February 27 Visit to Cardiff and Signs of Spring February 27, 2012

We had a  glimpse of spring at the weekend…the sun shone, some flowers appeared  and the frogs started croaking!

We caught the 7.56 train from Llangadog to Cardiff. It’s a super journey especially on a sunny morning when there are no leaves on the tree to spoil the views. There were lambs in the fields, sunlight on the estuaries, magnificent monster installations at the steel works and miles and miles of zipping countryside in blurred colours to glimpse before disappearing into rays of light in the train windows. 
 We walked around the outside of  the marvellous Millennium Stadium with fingers crossed that the rugby match in the afternoon in Twickenham would end with a Welsh win!

Our wish for a Welsh win was granted! Hooray!

 
 A visit to the National Museum was next on our list to see the Scott of the Antarctic Exhibition and the exhibition to mark the Queen’s Jubilee. Both were brilliant.

Our grandson loved the woolly mammoths too!

 
Back home the frogs had been working hard and the pond was filled with their spawn.

Weather warming up today but rainy again but the signs of Spring are definitely there and the frogs are still croaking!
