Beddgelert Mouse House 2
I forgot to blog these things as they were on Lovely Husband’s camera.
and 8 of these dining chair cushion covers.
This little cricket vest went to Lynn for her new grandson to grow into.
Ready for a little walk?
We go inland from Morfa (June),
and have a barbecue by Afon Glaslyn.
Afon = River
Glas = Blue
There is a lovely walk around the lake.
Rhododendrons are in flower.
The colours of the river weed are almost Autumnal.
There is a bridge over the lake where it becomes a river again heading towards the town of Beddgelert.
Beautiful rock formations and boulders.
For people who want to know more about the man this book is available.
For those who wish to rent his house for the odd week,
It is here. Complete with some of his own ornaments still in place.
How special is that!!!!! I have my birthday booked for there.
Bungle is waiting hopeful for the odd barbecued sausage.
The ruins of a 2 room cottage amid the bracken. It probably belonged to a shepherd once.
This house is still inhabited.
We named this bird the “Whinging Bungle-Bird” as it’s chirp was like that of a whining dog. I nearly developed a nervous tick hearing it.
It is really called a Temminck’s Stint and is rare in the UK (thankfully) it likes to Winter in the Mediterranean and Summer in Northern Scandinavia so a few of you may have seen it.
I wonder where Alfred Bestall imagined Nutwood to be where Rupert Bear lived?
But back to now- it is a windy Autumn evening here.
It’s comforting to light scented candles
and be grateful to have a warm home to be in.
You are probably having deja-vu now.
I made one of these for Deb’s birthday in July and cut one for myself at the same time.
What with breaking my finger, the embroidery had to be put to one side.
So it is with a lot of relief that I have finished a Mouse House all of my own with the same red dot flannel lining as Deb’s.
Next time I will take you to the most special place in Beddgelert.
