I’ve come to treasure the changing face of autumn in the garden – the mellow shades of gold and russet that deck the leaves, the low subtle light and the ever-changing skies. Now is the time for planning a little bit for the promise of warmer days to come when winter gives way to spring, […]
Ednovean Farm's garden throughout the year

The clock of the seasons is ever turning, bringing the mists of autumn to gently shroud the garden and with it the morning dew to spangle the lawns. With the change of the seasons the scent of the sea has come back to us at Ednovean, along with the rhythmic music of the waves to […]
