Orchids in the Ninfarium Aberglasney Gardens

Our 7 year old grandson has been staying with us for the past week so time has just disappeared! It’s wonderful to see the world again through young eyes  and appreciate how fortunate we are to live in such a beautiful part of the world.

There was one particular lamb he really liked!

O2016 april 259-1He thought lambs were fun until they all started chasing him!

One of the ewes has one black lamb and one white lamb  but we have never seen a lamb with one black leg before!!


Our garden is definitely showing signs of Spring and I haven’t even completed all the cutting down and clearing up after Winter yet!

Back to ‘normal’ today  after our grandson left for home and a visit to Aberglasney Gardens where the spring borders are  filling up beautifully with tulips, hyacinths and primroses. The meadow was full of fritillaries  and the bluebells were just bringing a shade of blue to the wood- all just perfect.


DSC03029On the drive home through Llandeilo there was a traffic jam  whilst we all had to wait for the passing of a number of amazing  horse drawn carriages…can only happen  here!

  3. The flowers are very beautiful, and the lambs are very cute, what more could one ask for in a post? Loved it!

    Thank you! I could keep taking photos of the lambs all day as they are so photogenic and up to all kinds of mischief and they are much easier to snap than your amazing bird photos!
