In England’s green and pleasant land..
We spent the Bank Holiday weekend with family in the light, clean air of the country, marvelling at the fresh greens and bright colours of early summer, whiling away happy hours reading papers that got read, drinking wine and watching dogs happily snoring in the sun.
Their’s is a garden that represents all that is good about England; It’s a place were time stands still yet life buzzes around.
It’s a joy just to walk around and breathe in.
And the children love the freedom of space..
(Taken just for Lauren..)
They have the most amazing tree..
Like something straight out of Doctor Seuss and The Lorax..
I loved it..made me giggle and sigh.
There was much playing of football with cousins and dogs till the sun went down. Gentle, simple..heavenly.

There’s nothing like an English garden! So beautiful and green 🙂
It’s that vista..try as we might..it’s hard to find in London! xxx
Unless you got some serious megabucks lying around under your mattress.
What a wonderful holiday! The garden photos are beautiful but I really love the ones of your people.
I try and creep up on them! I definitely prefer them to the posed variety.. xxx
Really wonderful photographs and some great spontaneous moments. Wow that pink tree against the clear blue sky! The picture of you and your daughter is beautiful.
Thank you! That tree was spectacular..just didn’t seem real!! xxx
It looks like something from the background of a beautiful Miyazaki anime film.
When I was a child in South Africa I had a puzzle that was an “English country garden” and it looked almost exactly like these pictures 🙂
Y’see…time standing very, very still!! the cycle of life..but such a timeless quality..I can see why people get obsessed with gardening..I fail on the small garden we have! xxx
