Well, it was April after all
and the log fire burned merrily in the hearth.
The ghost was nowhere to be seen
though the light bounced off all sorts of things in the sitting room.
The dew was heavy on the lawn.
Outside the kitchen
a single red tulip in the grass – and Marmite on the window sill.
even a house fit for a hobbit.
Cowslips, dandelions, grape hyacinth and tulips make a lawn in the orchard.
just look at the grass
and peek in at the windows.
Primroses under the rose.

Oh My Goodness when can I move in and spend time there. Even just a few months.
It is my British Mysteries tourist dream !
oh, how quintessentially, and prettily english! the window sills, the colors, the garden…
my garden seems to be the battlefield for young buck deer, or their dinner buffee. apple trees are starting to bloom, hoping the weather will hold until bloomings done. it’s been unusually warm and sunny for the last week or so. the garden needs a ton of work which the one with two good hands isn’t very interested in doing. oh well.
the cast is coming off on thursday, there will be another scar as the doc couldn’t use the previous spots. he, or someone else, nicked nervus ulnaris during surgery and my pinky and ring finger are somewhat numb, hoping that will pass with time.
hugs, belly rub for buster!
Yes, this is such a lovely house in the country. I always go to visit when I’m in England.
Buster sends lots of love!
Stunning photographs, it sums up a Country house in sweet England.
Thank you! Yes, this house is quintessentially English – in the best possible way!
So lovely! Where in England is it? Wish our springs were a little lush-er here in NY…
What a beautiful place, Elizabeth. Imagine the generations that lived there. You describe it so well I want to live there!
What a beautifully evocative set of photos. Thank you, Elizabeth!
So beautiful photos in the England country! Bravo!
