May 3 2017 Dinefwr Walk May 3, 2017

No time to waste thinking about cleaning, washing or ironing- the sun was shining  and a walk round Dinefwr to see the bluebells was far more important.

As always on our walks  we seem to attract a four footed  follower- this cat was very friendly and wanted lots of tickle tums!

Further along the path we came to the ice house which was beautifully camouflaged amongst the grass and trees.

We knocked on the door but there was no one in…spooky! No ice either!

Our friend was still trying to get our attention by scrambling up the trees and looking cute!

There were bluebells all  around and their scent was  just delicious. Campions were in abundance together with celandines and  buttercups.DSC00517.jpg

We were on the look out for some deer  and followed the Brown Route through the woodland stopping frequently for views of the castle and Newton House peeping through the trees.

At last, there in the distance was a small herd of the deer just relaxing and enjoying the Spring sunshine- just like us!

The air suddenly lost the lovely aroma from the bluebells to be replaced by the whiff of garlic! Such a pretty sight with the sunbeams shining through the glade.

Not sure what the mallard was telling us  but it wasn’t too polite!

Back home with the sun still shining  the lambs in the field have settled right in  and  have claimed the field as their very own!

      Thank you for your comment Ellen. After talking to the trees I’ll have a chat with you on my next walk! It was lovely to visit you at 139 this week – it’s a wonderful cafe and I know it will do well.
