to this quiet and secluded cove that attracts only the dedicated locals who look after the beach, passing walkers along the coastal route around West Cornwall and seals resting on the sands Continue reading “Discover the hidden silver sands at Portheras Cove” »

On location at Ednovean Farm

Massive stadium style lights backlit our garden ready for filmingWe were officially “on location” here last week at Ednovean Farm when scenes from a forth coming Rosamunde Pilcher film “Almost Unmarried” were shot in the house and garden by a German film company. At times it felt like a cross between a three ring circus and Groundhog Day as the painstaking process of creating a film slowly unrolled before us and I have to say the final result were quite magical and tribute to the filmmakers art and of course the film crew were quite charming, professional and courteous. By the time the final scenes were shot I found myself thinking “My God! We really have built a film location”

*Update* !! The Film “Almost Divorced” will be shown on sunday the 26th of February at 8.15 p.m. on ZDF
