Autumn days at Ednovean Farm

The end of the day and the house looks mellow in the golden light of autumn

With a swirl of falling leaves the autumn days have come to Ednovean Farm and yet the sun’s warmth still hints of summer. The countryside has mellowed to softer autumn shades and the bracken on the heathland that follow the coastline have turned to a crisp bronze to contrast with the twinkling blue sea. This month the first of the Atlantic storms came in to pound along the beaches with relentless force, sending wet suit clad surfers off, to bob in the sea waiting for the perfect wave.

At Ednovean Farm last week, we had a very special guest in Classical dressage trainer Jenny Rolfe and Spanish Stallion Danilon and I enjoyed a couple of dressage lessons and the cats snoozed on in the autumn sunshine – aren’t we lucky with the weather!! Read on for my latest albums of Ednovean and photos of this morning in Cornwall. Continue reading “Autumn days at Ednovean Farm” »

October’s blue seas in Cornwall

Blue seas in Mounts bay from the coastal footpath

Mounts Bay yesterday with the bluest of seas and St Michael’s Mount as the pearl

We followed the bluest of seas along the coastal path yesterday – Mounts bay looked so enchanting that we couldn’t help but pause and just look out over the bay with a view that stretched from Perranuthnoe all the way to Penzance across the tranquil water.

St Michael’s Mount is always the pearl in Mounts Bay’s crown and never more so than yesterday so I thought I’d post a few extra photos taken on our coastal walk in Cornwall. Continue reading “October’s blue seas in Cornwall” »

A summer snap looking towards Perranuthnoe and Penzance

Looking back towards Perranuthnoe from the coastal footpath

This morning I thought I’d brighten the morning by sharing a summer snap taken on a walk from here at Ednovean farm when we walked along the coastal footpath east of Perranuthnoe. The last photos I shared were taken way back in April so I thought I was time for an update!

We walked along to Stackhouse Cove with a picnic the other day on Charles’s birthday – it is just so relaxing to sit on a silent cove and listen to the sea.  Of course there was a short swim (brrr!) to our chosen beach but it was a wonderfully relaxing way to spend the afternoon.

I slow down for butterflies!

Butterfly on a garden benchAs I drove out of “our” lane yesterday I realised that I slow down for butterflies as I watched as a tiny blue butterfly flit across the lane, in that curious, undulating flight that butterflies do and disappear safely into neighbouring gardens. I was on the way for our daily B&B shop in Penzance when I saw the tiny insect and stopped to realise just how  lucky we are to live off of the main road, along the little unmade track that leads to the small hamlet of houses at Ednovean. The peaceful seclusion away from the traffic and hubbub of the towns is a perfect place to let the dance of the Butterfly lead you towards spring. Continue reading “I slow down for butterflies!” »

A moment of magic

Sunset From Ednovean Farm bed and breakfast overlooking St Michael's Mount

The sun setting beyond from Ednovean farm’s garden overlooking St Michael’s Mount

As we start another week here in Cornwall I thought you might enjoy seeing one of those moments of magic when the sun sinks down below the horizon and we slip towards the night. This weekend I managed to race across our lawn just in time to catch these two pictures of a gorgeous sunset over Mounts Bay as the sun sank behind St Michael’s Mount. I always love the effect that the palms that edge our lawn make silhouetted in the dusk and so i thought i would share it in a tiny blog tonight Continue reading “A moment of magic” »

This morning in Cornwall

Ednovean Farm view to St Michaels Mount and Penzance

Looking across Mounts Bay beyond St Michael’s Mount to Penzance and Newlyn

This morning is just too beautiful not to share and so I’m putting a quick mini blog up just of the view. I took this snap from my kitchen this morning looking down over the gardens to St Michaels Mount with the tide right out by the look of it too.

St Michael’s Mount will be open this morning with Tuesday at 1100am. and again at 2.00p.m. From the 15th of March it will open from 10.30 – 5.00 daily (except Saturdays) It looks so lovely out there I wish I could go.  Continue reading “This morning in Cornwall” »
