Monday Morning


It rained ALL day yesterday, then it rained ALL night last night, then miraculously at exactly 7.45this morning it stopped!!


Arthur arrives at 8am each morning to crack on with the work, and after a break last week while we waited for the building supplies to be delivered .... 


... like this little lot ....


... and these reinforcing mesh things (I know I'm so technical!!) ...


... this morning he's back at the coal face.

The little digger you see behind the stone mountain and to the left of the earth mountain is his tool of choice today as he merrily chips away at more of the hillside.


At the other end of the paddock while walking with the dogs I stopped to drink in the luscious greenness of everywhere, it's so much more calming than soil and mountains of stone.


I couldn't resist taking a panoramic shot from the same position.  I love how these shots make the hollows on the grass dip down to make little green valleys.  A totally different perspective.


Everything is springing back to life, only a couple of weeks ago this was merely a stick in the ground now it is full of leaves and surrounded by weeds of every description.  I think it's time to fence off the new nut trees, hang a gate on the paddock gate posts and see about getting some borrowed sheep to graze our luscious grass.

  1. Gorgeous! Hubby and I have a trip to North Wales booked over the summer. Can't wait, as it's only in the past few years I have not had family connections in the area enabling to visit regularly. I miss it!

  3. Wow, you have transformed the hillside! It looks wonderful. I love all the lush green. We had a heck of a winter here. I marvel each day when I look outside and see green grass,flowers and leaves on the trees.

    1. I hate what we have done to the hillside nearest the house, but once building work is finished we can concentrate of making it look good again.

    1. Funny you should say that John, our last couple of meals at both the cafe AND the Hayloft have been very unremarkable. And in the cafe they had a tuna jacket potato listed as suitable for vegetarians!!

      We're giving it a miss for a while. Tal Goed nurseries do lovely food if you're looking for somewhere to eat round here. Back down the road before Bodnant if you're coming from the A55.
