Advent: December 12th

This is a photo I took in November – the first snowfall of the year, however slight, always seems a bit ominous when it comes that early!

P1180707

The view is the valley behind where we live and the back drop is the Kerry Ridgeway – a 15mile ancient drovers path on the border of England and Wales. It’s popular with walkers and riders now as a beautiful and varied route with stunning views on a clear day as it’s quite a high path, all over 1,000ft above sea level. As with the vista from our house, you get panoramic views over large parts of mid-Wales that change with the seasons and weathers.

This area is of course also the homeland origins of the Kerry Hill sheep (not the sheep in the picture sadly!) They’re distinctive white sheep with black facial markings and the Kerry Ridgeway was the route to drive animals for sale from the hills of Wales to Shropshire markets and beyond.
