Winter Returns – Moel y Garn

Well, the forecast was correct. After what was a lovely day on Good Friday, Saturday was a washout, a very windy washout as well. I still wasn’t feeling like a triathlete, but decided that I should probably go for a run or at least a walk up a hill. Anna and Morgan wanted to go...

Hive Life

Hive Life…. Spring must be on it’s way at last, and beekeeping once again seems to be on the agenda. We were all supposed to be giving a lecture to the beekeepers beginners course last night, but I’ve been suffering with the most viscous of lurgies and despite my best efforts, there was no way...

New Drive Timelapse – Day 8

Work continues on our new drive. We missed the action yesterday thanks to a technological faults – for some reason my GoPro keeps stopping partway through a timelapse recording session, I don’t now why, but it always seems to stop after taking 197 photos. It went through a phase of doing this every time for...
