We had a glorious afternoon out on Sunday.
Yes, I took that picture, it's not bad my little point it and click digital camera is it ... and it's not a 'trick' shot of any kind, the garden does really slope down to the central path like that :-)
We nipped along the A55 to Anglesey and the lovely Plas Cadnant, as mentioned and linked to on the last post. The weather was with us and although it was a touch chilly in the cold breeze whenever the sun appeared from behind the clouds it was wonderfully warm.
The gardens were beautiful and the woodland walk down to the River Cadnant, although steep and shingly was just lovely. We stayed long enough to treat ourselves to lunch and coffee and had a thoroughly relaxing few hours.
And we've decided to start ourselves a little photo challenge ... everywhere we go you will get Lovely Hubby sleeping (he does it so well) .....
... and you will get me peeping.
This has been inspired by previous photos.
Of course it all started with this one ....me and my cabbage.
... and then continued here ....a day out at Bodnant Gardens last year, yes, he really is fast asleep on the lawn in this position.
Then there was some sleeping at Maenan House,
closely followed by peeping at Maenan House
So we have decided that when we remember you will be subjected to more of the same ;-)
Plas Cadnant is also called 'the Hidden Gardens' and while we were there we got a Facebook comment and picture from my son Simon ...
Si Wright Haha I think my house has one of them 'hidden gardens' as I've never found it lol. My yard resembles a building site too at the min as next door are having their house re-dashed. Hope you have a nice weekend.x
Meanwhile back at home the brickies were still laying blocks, they laid them until they were all used up. 13 stacks of blocks and 13 bags of cement.
The number thirteen crops up so many times in everything we do.
Now we are awaiting the arrival of the first load of concrete to infill between the two walls of blocks. This will cover the heavy duty mesh and the wall ties and closely bond the two walls together, giving it all the immense strength it needs to hold the remaining hillside in place.
Another week of wall building, stone laying and upheaval ahead, but slowly and surely things are taking shape.
