Saturday…with a Cornish catch-up

Filed Under : Cornwall - Spring

IMG_3590 There’s something so lovely about Spring in Cornwall, so I thought I’d share a little reflection from our Easter holiday last week…IMG_3589We 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 daffodilsIMG_3516 IMG_3518 they just really make you want to be right in the middle of them!IMG_3519 IMG_3506 IMG_3517 IMG_3512 I didn’t pick any from the fields, but I did find some unfortunate beheadings which I thought I could save…IMG_3530 …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…IMG_3553 IMG_3325We took a trip to Mousehole on one of our days to meet some friends, passing the beautiful marshes at Marazion on the way…
IMG_3024 …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…IMG_3571 IMG_3569 …and of course everywhere in West Cornwall is adorned with local daffs at the moment…IMG_3568 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!IMG_3016 IMG_3014 IMG_3012 IMG_3017 IMG_3006 IMG_3020 IMG_3013 IMG_3019So I’ve decided that Spring in Cornwall is not just lovely…but completely rejuvenating!

    You have managed to brighten up my day from all the way on the other side of the world 🙂 Thank you so much, your work is inspirational! Sorry to hear about the wee dog-bicycle incident, but glad to hear there was tea and cake on the other side of it. Best wishes from New Zealand!
