It’s been beautifully freezing and sunny at the minute up here in Snowdonia, North Wales. We’ve been loving this winter, so much sun and at the minute, loads of snow. We’re snowed in in Snowdonia!
Don’t let the weather put you off! Get wrapped up and go for it!!
Remember to leave a little food out for the small birds at this time of year, especially with all this snow. Naturally, it’s a hard time of year for us all, not much is growing, food is scarce and its been a long winter.
We are making do until Spring kicks in. There may be potatoes, cabbages, some broccoli, onions, swede, turnip, kale growing locally, so we’re not complaining, plus the occasional Pineapple from the supermarket!
The beautiful thing about Snowdonia, one of many, is the different environments, from giant craggy mountains, down to wide stretches of beaches and forests, white water rivers, waterfalls, marshlands, it’s paradise for people who love going outside and exploring.
“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.”
Thich Nhat Hanh
We like to slow things down in the winter, not fight against the weather and the darkness, but try and enjoy it for what it is. A chance to take it easy, keep warm, play, cook and sing the winter away. Winter can be a great time to reflect and recharge.
The first signs of spring are here, the snowdrops and there are rumours about bluebells. I can’t wait for wild garlic, one of my favourite parts of spring, but this world is warming, there is a little spring in the air and we can’t wait for nature to wake up an bloom.
Join us in beautiful North Wales this March at our Food For The Soul – Plant-based Cooking and Yoga Day Retreat, 18th March ’18.
