The road to Hay-on-Wye
As our daughter is here with us for a week, we had our usual pilgrimage to Hay-on-Wye yesterday. The weather at home was cool and threatening rain. Apparently at Hay, it was going to be 27 degrees. Hmmph I thought, is it?, and put one of my smarter cotton tops on and lightweight trousers. It was not my best decision of the day . . . Here is the road to Hay, between Sennybridge and Brecon, and with Pen-y-Fan in the distance.

The Rosebay Willowherb is beautiful right now - swathes of it across the countryside.
Countryside just outside Brecon.
A very misty Hay Bluff in the distance.
Clouds lifted, but the sun went behind them . . .
We arrived! And boy, was it HOT! 27 degrees. Yup . . . And I had dressed far too warmly . . .
More later. Thank you all for your kind words about Stella.
