Time to set off again on another Walking Well Walk…the 3 W’s …add a fourth and fifth this time With Wellies! It was dry when we set off from Llandeilo station across the swing bridge but the clouds did open later to give us all a bit of a soaking. After the downpours we’ve had lately the ground was particularly soggy but the walk as usual was hugely enjoyable.
Over the swing bridge, which crosses the river Towy, it actually swings quite a lot!
I was delighted he didn’t want to accompany us on our walk! He did make me walk much faster though through the field!
Lots of interesting things to see on our walk. Hope the Post Office never modernise the old post boxes especially these Victorian ones! We continued through the fields up a couple of fairly steep hills and joined Tregib Woods where we descended through a wonderful ‘proper’ woodland until we had completed our circular trek back to the swing bridge.
Of course every good walk should end with a coffee and cake! This was our first visit to The Yard in Llandeilo , where we received a very warm welcome and enjoyed some very tasty veggie eats and yummy cakes and coffee. We’ll definitely be back!
To keep the weight off after eating all those tasty dishes a spot of gardening was called for and after watching the farmer remove the hay off our field I started cutting back the summer growth to make the garden less jungle like!
Our new back door and ‘old’ front door.
The crab apples are looking beautiful and ripening up nicely for the birds to eat!
Under our niger bird feeder there’s the usual soggy mess of wasted seed but every year some of the seed germinates and the loveliest of yellow flowers bloom on 7foot high plants!
Rufus was very cautious approaching the hay bales and wondered where they had suddenly appeared from!
All the visitors to Lletty Cottage this summer have been a pleasure to meet and we have enjoyed their company but this was a totally unexpected visitor last weekend when we were preparing the cottage! It flew in through the door and knocked over all the items on the table as it tried to escape through the window. Jim was very brave and captured it in his hands before he let it fly away. Easiest bird photo I’ve taken in ages!!
