A Sunny Winters Day at Ynyslas

It was one of those quiet weekends before Christmas here in Ynyslas. The sun was out so not only were we generating plenty of energy from our solar panels but it was a nice day for a stroll on the beach too. When I say plenty of energy from the solar panels it is of...

Spring is Here

No doubt it won’t last long, but it feels as though Spring is here. The skylarks are singing, there is a definite dawn chorus and I even saw my shadow whilst walking back from the beach, which means the sun must be out. What’s more, I mowed the lawn at the weekend as well. I’ve...
