A very Happy Easter to you all!

Happy Easter spring daffodils in Ednovean hallJust wanted to wish you all a very Happy Easter and hope you are enjoying the sunshine wherever you are but particularly if you are in Cornwall!

Charles and I have been busy over the last few weeks preparing the house and garden for our spring break and Easter guests. Finally when we had finished we just had time to flop on a bench in the last of the days sunshine with a glass of wine to watch the garden settle into the dusk. It is lovely to listen to the birdsong with Spud cat in attendance naturally.

I made a short video of the spring garden with the tinkling fountain and the birdsong which sounds great even if my movie skills could be better!

Bluebells in the spring sunshineThe cherry trees are coming out into flower now down below the farm in the village of Perranuthnoe – a real treat at this time of year and a marker for the season. Here in the Ednovean Farm Gardens the apple trees and the exotic looking Echiums – natives of Tenerife are bursting into flower ready for the Easter break.

The country lanes are full of the white May flowers in a hazy froth of blossom, laced with bluebells and primroses on the verdant banks below

Each day now we watch the days grow longer and the countryside grow lusher, as the horses shed their winter woolies out on the farm .

We had a spring treat last week too, with a guided tour around Tremenheere Sculpture gardens and the newly opened gallery and my blog (that I must admit is getting longer and longer with far too many pictures) should be out about mid week until then here’s my spring snaps and again I hope you are enjoying the Easter Weekend!
