We had to go to Cardigan yesterday to collect some stock from the Unit. We took the shorter route home, cross-country, stopping at Cenarth to take some photos of the river, which was pretty full after all the rain which had accompanied Storm Diana.
Of course, it is regularly MUCH worse, and certainly was a couple of months ago when we had tremendous flooding locally. I think the bridge at Cenarth was shut for a while due to trees piling up against it.
Up on the ravine overlooking the river, I am pretty sure this is a Spindle tree - they like Limestone, and this one had obviously found a safe niche here. When the bright pink seed pods split open they reveal orange seeds. I used to see them regularly when I lived outside Salisbury and walked my dogs along the Shaftesbury ("Shaston") Drove.
Finally, the ever-increasing wind farm in Brechfa Forest. These were all turning well in the strong winds.
I had to go back to the Doctor's yet again today as I had a chest infection and am now on anti-b's and steroids (the latter for 3 to 5 days). Hopefully they shouldn't disturb my sleep pattern too much. I have a nice pile of books to get through - I bought 5 by Peter James when we were in Wotton on Monday and I have read the first already.
