At 95, there aren’t many things left to teach Hen Taid. But stacking rainbows was one.


  • Grimm’s rainbow


We took the rainbow to the prom, outside Hen Taid’s flat in Llandudno.

It was a windy day, making stacking a bit tricky. They definitely needed perserverance.

As in the picture below, the wind would knock pieces down and they would have to rebuild or occasionally start again. You can see how hard they were concentrating.

After a lot of trial and error, they finally got it to stand.

After finishing, they suggested we take them to the beach with us.
