I'll put up the rest of the photos from the Exhibition (and there are a lot more lovely things I didn't take photos of), and their attributions, and then do a resume of today.

Volunteering Part II, and a visit to a Museum
Tuesday, 29 June 2021
Volunteering again - Part I
Last Friday I volunteered at Minerva Arts Centre in Llanidloes. It was where the quilt exhibition was held last month . This month it was the turn of 5 talented ladies Gatehouse Textiles INGENIUM exhibition. Part II posting about the exhibition will be tomorrow. They were invited by The Quilt Association. Not many people through, sadly, but the weather wasn't brilliant so perhaps that put folks off travelling. Or they were waiting for market day on the Saturday.
Anyway, not much in the way of words, but enjoy the wonderful craftsmanship.

Lovely afternoon in the Elan Valley
I don't know what Blogger is doing - it has changed the format for putting up a fresh photo and instead of having a lovely big header photo, I now have a minisicule one! I will have to see if I can change it, but all attempts so far have failed.

The garden is slowly taking shape
Not quite sunrise this morning (which is 4.53 a.m.), but this was taken around 6 a.m. and looking across towards Llanelwedd, when it was still misty and just starting to glow and the sun dazzled me so much through the bathroom window, I couldn't see what photo I was taking!
I ventured down our track to the lane to collect the recycyling boxes. The sheeps were under the tree and leapt to their feet as I came near.
The distant hills were still milky with sleep, but promised a hot day (and it is now).
Sorry for the power lines in all of them - can't be avoided.
Our next door neighbour across the track was having a snooze . . .
Progress on the Paul's Himlayan Musk as more flowers open. It's on the top of the bank and quite difficult to get a closer photo really.
A work in progress. This side lawn was just SO boring, and I needed to plant a border of perennials. Below, on a medium pollen day, I extended the four feet or so already dug and planted, by a further 6 feet, and planted another dozen plants. It will need widening, so I can put some more plants in, staggered, so it isn't a straight line of plantings. I've sown some Pot Marigolds down the back today, and some other annuals will be sprinkled about to give it more colour. I will see if I can dig another foot or so of turf up and plant the Rudbeckia which is in a pot. It's a High Pollen day though, so I don't want to push my luck too much.
Finally, below, my current reading, which I can recommend as hard to put down and a great read. This is the 2nd of her books I've read, the other being The Shadowy Horses, and equally good.
