After being stuck in the house for a few weeks while being really ill I was itching to get out and cabin fever doesn’t even begin to cover it! Oh boy, was I bored!
Of course, being bored is a good sign as it shows that you are starting to pick up again. But I still needed a carer to go with me.
Hubby decided that the Easter weekend was the perfect time for the family to go out exploring.
We got together with my parents and brother, this is pretty much the Ty Siriol clan! Then we drove off to explore the Brecon Beacons.
The plan was that we explored by car looking for places where we could stay in the motorhome for our creative retreats. And what better place than the Brecon Beacons for inspiring creativity?
I find being in the woods and forest the most relaxing of places and definitely feel inspired by it.
Looking at Missy below she is certainly energised by the wilderness!
There are definitely signs of Spring, like the daffodils everywhere, and I mean everywhere as we are in Wales! There are lots of splashes of bright yellow around.
One of my favourite Spring time plants are bluebells but so far I haven’t seen them. They should be out very soon though and there are loads opposite my house for me to admire.
This is a view of the mountains near Brecon. The sun came out for me to take this pic.
This is a view of Llangorse Lake from the top of the mountain. You can see the lake in the centre of the photo. I really do live in a beautiful part of the world. It’s a shame that we often don’t appreciate it though as we’re accustomed to it.
There are other signs of Spring in the air. We have an abundance of baby lambs in the fields everywhere. I love to watch them playing in the fields, such innocence and playfulness. They don’t have a care in the world and it helps me to put my worries to the back of my mind as well. I try to be mindful and in the moment so that I don’t miss the peace that comes with it.
These ewes and lambs are in the field at my parents farm, Ty Siriol farm. It won’t be long before they are a dirty colour so I thought I have better photograph them while they are still fluffy and white!
I definitely think that Spring is in the air now although Winter is still holding on and not quite giving up yet. Can you feel the change in seasons where you are?
It’s been such a long winter, especially for us spoonies so I hope that Spring brings you some relief. In the meantime, keep looking for the signs and see them as hope.
Love and spoons,
