My walk this week was more of a lazy wander. The warm sunshine and the relaxed atmosphere at the Welsh Valley Alpacas Open Day prompted a meander more than a walk and that is what we did (see the two previous posts for this week).
Returning from the top of the valley at The Waterside – Felindre we first met some of the male alpacas with their new shorn hair-dos. Then, sitting on a perfectly placed bench, I soaked up the atmosphere and photographed (yet again) one of my favourite wildflowers, the ribwort. It’s perhaps not the most obvious wildflower to enjoy as much as I do, but they hold strong memories of hot summer days as a child and playing with them with my brother and sisters.
Looking through the new green bracken and across the valley I listened to the bees buzzing the and the birds chirping and thought, “Bliss!”
