Easter Sunday

If we'd been up very early this morning we could have attended the 6.15 sunrise service up on the moor.   I was awake in time to walk up but it was misty so we stayed at home and listened to church bells ringing out around the town to celebrate Easter Sunday.
It's been a glorious spring day, the first this year that we've thrown open the balcony doors and enjoyed sitting out. 
When I'm not relishing our beautiful view I do like the feeling of being up amongst the chimney pots in our own private space.
And for those of you wondering if I'm missing my garden, I still have plenty to admire without the work or responsibility.  
 Lovely daffs on our walk to town
 and the gorse out on the moor
The town is very colourful, we get judged very soon for the Britain in Bloom contest so everything is extra smart.  I did think today the standard is better than I could ever have achieved and though it is a little regimented for me it's all very colourful and well tended.

We sat beside the bandstand and enjoyed an ice cream whilst feeling sorry for all the holiday weekend visitors in town who have to leave this evening.  


  1. It seems to have been lovely yesterday, all over the world. Bright and breezy here.

  2. Yesterday was beautiful here too. Your town looks like it's ready for judging.

  3. It is a little staged I suppose, but it's also really colourful and cheerful too. I'm surprised the judging is so early in the season tbh, I thought Summer would have been prime time. We have a lot to do in our garden but it's been a cold Spring, and when it's managed to warm up it's rained! I do have seedlings growing inside though, something to look forward to.

  4. Enjoyed hot cross buns on Easter morning while the bells were ringing for the local church service. Spring is definitely much further along down here in Cornwall. Saw bluebells today.

  5. We enjoyed an Easter Egg hunt and millions of daffodils at Castle Howard. It's been so good to see the sunshine. Ros

  6. It's such a colourful time of year, isn't it? Lovely. We've had some misty early mornings, too - but the last few days, they've given way to beautiful sunshine later on.

  7. Windows and the kitchen door open here, too. Good luck with the BiB judging.
