The perfect day

Beautiful day yesterday. Rain in the morning, with a trip to Cowbridge and the Physic Garden as the rain eased off. Lots of lovely flowers there at the moment, and some really cool seed heads.

A Fuller's Teasel head. Very spiky, they used to be used to card wool

Then we drove to Dunraven Bay in Southerndown, a really beautiful beach only 25 mins from our house. The clouds lifted, the blue skies and sun came out, and we dipped our toes in the sand and ate cakes bought earlier in the day from Pontyclun deli. All finished off with a meal in VFS, and a drink in the Boar. Glorious.
