Cool Cornish wild strawberries.

Use Cornish wild strawberries wisely.

My back garden is full of Cornish wild strawberries, aka alpine strawberries, and they are delicious. I freeze individual wild strawberries and keep for cooling drinks with instead of ice. It works an absolute treat and taste good too. This time of year, an afternoon glass of Pimm’s or Sangria is beautifully cooled with delightful berries. These were not the drinks of the day in Poldark times though, more like Mother’s ruin, aka gin. You may have noticed Poldark back on TV in the UK. The splendid scenery and beauty of the Cornish county is on display shamelessly. It is a joy to view.

Cornish hedgerows.

Along the normally narrow roads we encounter honeysuckle everywhere spreading a sweet scent. The Cornish roads appear even more narrow at the moment as bushes, hedges, branches and trees have spurted in growth with our benign weather and occasional rain.

From coves and coast we spot sailing boats in the Celtic Sea, aka the Channel and the Atlantic. At sea you get a different view of the coastline and can visit coves that may not be reachable on land.

This coming weekend there is embarrassingly much going on in Cornwall. What with Mazey Day in Penzance’s Golowan Festival and funfair all weekend to Sea-shanty weekend in Falmouth just to keep it local. Stay safe on and off the roads in Cornwall and enjoy the mesmerising scenic views to be had on your visit.
