St. Non's Well appreared, so the legend goes, during a thunderstorm that heralded the birth of St. David.... Some more can be gleaned from Wikipedia...

Hiya Marion - This photo is, as you have probably guessed is kind of linked to three other adjacent photo's in the gallery... The history of these places is always illuminating - both in terms of the pure historical aspect but also in the 'colour' the story paints of the period..

I hope you find it interesting..

Glad you liked it..

Cheers

Steve

Well shown! Not meant to be a play on words...but guess it turned out that way:)

Hiya JF - If the pun was unintended, I need not worry! There is a link to a spot of history about this spot in the first comment should you have the time (and inclination!!)

Cheers

I liked this photo enough to click on it and was rewarded with a very interesting link. I never knew anything about St. David, and certainly never heard of his mother. I like the contrast between the delicate, sunlit flowers and the dark shaded stonework, Steve, and the whole set is excellent. Cheers! Theolfa

Hello Theolfa ! A warm welcome to you in Canada! So chuffed you found the gallery and, even better, its content passed muster!

St. Davids is a remarkable place with history popping up all over.. The whole St. Non / St David thing was learned about just be going for a walk and all but tripping over the history coming out of the ground... Regarding the link, well, there are times when the story behind the image as compelling...

Should you come over to the old country, St. Davids and the _whole Pembrokeshire coast is worth a visit...

As for Saskatchewan, well, been there a number of times - mainly in the winter. I don't mind the cold - just as well!

Cheers and thanks everso for the visit and compliment!

You have hit the nail on the head, here, Loz.. Some photo's do not need anything to augment them but others do.. It is very gratifying when the information (or at least the beginnings of trail) is followed up!

Thanks for the Like...

Cheers

Hello Denise and a dry welcome to my gallery! It takes a little work to gather the information for photo's such as this and the work is made all the more worth while when it is appreciated!

You are most welcome!

Hello Francis - Old is right! The legend of St. Non suggests the spring has been here for about 1,500 years...

Thank you for the like and your visits today :-)
