*Welsh scenery-type photos alert*

Yesterday I went to Bodnant Gardens with my mum. I know everyone's dying to see what its like there, so I took the liberty of stopping off at every strategically-placed bench to take a photo of the beautiful sights I could see, just for this here blog (and, also, for me cos I love it there).

The Welsh Tourist Board should pay me commission.

My favourite view in Bodnant - looking out towards Snowdonia.

Looking down at the River Hiraeth-something (can't remember the last bit) which runs through The Dell - what the river and its banks are known as.

The river!

See, I think this shot could easily be mistaken for somewhere tropical. Like Thailand maybe?

Oh, I do like this shot. How much am I practically a professional photographer?

The lovely hall. The Queen Mother stayed there once.

Last one - honest! I had to put this one up because I thought it was so thoughtful of Mother Nature to have a bush flower exactly the same colour as my blog.


In other news, today I polished my car. It is now so clean and shiny I could use my new hairdryer to dry my hair in front of it in the style of a big mirror with wheels. I shall photo-blog it tomorrow just because I am so proud of all my (4 hours) of hard work, and also because I have only just thought of doing it and its too dark now to take a picture.

    lovely photos Laura, I still consider Wales to be a secret of mine, in that i'd rather be nowhere else in the summer.. Seeing those photos reminded me of some I took at Beddgellert (typo?) i mean, they look identicle lol!

    I cant wait to go back in a few months....

    Chris.

    I love Beddgelert! I can assure you they won't be the same though. Beddgelert is a town - Bodnant is a hall and National Trust gardens! But to be honest, you can only photograph so many trees before they all start looking the same!

    Thanks! I am seriously considering sodding off my degree and becoming a professional photographer in the employment of the Welsh Tourist Board. I have already been approached!*

    *None of the above is remotely true.
