Ok, so i really didn't make time to do everything I had planned and to be honest i nearly didnt bother, but i was looking at all the other entries and decided someone better stand up for the UK! So i made a digital collage of my beautiful hometown of Brecon.

Brecon is a small town in mid Wales (part of the UK, about 4hours drive from London). The usual response to saying you are from Brecon (presuming someone knows where it is) seems to be 'oh, do you live on a farm' (no i dont!).


I've just put together some views from the town in the little polaroids. The Sheep really are EVERYWHERE! (The first time i stayed at my boyfriends house i could hardly sleep for the sound of sheep. BAAA!!) The Daffodils are the national flower and the music notes are there because Brecon is host to Brecon Jazz, an international Jazz festival held every August. The heart and the word Aberhonddu are in red white and green as they are the colours of the Welsh flag. Aberhonddu is the Welsh word for Brecon and actually means mouth of the river Honddu.



if you want to know more try

or just search brecon in google images for some more lovely pics!

I am so voting for this.

I had a great brainwave for a craft for this challenge last night but it was all way too late :-(

I love the UK! (and Wales!)

 Shocked I didnt expect someone on this site to live so close to me!

Your collage sums up Brecon really well, though my dog would argue it needs extra hills! She loves spending time up the beacons.

pob lwc!

hey becs 88 - great to see Wales represented! I'm living in Abergavenny - so not far from Brecon - it's a beautiful part of the world.


KatyMai - I'm also a displaced marches girl - originally from near Ross-on-Wye. Surprised to see someone from my neck of the woods on here!

This is really cute. Another welsh girl here, though currently displaced-how about the rugby?! Such a good weekend.
