It is an incredibly huge and ornamented place ... being there just made your mind wonder as it tried to recreate how splendid it must have once been.

from this angle it looks like a castle

The differences between noble and ecclesiastic building architecture are pretty minimal, except for the fortifications. Tintern Abbey is 11th-13thC work. A castle of that period wouldn't likely be so open, but would rather have featured slit windows, generally "T" or inverted "T" in shape, and be behind a wall. If granted permission by the crown, the wall would have crenelations (or without permission, if the Lord wasn't particularly law abiding...).

I really miss living in the UK....

My now customary roaming ground of an evening is the Downs Banks, a local, small, nature reserve. We had some rain yesterday and look what it did to the stream!

Ah, you can't because the board software is exploding and doesn't see JPG's as valid image files today :(.

After sunflowers, daffodils were my wifes favourite flower and at the moment they are blooming all over the place. This one is shedding it's light in a scrap piece of land between a railway line and a facility for distributing gas supplies to a now defunct power station:

A shame I don't have Photoshop any more, this really needs a bit of selective filtering to bring out the blossom - that was what I was after for the white blossom of the hawthorn was a magical cloud in the shadows cast by the bright sun behind:

An avenue of Silver Birch, which was my wife's 'birth tree' in the symbolic language of trees; needless to say I walked it for her after a contemplative pause :

A symbol of regrowth, renewal and life blossoming onward after a devastation. :)

Birch trees are pioneers, they are often the first trees to grow in an environmental loss to the area.

Aye, Carol :D. As Monadnock is for you, my dear friend, so is the woodland for me :).

OTH? Your mailbox is full, good sir - my reply to your kindhearted PM vanished into the board software with a gentle puff of unsmoke as it bounced :). I thank you greatly for your concern :bows:.

We are on vacation in Tennessee. This is a waterfall 1000 feet under a mountain. Pretty wild.
