Yesterday we had sunshine, and it was far too good to waste, so I set off on a walk up the valley a little way, not intending to go far. Here our some local lambs - that big one is a real bruiser!
The red farmhouse on the hill. I think these folk have knitters knit some very upmarket jumpers which go on sale in airport shops. They had a visit from HRH once (I think it was Princess Ann) - arriving by helicopter of course.
Above and below: looking up the valley. The mist/low cloud was thinking about coming down again, as you can see.
Then I thought I would walk just a little way up the hill, slowly, to get a better photo at the first gateway. . .
The view back down the valley . . . The light was just lovely on the fields.
Above: this is how Wales would have looked in days gone by - trees everywhere.
The Italianate tower which is all that remains of the very grand Pant Glas house which was built around the turn of the 17th into 18th C. It is a holiday village now.
Above: I was glad I hadn't cut across THAT field! Slurry tanker at work . . .
The lane towards home.
Back tomorrow with some recipes.
