First daffodils of the season bloom spectacularly early in Cornwall
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
With Cornwall's warmer climate during the autumn and winter, daffodils generally bloom earlier in the county than in the rest of the country, though they do not generally make their first appearance until just before Christmas. Usually, however, daffodils don't sprout until March or April, and their blooming is typically associated with the beginning of spring.
The first Cornish daffodils of the season were spotted at Clowance Estate & Country Club in Praze-an-Beeble, situated near Camborne, who were shocked to see the small yellow flowers sprouting in their gardens before the winter had even begun.
General manager Michelle Kirk, who made the discovery, said: "In Cornwall we get them earlier than the rest of the country, but unless they are grown in a greenhouse I wouldn't have expected to see them so soon."
There's not only the early bloom of daffodils which makes Cornwall's nature so wonderful in winter - the county also welcomes a host of wildlife, with some its untouched landscapes also being at their most beautiful.
