Cardiff trip, sort of accidentally remembered.



This shot was taken by my husband back in 2012, I think it was, when we were on a trip to Cardiff. On this particular day, we took a walk along the water starting from about the National Assembly building. I can't recall where we ended up, but our jaunt took us along lovely stretches of wildflowers. All were photo-worthy.




Walking through one of the posh areas en route to the Botanical Garden, I spied this bit of choice graffiti on someone's back gate. -hope the owners of the house didn't mind, but I thought it hilarious.

The wildflower mix avec moi & the copper pictures popped up on Google as a result of some 'remember this day?' function. I suppose the feature is meant to stimulate the viewer to post the pictures on the shared Google platform to be enjoyed by strangers and friends alike. Instead of that, I thought I'd share them, along with other Cardiff trip pics I then scrounged up, here.

If I could go back tomorrow, I would. Cardiff is a lovely city.

  1. If that graffiti is Banksey, then the owners ought to take the gate off its hinges and put it in a bank.

    1. Totally. It had a Banksy vibe, but I thought, 'Nah, it can't be' when I saw it.

    1. Yeah, all the baddies are there--Ood, Daleks, Cybermen, etc. Costumes a-plenty, the phone box...I'm blanking on the rest, but it's a gas. It's a stone's throw from where Cap't Jack (John Barrowman) and his gang descend into their secret lair in Torchwood.
