Corners and backstreets
Morning all. We had a day in Hay-on-Wye yesterday (no surprise there then!) I wandered round with my camera taking photos of the backstreets I never normally photograph. Here they are. Enjoy. Sorry for lack of words but it's my birthday today and I have a list of "fings to do" . . . I shall also remember poet Edward Thomas who died on this day a century ago, and also my mother-in-law AND her brother, who also both died on my birthday.
Here I was trying to show how Hay sits in the landscape.
A lovely old house. This would suit us . . .
A puss-cat watching the world go by.
It was SO hard to get a photo without a car in it somewhere . . . or a bollard, in this case!
Addyman books on the right hand corner. One of my favourite shops for old horsey books.
Above and below. The overflow store room for The End. I think this bull's head is being saved for Hay Festival Week in May.
Below: the owner's cat, on guard duty!
I will take T here when she is down with us next week. All sorts of goodies in there. (I liked the sign which says "Best Quality Old Tat" . . .
A tea shop, showcasing its "equipment".
It was lovely wandering through this little cobbled pathway to the cottages beyond.
Finally, some colour on a largely grey day.
