A very Happy Easter – will it be one to remember?

Happy Easter - Bright Daffodils in flower at Easter time in CornwallA very Happy Easter to you all – although I don’t believe any body is singing “I’m dreaming of a white Easter” at the moment!  Strangely, if we were start from a normal place in a normal year it would be unheard of to snow at Easter time, yet this year there is certainly a chance that The Easter of 2018 might be one to remember.   And the final piece of evidence to cap it all for me is that Easter Sunday falls on April the first! The traditional jokers day, so who knows what could happen.    

So it all started with a Polar Vortex

Easter view from Ednovean Farm - horses blue seas and daffodilsThe weather has certainly been a hot topic of conversation on our Facebook page this week and I’ve just checked the forecast for Penzance at the moment is forecast to be a cosy eight degrees for Sunday rising to almost a mini heat wave of eleven degrees by Monday. But these are extraordinary times as the Polar Vortex is disrupted over the Poles, in turn changing the jet stream to send cold Siberian air towards the UK , so who really knows what might happen.

Easter preparations for our guests as we fight off the Beast

Spring daffodils are perfect for an early easter - garden walk at Ednovean Farm

The Easter holiday is always a biggy for Bed and Breakfasts and Hotels each year of course as the first real break since Christmas time and at Ednovean Farm we’ve spent many hours working in the gardens to clear away the debris for the first and second visits of “The Beast from the East” and having finally produced some semblance of style and order the prospect of a third doesn’t bare thinking about. I’ve had plenty of time to recall the saying “Woe, woe and thrice woe” as I wheeled the dead Echiums, alas not to show their stunning flowers this May, to the bonfire this week.

Lawns carefully mown for our Easter Guests

Still looking on the bright side, I’ve always hoped our garden would be full of Daffodils for our guests to enjoy at Easter time and at least this year’s very early Easter has allowed them to shine at last, set along a spring walk with lovely sea views in our gardens. So very different to last years later Easter

Happy Easter!
