Back In The Mountains

Another road trip this week took me back to the mountains in glorious spring sunshine 🙂

    Hi Mike, what beautiful photos! There’s nowhere better to be on a fine sunny day (except perhaps a deserted beach!) What is the mountain in the first pic?

    • Mike Howe says:

      Hi Jo it certainly was a lovely day. The mountain is the one next to Cwm Idwal in North Wales, don’t know it’s exact name 🙂 The garden and house is Plas Newydd on Anglesey – really lovely

      • Jo Woolf says:

        Thanks, Mike – I wish we had visited Plas Newydd when we had the opportunity! I was just trying to place that mountain because it looked familiar – I used to drive that way, along the Llanberis Pass and Pen y Pass, very often.

    Lucky you, Mike 🙂 That must be a lovely experience. Great pictures.
    All the best,

    All that green! So nice to see. Our “winter wonderland” is in it for the long haul, it seems.

    • Mike Howe says:

      Sorry to hear that Karen, apart from up high on the hills we have had no snow, no frost, just a very warm, wet and incredibly windy winter. It was lovely to feel the strong sun on my face. I hope spring comes to you soon – looking forward to seeing the pictures when it does 🙂

  9. Aah, beautiful, Mike! Azure blue sky over the mountains and daffodils on the lawn.
    And just for the records: Today, it was rather overcast here and now some wind is coming up. It’s not always a bad choice to be on the Isles, weather wise. 😀
    Much love,

    The mountains look beautiful when they start to green.
