The first hints of a Cornish Spring 3 / 2 / 2015

Cornish magnolias

Spring always arrives first in Cornwall. It may seem a little premature with snow on the ground to think of Spring yet, but with the sun streaming through our windows I think the most jolliest of all seasons isn’t far away. The beautiful magnolia trees tend to flower in February and March and the daffodils and snow drops are happily emerging from the soil. Many people don’t realise just how early Spring comes in Cornwall compared to the rest of the country.  The Great Gardens of Cornwall website has a bloom counter, their head gardeners ready to tweet the first sign of the magnolia trees opening.

The South West Cornish Path is just stunning this time of year, you can beat the crowds and revel in some really breathtaking views. Walking the Boscastle and Pentargon Waterfall trail (1.7 miles) is a Spring highlight. So much natural beauty, don’t miss it.
