Horseshoe Falls and the Velvet Hill.


I loved walking in the North Welsh countryside. Regardless of it being dull, cloudy and windy, we had a lovely walk around the Horshoe Falls and over the Velvet Hill near Llangollen. On the way up the hill we came across the lovely but small Llantysilio church which was surrounded with what seemed to be millions of snowdrops in full bloom. We were certainly breathless when we got to the top but the view soon made us forget about being tired. An absolute delightful pleasure!

Oh, kuidas mulle meeldib mägedes matkata. No rohkem küll jalutamine;) Tänane tee viis Põhja Walesi, Llangolleni lähistele, Horseshoe Falls and the Velvet Hill'i matkarajale. Kui tõus võtabki hingetuks, siis avarus ja vaated korvavad kõik! Teele jäi ka pisike Llantysilio kirik, kirikuaias valendamas miljonid lumikellukesed. Tänane hall ilm küll piiras nähtavust,kuid õnneks vihma ei sadanud. Mõnus!

Floral slippers. Lillesussid.



I found a pattern for floral slippers on Mimm's blog. Unfortunately the pattern is just in Estonian, but thank you to Mimm for writing down her Granny's pattern.


Lillesussid leidsin Mimmi blogist. Juhend ka kenasti olemas. Minu arvates ühed elegantsemad kootud susside seas! Lõin üles 26 silma, mitte 28, muidu kudusin juhendi järgi. Silmi oleks võinud veel vähem luua, küllalt sügav suss tuli. Kanna tagant võib ääre alla keerata, jääb ka kena. Lõng oli ilmselt jämedam, kui juhendis, andmed teadmata.
Aitäh Mimm, et vanaema õpetuse kirja panid!

Blenheim Palace and Kenilworth Castle.



Blenheim Palace is ancestral home of the Dukes of Marlborough and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill.

Inglisemaa pärandvara hulka kuuluv Blenheim'i palee, Marlborough hertsogite kinnisvara, Sir Winston Churchill'i sünnikoht.

And one of English Heritage pearls, the vast medieval fortress of Kenilworth Castle is one of the largest historic visitor attractions in the West Midlands and one of the most spectacular castle ruins in England.

Ja teine pärl, imetlusväärsed Kenilworth'i lossivaremed.



Kenilworth Castle has a long and interesting history. The ruins are best known as the home of Robert Dudley, the great love of Queen Elizabeth I, The Virgin Queen.


Kenilworth'i lossivaremed võiksid meile pajatada pikast ja huvitavast ajaloost, Lord Robert Dudley ja kuninganna Elizabeth I, nn. Neitsi-kuninganna, armuloost, sajanditepikkusest hiilgusest ja seejärel kiirest lagunemisest.
