A Cornish lifetime After their marriage, my parents’ first holiday together was to Cornwall – it was 1953 and a real leap in the dark, staying at a tiny run-down cottage in Lanreath belonging to someone’s aunt. It rained constantly for the first three days and, with no car, they had only the local buses to get around.

But they fell in love with the county that year, and it was a love that lasted a lifetime. I inherited that love, and if you feel the same, do have a look at page 10.…

3 of the best... cornish oddities

THE CHEESEWRING This celebrated tor on Bodmin Moor seems to defy physics – a pile of weathered granite slabs, the larger ones at the top. CARN EUNY A well-preserved Iron Age village, it has a stone-walled underground passage called a fogou, but no one knows why. GWENNAP PIT John Wesley preached at this natural amphitheatre near Redruth. Its 12 ‘rings’ can seat 1,500 people, but it never fills with water!

Look out for lambs, a special night sky – and don’t forget Mother’s Day! Look out for baby lambs Get into the spirit of spring by spotting newborn lambs as they gambol through fields. Every year, 16 million ewes give birth around the UK. Grazing sheep play a vital role in maintaining meadows by keeping weeds at bay, so ensuring wild flowers thrive. You’ll find them in National Trust grounds across the UK, from piebald Jacob sheep in Devon to rare Portland lambs born with russet red coats in Derbyshire. Search places to see lambs in your area at nationaltrust.org.uk ADORABLE ANIMATRONICS Know an elderly person who’s in need of company? A ‘robo pet’ could be the ideal low-maintenance lockdown friend.

3 jobs to do in the garden

1 Sew herbs indoors Create a kitchen garden by sowing fennel and dill seeds under cover. Direct sow chervil, sage and chives, and bed in pots of thyme, mint and rosemary. 2 Plant for pollinators Give insects a helping hand by introducing spring-flowering plants.

Empty out all plants and pressure-wash both inside and out in readiness for busy springtime planting.…

letter of the week

NEEDLE THERAPY I had a stroke last January. Soon after, I joined a local young stroke group and we now meet via Zoom.

Here is a photo of the completed cardigan – I had enough wool left over to knit a hat, mitts and a long scarf. Thank you for helping in my recovery. Ardene Smyth, Belfast…
