Early One Morning


Feeling a bit blah? Come on a virtual walk up the Long Mountain. Get your boots on.


Scramble through the undergrowth and feel the crispness of the wind taking your breath and the glints of low sunlight on your face.


On past the old wheel wrights barn, He built a cart in there once and then found that the door was too narrow to get it through. That was tough.


Bright red fungi growing on lifeless branches amongst the wild garlic shoots. What are they?


Up the bank


To where the stream from the Long Mountain runs under the County Bridge


As you go on up to the top road, there's a tree stump on the side of the road, and underneath it ... home to a family of badgers. Shssh don't disturb them.


Just a little bit further up, look across and you can see snow on the Berwyn Mountains.
Loved having your company. Thanks for taking the time.

  1. That was a beautiful tour. It had that mysterious feel to it and made me think of the book, A Secret Garden.

  6. Beautiful countryside... just my cup of tea. When my mother's older sister moved down to Surrey, she named her house 'Berwyn', to remind herself of home!

  12. Lovely wander up the mountain Molly, wish I could step through the computer screen and be there..

    Bet the wheelwright was mighty upset when he realised his mistake !! Would love to sit quietly one evening and watch out for the badgers...

    Hope you are feeling less blah now,

    Claire :}
