Enjoying what's on our doorstep . . .
Keith and I took advantage of a dry afternoon to take a walk across Dinefwr Castle Deer Park again today. Words will be few - you will have to rely on the photos to amuse you, as I am being summoned.
A view of the castle in the distance as we walked across the parkland from the Rugby Club car park.
Snowdrops in full bloom in the paddock near the stable yard.
We called this tree the Polo Tree as it had a hole right through the middle of it!
The castle again from the track through the Deer Park.
Mossy fallen giants.
Out of the woods, and round by the big pond, where we found (see below) the first frogspawn of the season. UPDATE: 20.2.17. Frogspawn in our wildlife pond this morning . . .
Above and below - it is very wet woodland, with this little stream permeating the area, and Yellow Flag Irises starting growth for the season ahead.
If you stand still long enough, you will get covered in moss! An old wall at the side of another arm of the stream.
This looked rather like a sundial, with its dried out rays.
Above and below: some of the history of the Castle and the area.
