Even More Thorn!!

Another walk up the beautiful Ennig River valley just below the Dragon's Back and a closer look at the wonderful Thorns ....


 

More Thorn!

And here are some more Thorn trees spotted on a walk in The Black Mountains yesterday - this time below Mynydd Bychan in Cwm Y Nant which feeds the River Ennig.

 
 

Thorn Trees on Y Das

In the middle of the North Western ridge of the Black Mountains stands "Y Das" - directly below is Rhos Fach common with numerous Thorn trees gradually thinning out with height on the slopes - and right near the top is a limestone outcrop with a prominent Thorn clinging on to it. 

I had spotted this tree on my many walks up, over and around this mountain and I finally took a closer look last week.

Here are the first few images from that walk......   (click to enlarge)

 
 


Blooming Trees

Spring comes a little later in the Black Mountains.  These photographs were taken in Park Wood which is around 750ft above sea level,  and two days ago Spring was clearly on the way ...... 

Ash just about burst forth, Hawthorn in bloom, and Goat Willow being savoured....
