I thought you might like to know how the St. Bride’s Day camellia is faring. The flowers were placed in the well on the saint’s day, 1st February. See: Potent Days – Y dyddiau gwledd o Ffraed & Fountain of Youth
Another article from the private blog:
Still on the trail into Alan Wilson’s & Baram Blackett’s (W&B’s) proposition that Christ and the True Cross came to west Wales (Pembrokeshire) I re-visited another location where one element in their story meets with our Ffraed for the second time.
I referred to Graham Robb and his book, The Ancient Paths, at the end of my article, Grave suspicions. It’s the builders’ fault. Well, I’ve had a few moments free time to scan through it, and there are some quite amazing synchronicites.
Several times I’ve mentioned how elements of the Mabinogion have cropped up while on this journey with Ffraed, and how there are noteworthy connections concerning Pembrokeshire and Oxford – a place where I have spent the greater part of my life. There is a strong Welsh connection with two colleges, Pembroke and Jesus Colleges. I’ve previously too talked about Dragons and their affinity with Oxford, in so many ways.The centre at Oxford is a Dragon location in the Mabinogion. We have also discovered that Y Ddraig Ffraed leaves the coast of the Isles at St. Bride’s.
It was a little after noon when I sauntered into Llanwnda, following the indications of my divining rods.
Very soon the road peeled away and across the grass (where once upon a time, it is said, stood a huge stone circle), ahead of me was the glorious sight and ever more powerful scent of a magnificently blooming may tree. On an ash tree by the hawthorn, hung a slate tile, upon it was painted a cross and the legend, ‘Llanwnda Holy Well’. A really nice simple sign.
What is a Dragon line?
Dragon lines are natural, nurturing, and sinuous Earth currents that were understood by our ancient forebears, who notated, and scored them (like music) with stones, wood, wells, ponds, and earth works, to preserve and enhance their environments.
