There’s something so lovely about Spring in Cornwall, so I thought I’d share a little reflection from our Easter holiday last week…We hired bikes and my son and I went biking around the country lanes and I just couldn’t get over the joy of coming across fields of daffodils… they just really make you want to be right in the middle of them! I didn’t pick any from the fields, but I did find some unfortunate beheadings which I thought I could save… …and I collected a few daisies, buttercups and blue periwinkle from the verges to make them feel at home, along with wild garlic ( or rather three cornered leek! ) from the garden… We took a trip to Mousehole on one of our days to meet some friends, passing the beautiful marshes at Marazion on the way…
…and the sea at Newlyn.
However en route a tiny dog ran out in front of me and having to break way to quickly I ended up flying over the handlebars!!
Luckily I was only bruised ( thank goodness for a light bike! )…but a cup of tea and cake in Mousehole at The Rockpool Cafe certainly was an effective revival remedy… …and of course everywhere in West Cornwall is adorned with local daffs at the moment… I took these next few photos a couple of weeks ago when I popped down for a weekend…and this field was so uplifting after over 7 hours in the car! So I’ve decided that Spring in Cornwall is not just lovely…but completely rejuvenating!
