"In this landscape are the footprints of Saints and the memories of Merlin." A.R.O.S. for today . . .
. . . Well, sort of. We could see Merlin's Hill, so that's good enough for me. My eldest daughter and I decided to blow the cobwebs away and have a lovely walk around Colomendy, and those fabulous views across the Towy valley down towards Carmarthen town.
Looking up the next valley over, towards Horeb.
Down towards Colomendy with the view unfolding at our feet.
The many-hilled Towy valley.
On the East-facing banks there were plenty of Foxgloves which had survived the recent snow. A promise of things to come.
If you look carefully (you will probably have to click on and enlarge) you will see the first tentative pussy paw buds from some Willow in the hedgerow - a shame someone cut the hedge .
Climbing back in the direction of home.
The Big House in this area, seen through the trees. Grander than ours - but nothing like as old!
Below: looking down on our house, and the farm beyond. Better than the aerial view . . .
