360

It's far too nice a day to be blogging at length.
So, I have taken four photographs of our little world here in Trelawnyd, each roughly taken at 90 degrees from the other.
It perhaps gives a little flesh to the bones of where we live and how the place looks




"Bwthyn-y-Llan" perched on the corner of the lane
The honeysuckle has almost covered the front door


a further 90 degrees is the Church


Across the valley...the next 90 


And down the field
Forgive the ducks' lurid purple paddling pool
Only Angostura is in sight, the rest of the animals are hidden away out of the heat

  1. That's a nice idea. And the four photos prove you're a lucky guy - to live in such a place in days like these.

  2. I feel like I know the place, having virtually walked down the Google street to find you in a far-flung field, feeding the chickens in your pyjamas.

  3. Beautiful setting, you lucky man. The church and churchyard are beautiful, I'll be round to explore that sometime!!

  4. What a nice spot, lucky boys. The animals have the right idea. I got a bit too much sun yesterday ( not by design ). I am hiding in the shade today too with a G and T, mmmm.

  6. Does no-one ever die in Trelawnyd? Your churchyard looks awfully empty!

    that's the old churchyard/.... unfortunately in the 1980s health and safety dictated that many of the old gravestones were removed!
    the village population is now buried in the "new" churchyard which lies about 50 feet to the right of the church photo!

  12. What idyllic surroundings you live in - just lovely! I don't understand the removal of gravestones, especially for health and safety reason. Are there any kind of markers to show who lies there?

    yes, some of the villagers marked and documented the gravestones before they were removed.. its disgusting that the council removed so many of them... but thats the coucil for you... many stones do remain though further left of the photo that I took

  16. quite a change as one goes around the 360...from street lights and buildings to an incredible view!

    I'm always fascinated by the houses that are built right on the road! I wish we had stone built homes in this country...so much more lasting!

  17. Great photo's John...love the views! Of course hubby and I already feel like we've walked down your lane and waved to you out in the garden with the animals ;) OH yes...and your neighbor who was walking down the lane! Love the rolling hills in the distance...I miss hills. Enjoy your beautiful day over the pond. It's a windy one here in Kansas ...but what else is new ;)! Maura :)

  18. The last pic is like one of those puzzle pictures. There are 13 different animals hidden in this picture - can you spot them? (Gets out magnifying glass and squints laboriously)

  19. Clever idea to show photos of 360 degrees. I might do that sometime!

    ReplyDelete
  20. get some software and "stitch" them together in a full 360 degree panorama... I use icrosoft ice which is totally free!! Great pics though :)

  21. "Lurid, purple, paddling pool" this totally struck me funny! Nice views John.

    You have a birthday coming up soon I think. Will go look for something suitable for you & Janet at Under The Sun. Of course, won't get to you intime, from one little burg to another, but will give you something to keep an eye out for!xx
