Yesterday we had a day out in Shrewsbury. We went to Shrewsbury along the main route, via Welshpool etc along with lots of holiday traffic going the other way! But on the way back, after a very successful day, we decided to return using a back route skirting the Welsh/English border with Wales on our right and the magnificent hills of Shropshire on our left. Every turn was an adventure, especially at this wonderful time of year. May is an especially beautiful time. Countless buzzards kept us company along with wild garlic, bluebells and hedgerows, just about to burst into life. The fields of 'rape' stretched across our panorama on the way there and many greens showed thier splendour along the border on our return.
