Signs of Spring

Technically speaking, spring began over a week ago on 20th March, which is the date of the Spring Equinox. However, West Cornwall has been witnessing the usually accepted signs of spring for quite a while now. 

It's this time of year when we're most thankful for the place we live; when the memories of summer first come flooding back. Just about now, park benches and lawns will be receiving their first tentative visitors armed with newspapers and takeaway lunches, the reckless and over-excited will be digging out flip flops, washing loads will be fluttering in the breeze, and B&Bs will be getting a fresh lick of paint. Before you know it, Jelberts will be open. Happy days indeed.
