This medieval castle situated on a hill with spectacular views of the beautiful Welsh countryside, has a steep, terraced garden bounded by a most unusual hedge.
A huge, knobbly, carbuncle winding its way down the hill...
Knitted together over the years....
In complete contrast, a day trip to the Scottish Borders a few weeks ago yielded another interesting boundary..... this time at the romantically named Sweetheart Abbey in Dumfries and Galloway.
A red sandstone Abbey surrounded by the remains of a granite boulder wall precinct...
Huge boulders knitted together with smaller stones.
Both hedges and walls perfectly executed by their creators hundreds of years apart.
All very lovely I'm sure you will agree.
However, my own encounter with a "wall" last Friday was not so lovely.
Not an attractive, historical wall..... but a modern concrete breeze block wall in a Leisure Centre.
That damaged the back of my head....and boy....did I see stars, as well as donating a pint of blood to the surrounding floor.
A lengthy visit to casualty (via an ambulance for a bit of drama) resulted in a most fetching hat...
Which is now off and I can at last wash my yucky hair.
The culprit of this head trauma?
A very naughty chair!
P.S. .....I am now officially banned from standing on chairs by Mr C S.
