It’s a cold and frosty morning today; which has reminded me of a wonderful video that I came across quite recently, of a great garden still in the making . The aerial view video is by William Collinson and shows off a garden in Wales by the gifted garden designer Arne Maynard. The house and its grounds are called Allt y bela, they can be found nestled and sequestered within the wild Welsh landscape of Usk. Allt y bela is not only a home but also an education centre too, as Arne offers workshops and other varied and interesting events. I haven’t been there myself, yet, although it is on my “to go” list !
Clicking on the above link, should take you to the page listed as “frost”. The video is labelled “Allt y bela in the frost from Arne Maynard Garden Design.” ( Make sure you watch it at full-screen size. )
Arne’s website also provides a wealth of information for serious gardeners, it is beautifully presented, and incorporates wonderful photography so is well worth returning to and revisiting – again and again !
AND FINALLY – here is a rare archival video of the American poet, Robert Frost, reading his elusive and enigmatic 1922 poem, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.”
The feature photo is my own; it is a composite / digitally altered image showing a winter tree in silhouette with the moon behind.
