News from Rainy Valley

It has been so long since my last post that you would be forgiven for thinking that i have given it all up.  In truth I thought I had for a while as other demands have crowded life and blogging was just one thing too much.
But as always happens, things have calmed down and I'm back in the swing.
The Garden in Rainy Valley is sleeping (though not as deeply as it should because of this warm wet winter we're experiencing), so apart from the fact that the bulbs are coming up and the the snowdrops we transplanted to make way for the veggie patch are a sea  of white across the lawn, there's nothing to report, so instead I thought I would share some pictures of Rainy Valley and hereabouts hit by the current incredible weather:

Christmas day was a quiet one - just the two of us, having a picnic in the Brecon Beacons - in the snow.  It was peaceful and pristine on the top of the world - just our footprints and rabbit tracks!

There have been beautiful misty early mornings:



Powerful stormy sunsets:


and water water everywhere:



The weather conditions have been overpowering at times and devastating for many people, but you can't help but be amazed by the sheer power of the natural world, huge tides, sheets of rain, 70 mile per hour winds, and then just as it's soaked you to the skin, (again) blown you off your feet, and taken your breath away, you turn round and it does this...........

What's not to like?
