Ynysymaengwyn - Snowdrop Time - Tywyn - Wales

On Sunday afternoon I took my camera on a walk to the local beauty spot of  Ynysymaengwyn as I wanted to photograph the last of the snowdrops.
From the late medieval period until the twentieth century, Ynysymaengwyn, situated roughly a mile from Tywyn by the road to Bryn-crug, was by far the most powerful estate in the parish. The family's wealth is revealed in official records and also in the Welsh poetry composed to its leading members.

The glorious beauty of the carpet of snowdrops are well worth seeing and lifts the spirit. Nature is wonderful.
