It’s a month since the last blog entry! Not enough time to write all about the happenings around the place as looking after the garden seems to take for ages!
This hot weather has been lovely for everyone visiting Lletty Cottage- visitors have enjoyed walking in the Brecon Beacons and seeing all the waterfalls, visiting all the castles ( Carreg Cennen, Dynevor, Dryslwyn- favourites) and the beaches ( everyone loves Aberaeron and New Quay) and of course visiting the gardens- Aberglasney and The National Botanic.
Last night we went to Aberglasney to see Sense and Sensibility- it was wonderful sitting in the gardens enjoying a glass of wine with the birds singing, the bats cruising and watching a Jane Austen play- bliss.
The Ragged Robin flowered in June. It’s Latin name is flos- cuculi meaning cuckoo- flower- it usually flowers when you can hear the cuckoo- but this year we didn’t hear one! Plants with ‘robin’ in their names are often linked in folklore with goblins and evil. ( Book of the Countryside)
As all the local farmers are haymaking- the kites appear overhead to see if they can find their suppers!
