In love with the sea, gifted with an almost superhuman ability to bring chaos into order. Mostly tired and often to be found hibernating through the winter on the sofa, and bobbing about in the ocean in summer.

The People's Orchard

Apples and Bees.

The People’s Orchard. I am probably revealing my ignorance here, but until I met Nia Siggins and Sophie Jenkins from the Big Lottery Funded People’s Orchard, I had no idea that there are solitary bees.

Dwynwen, the Princess of Lovers.

The Welsh Valentine. There’s not much to tell really of my early life. Certainly no one could have predicted what would happen. Princess I was, but one among 24 daughters.

Keeping Fish with Dale Humphrey.
