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.
Autumn has not stolen in on softly padded velvet paws this year. No, this year our autumn marched into our lives, laced with gales and fogs. This has been an autumn to send the temperatures spinning and the sea into a frenzy of rolling waves and spray.
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.
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.
Oh how we long for spring to arrive! In in this February’s diary I chart its progress with lots of snaps taken around the Ednovean Farm Garden
