Snapshots of an Easter.

Ages since I've popped by and yet again I have missed this little space. Holiday time is so full of good things and yet this is one thing I cannot always make time for in the family bedlam that is the Easter holidays. Never mind, here are some snapshots of a Cornish Easter - well, the one we had anyhow. There was wonderful sunshine and trips to the beach to jump in icy waves.


Peering in rockpools and looking at sea life

Games with big sister with the breeze whipping up the girls as much as the waves.

There were jugs and cups and vases of flowers all grown in our own garden and perfuming the whole house with their beautiful perfume.

The cutting patch in the front garden is coming to an end but a new one has been planted in the back garden ready to keep us going all through summer. I have grown to like these strange orange edged daffodils as long as they are popped into the bottle with a few other types to soften the glow.

Even Tiger-Lily enjoyed sniffing the pretty blooms.

And then there were trips to the beach

Jumping in icy waves

Playing with big sis...

You get the picture

I'll leave it there for now but there was also chocolate (of course), huge meals, sitting in the courtyard, family visiting, gardening .. Hmm, I said I would leave it didn't I! x


  1. It always looks about 10 degrees warmer there than here - but I bet that sea was cold!

  2. Gorgeous pictures Pipany - your sea looks so much bluer then ours.

  11. What a happy time you all had. It was rather chilly here in Sussex but we went on the beach briefly on saturday in watery sun. Only thing I can pick in our garden is forget- me-nots. I just don't get around to planting my cutting patch. Hope the sun is still shining for you. Karen X

  12. Just perfect, so lovely to catch up Pipany, and glad I am not the only one who has not been around for a few weeks. The photos are gorgeous and capture a magical childhood filled with fun and laughter, enjoy x

  13. Ah, dear Pipany.... I was just reading about your quiet time in the garden and enjoying the pictures of it.... the tulips.... remember tulips??? =] Reading about Easter - I can never figure out how to fit in Blogging during holidays - and that seems like a super fun time to post! But, what I love is coming here and looking at your children playing in the waves and your post are like that - so soothing and I can hear the echo of family laughter (sorry, getting poetic - heh, heh) and I can smell dinner cooking and the sizzle of that pork roast. Your posts totally feel like listening to the rhythm of the waves - so pleasant!

    Lovely wishes for everything good to you and your family!
