Back to Normal.

Of course, a couple of days later, snow no more.

Char Kway Teow

At last, I have gotten around to making a char kway teow for myself.  Set out  under an oil painting from Singapore of the Malacca coast with orchids about to bloom on the table - our new Penang corner in the kitchen.  Prawn crackers too.

View from atop Cefn Gelligear

Parking up,

we took a stroll up the hill

to view the Beacons,

and further round to the west, the Black mountain at the other end of the National Park

We were not alone.

Snow in Hengoed.

Snow started to fall quite heavily in the late evening,

 making our neighbour Ron's bungalow look very cosy.

The planters started to fill up.

 An early rise to catch the sun up,

well rewarded.

Pretty in full sun too.
