Merry Christmas . . .

. . . and we've had a bit of rain.

This is the Towy Valley looking Eastwards towards Black Mountain.  As you can see, the flood plain is awash . . .

If you ever wondered why castles are on hills, Dryslwyn Castle gives you one good reason today!

I took about 30 photos whilst we were out, and will share them with you later on.

Meanwhile, we have been busy in the kitchen, and I made a good Arctic Roll with home made raspberry jam, and some mince pies, which were rescued just as they were looking just like they'd been on holiday to Barbados.  T made preserved orange peel so the kitchen smells really Christmassy.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and an enjoyable festive period.


  1. What amazing floods! So much water you can only just see where some of the river`s meanders are meant to be. It always amazes me how the watermeadow flowers of summer still reappear every year after floods like these.

    Hoping that you all have a very happy Christmas. I`m sure you will with all that delicious, traditional Christmas food!

  2. Thanks my dear. Glad that Flakey's problem has come to light and is curable. Have a lovely Christmas.

  3. Wishing you and your family a most Joyous Holiday Season, BB. Your photos remind me of our little splash we had here in September. Glad you are safe.
    Much happiness to you.

  4. I hope you and you and your family are having a wonderful Christmas :)

  5. You too! Those images of the flood water are terrifying - I feel lucky to be up so high. x
