A few days ago I visited the Bodnant Welsh Food Centre and then the gardens of Bodnant house itself. Both are situated near Llandudno, approximately 45 minutes drive from Bodfan.
It was a glorious day and I was able to see the Laburnum walk in full bloom. I was also fascinated to see a host of damsel flies dancing around the water features and captured one on my camera as it landed on a leaf.
Below is a view across the Conwy Valley, from Bodnant Gardens, a National Trust property and the pool in front of the house itself.
