Border Country

We were on holiday last week with friends, in Wales.  We were staying in a little cottage near Welshpool, on a hillside looking west over the Severn valley towards the hills and mountains beyond, with the outline of Cader Idris (I think) on the horizon.

Our friends (and their dog) were walking the northern half of the Offa's Dyke Path - about 85 miles. We walked with them for a day, and did just 10 miles.   The weather was beautiful all week, sunny and warm, and the path went through lovely countryside.

As you can see, the trees were still bare, but there were primroses and other spring flowers. including a few wild daffodils.  It felt like spring had finally arrived.
