Dusk 'Strydd Yr Eglwys' Llanon - oil on canvas.

One minute walk from my front door at dusk as the red sun sets is this typically Welsh scene. Flowers on walls, at the bottom of walls and tumbling over walls. Nobody planted them ... they just appeared. The light on this occasion was magical, painting the front of cottages in gold.
Here is Llanon are lots of interesting corners to unexpected scenes as the light changes from moment to moment.

Llanon is a wonderful place in the early sun of the day and also the last moments with its stunning sunsets.
There is something very special about the quality of the air in this part of Wales.

Two birds of prey for the price of one. Chasing the buzzard is one of the many hundreds of red kite now successfully back in Wales.


Everywhere is filled with the scent of spring. First the bright yellows of gorse, followed by the strong white petals and perfume of May blossom. This can be almost overpowering when the sun shines. Subtle smells of bluebell and other wild flowers will soon give way to garlic.

Banks of the Afon Cledan

This was a wonderful little walk at the back of the main street in Llanon. It follows the River (Afon in Welsh) Cledan. Everywhere in Ceredigion can still be found unspoilt wild flowers giving out wonderful bursts of scent. Flying overhead were buzzards and a family of red kites (once almost extinct, and now more common than sparrows it seems).

The best of all things - clean, small village, clean air, hills and sea, wildlife, birds, creatures, horses, sheep and abundant Red Kites. Llanon.

This seems to be a 'thin place' for me already. The Celts spoke of places where the separation of heaven and earth was very thin. This is the churchyard at Llansantffraidd, adjoining Llanon.
