After all the sunny weather we’ve had it was disappointing to find it was a cloudy day for our Walking Well Walk around Carreg Cennen Castle. I’ve missed some walks as I’ve been on a wonderful holiday to Canada to visit the family…not many people don’t know that as I’ve told everyone about the visit!!
Anyway the walk took a new route and the views all around were spectacular. The lanes were brimming full of wild flowers and the colours of the campion, cow parsley, bluebells, stitchwort and more blended together like a beautiful piece of embroidery.
There were plenty of signs to follow as long as you knew which path you were on and where you were going!
Philip pointed out an old track that had once led up to a quarry. It’s good to have someone on a walk that can show you interesting things that otherwise you’d miss.
The castle view kept appearing seemingly in a different place each time…quite disorienting!
As we completed our circular walk we tiptoed carefully across a newly planted field watching to see that the scarecrows didn’t chase after us!
A glimpse of the castle through the farm yard leading us to the cafe where our coffees and cakes were awaiting. Thank you Ann and Philip for the lovely walk.
We have enjoyed some days of really lovely weather but we did have one night of frost which meant many plants in the garden suffered! The wisteria was one of the many casualties but happily lots survived to bring colours and interest to the garden
Orangey flowers brighten any border.
White flowers make me smile.
Bright limey green lifts the spirits.
Pink is heavenly.
Red is brave.
Tall is glamorous.
But Roses are just beautiful.
Too many photos already but I may have mentioned once or twice recently that we went to Canada to see our family…so a few photos of my precious family in Vancouver.
Our Canada geese family, at home, are growing up too!
Thank you for reading.
