This spring at Ednovean Farm has been busy times for us. Just trying to fit in all of those “Dreckly*” jobs for our opening date of the 17th of May, needs a spread sheet now!
By mid May we’ll be in the final chapter of springtime and Cornwall will have almost turned a page. So join me for my final impressions of spring.
A spring walk from Ednovean Farm
There is one little spring ritual I always make time for though. A walk along the coastal footpath from here towards Cudden point. True we must haves scheduled in the only overcast days for weeks. But a walk to the sea, is a walk to the sea and in springtime it’s a particularly relished treat.
Springtime on the coastal footpath
In late spring the vanilla scented yellow gorse, mingles with the white froth of the May trees with a haze of wild flowers underfoot. What is not to love about springtime in Cornwall!?
As we approached Stackhouse cove, the sea pinks clinging to the slate ledges were dancing bravely above the deliciously salty scented waters.
We even met a friend en route, fresh from watching the Basking Sharks below Cudden Point to add to our adventure!
These days we scrabble down the cliffs with a little more care with our picnic. But the familiar sheltered rocky platforms always have a sheltered spot and we found a wonderful vantage point to watch the seal watching the whale – I think the seal had the best view though!
Our weather this spring for Ednovean Farm
Cornwall had glorious blue skies and seas for what felt like months, in a spring that saw just 6% of the average rainfall. Fortunately for us Ednovean was set deep into the hillside, centuries ago facing westward over Mounts Bay. So the vicious easterly and northerly winds have sailed over our heads.
Interiors Spring cleaning and updating
Meanwhile ready for a busy summer ahead, we’ve crafted two separate breakfast rooms for socially distanced breakfast. I bet that after so much effort to keep our B&B relevant and cosy, the Covid measures are bound to be discontinued. A bit like the famous piece of bread falling butter side down!
I hope to tell you about the new breakfast rooms very soon, they’re as different as chalk and cheese.
One’s formal with Victorian Breakfast table and a nod to Bloomsbury and the other contemporary country, with terracotta and wicker.
But today, all of the furniture from the Blue Bedroom is piled in one ready for the carpet fitter tomorrow! Spring cleaning with a vengeance.
P.S. I’m waiting for the final picture tally to finish this room!
I can’t wait to show the changes to you in my next blog. I promise you it’s been a busy spring preparing our Bed and Breakfast at Ednovean farm!
