The Shadow of the Hare was a Easter special that first appeared on the BBC in 1993. It explores the history of the hare and its symbolism I remember watching it all those years ago and recently a friend sent me this link, which I thought I would share here.
It is a gem of a show. It is brilliantly researched and put together. The music features Maddy Prior’s Fabled Hare which is one of those songs that I can never get bored off.
Hares run over the British countryside and seem to be so part and parcel of this country. Yet, there are not natives and humans have made these beautiful creatures suffer.
Portmeirion is a quirky town on the coast of North Wales. Those of you that are old enough may remember it from the British TV show, ‘The Prisoner,’ or those of you that are like me will now google and possibly end up watching it on DVD.
We have been 3 times now, and it seems to be always misty but that may be because we go out of season, but when it is sunny it is gorgeous and when it is misty it has a different sort of magic.
It was my son’s birthday and he wanted his birthday cake to look like his toy dog. After much searching we came across a Sophisticake in Woodhall Spa who created this doggy masterpiece. Take a look at her Facebook page for more amazing cakes.
Portmeirion is a town of follies. Everything is out of place. Maybe that is what is so appealing; it has the same feeling of organised chaos that life offers, The people you meet in Wales have to be some of the most loveliest people that you can meet. They are a nation of open hearts. i hope to go to Wales again sometime this year and maybe explore other areas as well as returning to Portmeirion. There are many beautiful places in Wales and it will be nice to explore the more Welsh areas
As you may know I love unicorns, and so this building is just the kind of place that I am attracted to. One day i would love to stay in this building. I have no idea what it is like inside, but I am sure it will be of the usual high standard and it has a unicorn on it so what more could I want.
One of the reasons I love Portmeirion is that fact that it is quirky. Quirkiness always attracts me and yet it also has a quaintness to it. There is something different about it, something unique. I like that.
Below are some photos i have taken of Portmeirion. I hope you enjoy viewing them and I hope to visit again soon.
There is something quite magical about bleak weather. These photos were taken in close to Tintagel Cornwall a few years ago.
Although when these photos were taken the cars were able to get down the road earlier the road had been in a worse condition.
One car attempted to drive down the road slowly….whilst continuously sliding sideways. It took him over half an hour to get along this stretch of road. Other people were more successful. One person who managed to move at great speed was a surfer. Yes a man stood on his surfboard raced past at high speeds. It appeared to be the way to travel.
