It is a lovely place, Elizabeth...not entirely disfigured by centuries of coal mining.

It could be England, too -I love the undulating, hedged English/Welsh countryside - the rural country is my England.
Did you read any poem by Dylan Thomas?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - it easily could be! I have, Philine - hadn't thought of him in a long time!

They get a lot of rain in Wales Elizabeth. It certainly shows.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It seems it would be forever green!!
I love the glowing hills
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Chantal, me too!
What a beautiful scene Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is, isn't it!
My kind of scene, Elizabeth. I love it!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: So glad Mary! It's lovely isn't it!
The hills are alive - nice shot smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Exactly... smile Thanks Belinda!
Another beautiful piece of work Elizabeth...God's work in admiration!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much Ronky!! Indeed!
If this scene is indicative of the Welsh countryside, Elizabeth, the rural landscape is a treat for the eye.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was really gorgeous Beverly!
I'm so glad you got to see this lovely Welsh countryside, Frank definitely took the right route for all of you, and I guess this is considerably different to what you see round your way.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Me too! Frank is the most excellent tour guide!
Very different from anything I've seen anywhere!
Wales is a beautiful country E.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is Bill - as is the rest of your little Island!

"There's lovely look you, Dai bach..." It has to be said with a rolling Welsh accent to be fully appreciated smile It is a lovely scene, though. Alas no green fields around here at the moment; no proper rain for nearly 6 weeks and sunny all day with temperatures around 85 deg.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You'll have to say it for me when we see you in September! smile
Could be Derbyshire smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yah? I'll have to take your word for it!
What a lovely view... and photo.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It really is Jacquelyn!! Thank you!
