Here at Ednovean we’re settling down to the shorter days as we speed towards the Winter Equinox. There’s a definite change to the seasons now and winter beckons with opens arms.
Ednovean Farm's garden throughout the year
Follow the sub tropical gardens and courtyards at Ednovean Farm though the season in our monthly garden diary. Each month I take fresh new photos to share with you and share our garden projects.
Suddenly the days lengthened, the courtyard gardens filled with birdsong and our two little bats emerged from their hibernation to flirt with the twilight. Summertime had arrived in our gardens!
This March has fled away from us, carried on the rollercoaster of spring towards its predestined destination. As the month closes, the wonderful tide of yellow daffodils has already started to give way to vibrant tulips in candy bright colours.
Our Ednovean winter has changed from winter to spring in the blink of an eye. Each week has given a new challenge – nevertheless I know the work that we do in the still short days will pay dividends throughout the summer months.
The seasons of the sun still linger in our autumn garden. Warm nestling echoes’ of summer time, that are occasionally met by the rattle of winter’s sabre.
The warmth has lingered in the courtyard gardens long into the evening this summer, with the old stone walls soaking up the heat and then slowly releasing the bounty of the day. It was oh so tempting to sit long into the darkness amongst the twinkle of candles. This summer we really did experience a very different life to our usual temperate coastal days!
Our garden’s journey from April, May into June for summer has not been without incident this year.
Yet gradually the bubbling energy of spring has given way to the frisson of summer days. And our garden has courted us once more to enjoy its depths. Check out the idea for the next garden project in the little video at the end!
There’s been an epic battle between the gales of winter and the certainty of spring this year. Finally, as we transitioned from the spring solstice to British summertime, the fresh growth of spring spread a balm of grace over our garden.
Now seems the perfect time to look back over 2021 in the Ednovean Farm Gardens. It has been a year that has seen some tweaks and changes to the gardens.
Autumn has ebbed and flowed through the gardens since we last spoke, borne on the unstoppable tide of winter.
