Post 4. Verdant

We had to go to Wales this week to attend a funeral. Despite the reason for journey (and it’s a long journey), going to Wales is always an absolute joy.

West Wales is always verdant but this time, it was verdant and then some. So much and so many greens. An overflowing abundance of lushness.

Churches are mainly dark grey stone, many with turreted towers, some quite severe looking even in summer sunshine. Churchyards are full of chess piece shaped headstones, which I’ve only ever seen in that part of the country.
