A couple of years ago we discovered one of Wales's ancient forests, and deep within it, a beautiful waterfall and pool. It was so humid and we were hot after our walk up the forest path so we felt sad that we hadn't brought our swimming things. BUT the water was so inviting and I mean, we hadn't seen a single soul all morning. We were all alone in the most magical place, we'd be crazy not to just strip off and get in...
It's just struck me how much this hillock reminds me of a Kay Nielsen painting that I love - the one called 'And then she lay on a little green patch in the midst of a gloomy thick wood'.
In the painting the hill is covered in little flowers. I bet this was too, back in the spring, but the ferns and the grasses were the main attraction on this September day and we were drawn there to eat our picnic.
Last week we stayed at Pobty Cottage on the Isle of Angelsey. I've been excited about visiting this place since back in the winter when I saw photos of the swing seat under the big pine tree looking out over calm waters. The tide was so far out when we arrived that it was hard to believe it would come right up to the garden wall.
