Thanks! My hand is getting sore from punching out thousands of leaves. But I think it will look good. I am trying to find a mix of colors which make the foliage look deep red but still has some variation.

I had a lovely day trip today, down memory lane and into the land of bilingual sign posts. First to the Elan Valley, where there are a collection of about half a dozen rather spectacular dams all within close proximity (yes, in this country we drive to look at dams), then to the ancestral family home of Cwmystwyth and thence westwards to the sea for fish and chips on the front as is traditional.


Anyway, the reason I'm posting is that on a brief stop-off in Pontarfynach (Devil's Bridge) I saw something and thought of you, H.



Turns out they have a Godswood there, so it seemed only right and proper to pause to pay respects to the ancestors. Just thought I'd post it. If it doesn't give you inspiration for the project then at least it might bring a smile to your face.

Winter is definitely not coming, mind. Might be February, but it felt more like May or June. Bloody lovely day.

That’s really, great Dylan. Is it a collecton of carved trees or just one?

By the way, is that the same unpronounsable Pontarfynach which is the locatio. Of the first series of ’Hinterland’?

Yeah, that's what they say. Haven't seen it myself, but my brother is a big fan.

It was in the wooded grounds of the station of the heritage steam railway that goes to Aberystwyth, there's a nice little shop and cafe there too. There were other wood carvings there. Statues of animals and such, but if there were any other faces on trees I didn't see them.
