Gwarllwyneidos - revisited
The old stone barn in the farmyard of Gwarllwyneidos - nature is taking over. The grass is like a sea of greenery lapping at it's feet and the sky can be glimpsed through the roof where slates have given up the ghost and slid into the green sea below. I think I am it's only visitor. Watercolour and ink in an ivory mount
'A Good Place for a Horse'
This is the door into the barn / stable in Rhydowen, West Wales. Above the door is the remains of an old Latin inscription which says, I am told, 'A Good Place for a Horse'. It would have been a very good place to leave your horse if you were riding past and felt the need for some liquid refreshment in the Tafarn next door (now an antique shop).

This backdrop is a perfect foil for the subtropical plants that is is home to. Here we see the old fireplace with lush plants spilling out of it,
