As we live is such a beautiful place at Ednovean Farm, I feel a little bit guilty admitting that at the moment I’m dreaming of a few things about our pre quarantine life.
Cornwall must seem a long way away right now and because I know you must be dreaming too . So I put together my post quarantine wish list, trawling over my snaps of beach days and blue bell walks; coastal walks and garden suppers to share with you. It’s good to dream!
From Sea salt to bluebell scent – my post quarantine wish list!
Dreaming of – Bluebells and National Trust Houses
At the moment the spring flowers conjure memories for me, of walking though ancient woodland to Godolphin House with the sweet delicate scent of Bluebells hanging in the air. It’s oh so tantalizingly close to us of course but not an essential journey but I do wonder if the wisteria is in flower. Check out when the National Trust re-openng
Beaches and Coves
Those spring days spent breathing the salty tang of Cornwall’s sandy beaches, before snuggling in the lea of a sand dune with a hot steaming flask of tea? But on a hot summers’ day, imagine looking down from the coastal footpath to this little hidden cove…..
Well not for us yet this year but it’s good to dream!
I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to wriggle my toes in the warm golden sands, with the prospect of a delicious dip in the oh so inviting salty waters. Or maybe just to sit and watch the rhythm of the sea as it slowly reclaims a beach?
Oh to Explore West Cornwall beyond an hours walk again!
Check out my list of secret beaches and Coves to find somewhere really special to hideaway for the day when travel restrictions end and you will be able to visit Cornwall
Supper in a country pub
An evening drive to a special country pub for supper is one of life’s little forbidden pleasure right now. In West Cornwall there are so many simple and unpretentious spots, there’s a pub for every season.
This is the snug in the Gurnard’s Head near Zennor – the details are in my Little Black book for you.
Impromptu garden suppers to share
Supper in the summer garden is always rather special – particularly if the ingredients are locally grown. Hopefully we’ve got that one taped this year with Charles’s new Potager!
New summer potatoes
New potates and green beans dressed with Pine nuts and home made pesto. A Delicious side dish, served warm in the garden
Thinking of you all
But something I can’t share right now is spending time with our many regular guests who have become our friends. A sunny summer evening in the Ednovean Farm Garden.…..Take care and stay safe – we’re missing you
