Although the official start of autumn is still a few days away, things in Cornwall are certainly feeling more autumnal by the minute. The weather is cooler and crispy leaves are finding their way along our paths. No matter how much we love a Cornish summer there is something about the colours of autumn that we can’t help but get excited about.
It’s time for another bank holiday weekend and there are lots of things to see and do out and about in Cornwall this May. Here are our top picks for enjoying a Cornish May Day.
Our March window theme is Daffodils and window dressers Kathryn and Tara have been busy making lovely Cornish daffodils.
Kathryn and Tara made the daffs using tiny pompoms of wool, attached them onto the end of bamboo sticks and then wrapped tissue paper petals around the pom pom. Each daffodil has its own unique name, which has been stamped onto the luggage tags.
The inspiration for the window came from Ron Scamp, a daffodil breeder in Falmouth. You can read his story here
You can see lots more window displays and craft ideas on Kathryn & Tara’s new Pinterest board: http://www.pinterest.com/seasaltclothing/seasalt-window-displays/
Our January window theme is Seed heads and window dressers, Kathryn and Tara, have been busy on their sewing machines making giant cow parsleys and teasels.
Spring is on the way, and we like nothing better than getting out and about around Cornwall. Walking outside can help keep you healthy and happy, and we have so many beautiful spots around the Cornish coast so there’s no excuse. Here are our tops picks for a picturesque springtime walk.
At the start of the year, you may begin to spot a few seedlings and buds popping up in your garden. However, gardeners at Abbey Gardens on Tresco in the Isles of Scily won’t have to wait until spring to see a fantastic floral display- they have counted more than 255 species of plants flowering this week. What a stunning sight!
Since February this year we have been running a big competition in our shops and on our website to win an amazing holiday for six people to Tresco, Isles of Scilly, worth a whopping £8,000! We are delighted to be able to announce the very lucky winner….drum roll please……
