A farmers toast!

Let the wealthy and great, Roll in splendour and state, I envy them not i declare it, I eat my own lamb, My chickens and ham, I shear my own fleece and i wear it, I have lawns,I have bowers, I have fruits,I have flowers, The lark is my morning alarmer, So joyful boy's now, Here's god speed the plough, Long life and success to the farmer!!

The walk home from pont y gwyddol.

....Sometimes i just NEED to walk and just breathe in and absorb the Green ! do you understand? I hope so or else i must sound completely bonkers......so col dropped me off at the back of our hill after work with "Ben bodran" our ancient 16yr old JRT, and we walked and we sat and we just listened.. we watched a bird pretend to be injured holding it's wing down to distract us from its nest. I trespassed a bit, to visit old friends ie badger setts and tree stumps! but i'm sure my neighbours wouldn't mind, i did no damage and left no trace...
And now i'm working in the shop dressed head to foot in green playing Kate West on the cd and feeling like i've got back in touch with the goddess.......Mad i know.


  1. Thank you for a glimpse of what you saw on that walk. I completely understand why you would want the free time to take that walk and how it would refresh you.

    I see no madness in you, dear Bodran, only wisdom. xo

  2. What a fantastic landscape - it must be so exhilarating to walk through it especially at this time of year. Good thing to do after a day at work.

    (Must come and see what you've got in the shop - the last post was very tempting.)

  3. Phew - finally able to leave a comment - the 'leave a comment' thingy is hidden, just flashes up as I pass my curser over it.
    Just wanted to say - you're not mad, absolutelym positively not mad. How sane it is to take the time to refresh, to fill yourself with what makes a difference in your day, your mind, soul etc.
    Gorgeous walk.

  4. Oh lovely pictures.
    & I do like the pic of the little green pea caravan - gorgeous - do you run away to it and hide?
    I also like the look of your shop & do hope all is going weel.

    Dead difficult to leave comments though!

  5. Beautiful, beautiful countryside. I love the part where you just sat and listened...

    Wishing you many more wonderful, inspiring walks!
