It started warm and sunny, so it was biking in shorts with a fine view of the mountains. A lovely route away from the main roads, and a fantastic tea and cake stop in Defynnog – what a great way to welcome in the season.
Too hot for some, but if you include a swim in your walk or bike ride, the water is always refreshing. My favourite spot is Llyn Cwm Llwch, but the Usk river just upstream from Brecon is pretty good too.
It has been a cold winter, but April and May are lovely times to explore the Beacons, with fresh green leaves emerging, and birds singing in the hedgerows. Here are a few pics taken at that time of year.
Not much sign of snow this week, but after a cold and misty start the sun broke through and made for a beautiful afternoon.
Here are some of our latest pics..
