Last Thursday afternoon, Tam and I drove up the valley a little way and parked up for a short walk down to the Church of St Davids' at Llanynis. It was ok in the shade but walking in full sun was an ask for me and I was absolutely melting.
Anyway, enjoy the photos. Sorry this is a make-weight post but I'm still getting over the Bug-From-Yesterday which knocked me sideways - I was asleep most of the day, slight temperature on and off and despite being asleep for hours in the day, slept deeply all night. I am glad to say I feel more with-it now, and Tam and I went to Brecon for the shopping as I needed to go to B&M for cheap fat balls, so we got the shopping at Aldi and a few bits from Morrisons. It was nice to get out - went different routes there and back as usual. BIG black clouds piling up as we neared home - got everything unpacked and then the heavens opened and it chucked it down. One of us will have to brave the ladder tomorrow and unblock the gutters though as big hillocks of moss from the roof had dried off and fallen into the gutter. I looked at them this past week and thought, must get those out . . .
Above and below: the pond we walked past on our way to the Church. There were hundreds of tiny froglets and toadlets leaving the pond and we had to pick our way through for fear of squashing them. Unfortunately a little further on beside the river, there were also horse flies and Tam got bitten 3 times, through her stretch trousers.
Oh yes, the dead body. It was away up the field, and I was convinced, from the lane, that this was a dead body - someone crossing via a footpath - and I was worried because it was such a hot day and if someone had collapsed there, they would be in a bad way (or dead). Tam was equally convinced I was a sandwich short of a picnic! Seems that she was right . . . I think it's a fally-down scarecrow!
