Spring Moths

It’s been ages since we put the moth trap out. The last time was back in August last year. Terrible I know, but the weather hasn’t been kind and we’ve been busy so finding an evening where it wasn’t going to rain and when Morgan and I would hjave time to go through the trap...

Mother’s Day Weekend and Spring is in the Air

The weekend turned out quite nice in the end. After a fairly damp camp with the Scouts up at Devil’s Bridge on Friday night, the sun came out on Saturday and temperatures reach 17.3ºC, the hottest day of the year so far.

No Moths – Are you sure its May?

I put the moth trap out in the garden last night, but there wasn’t sign of a single moth in or around the trap this morning. Mind you, with temperatures down to less than 3°C and day time temperatures still struggling to get into double figures it really doesn’t feel like May out there. I’m sure...

The Sounds of Spring

I had a gorgeous run last night. The clocks have gone forward, the evenings are long and the weather is as good as it could be. I wasn’t supposed to go for a run but I couldn’t resist it so headed off down the beach towards Borth. The beach was quiet with only a few people wandering...

British Summertime – We love it!

Sorry for the lack of updates here over the past few days, but the weather has just been far too nice. My job as a web designer has me sat in front of the computer all day long so over the weekend that was the last thing I wanted to be doing, especially whilst the...
