This dream-like scene seen at the National Trust Anglesey Abbey property using an iPhone. To me, everything in here symbolises spring. Daffodils, Hyacinths, Cherry Blossoms and the brilliant hues of a Japanese maple tree.

A flint(stone)

If you came looking for Fred or Wilma Flintstone, then you’ve come to the wrong place :)!

East Anglia and Norfolk in England have many flint stones that can be found littering the countryside. Flints have been used since the stone-age to make sharp-edged weapons like axes and arrow-heads, as well as in the creation of sparks to produce a fire. The flints found in our local area take on peculiar shapes, like the one below which looks like a horseshoe.

At the seaside in Rhossili beach, Wales

Rhossili beach is possibly one of the best beaches in Britain. Rhossili lies in the Gower peninsula in Wales in an area designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The beach itself is about 3 miles long and is accessed by a steep descent from the Rhossili village at the top of the hill. As with most of Gower, this property is owned and operated by the National Trust.
