A walk around my village...

This weekend I'm back home in England :)

In the month I've been away, all the plants seemed to have burst into life and suddenly everywhere is so beautiful

Its so pretty after the bleakness of Winter

Our village is an old market town in the country & there are lots of old houses & cottages which are so full of character. I pass them every time I am walking the dog & drool over them :)

They are immaculately kept by their owners which makes them so beautiful and unique...I just had to take some pictures to capture their beauty this time of year!

Most of them are hidden behind a blanket of greenery & I think that adds to their charm!

I hope you enjoy looking at a few of them as much as I do walking by them :)

This house (same as first photo) has to be my favourite!

This always takes my eye!

A quaint little cottage with one awesome garden!

This is all you can see from the road ... but looks so inviting!

This is actually a house... I've not worked out how it works but still, it looks cute!
Hope you enjoyed your walk around my village!

  7. Ah Catherine.. I so envy you! You live surrounded by beauty, I thought I saw houses like that only in movies (english movies, the best ever..that is!).
    I did not enjoy the tour, I LOVED it and am asking for more :-)

  9. Oh, wonderful! I have never been to England, am dying to go for precisely this reason, all of the lovely greenery and cottages, so romantic!

  10. Thank you so much for stopping by at my blog!
    Wow I'm jealous about where you live... I dream about living in the countryside. Isn't that weird that I live in the BIG city Paris? Lol... I adore England and I will visit again soon. My best friend lives in Hendon.
    All the best,

  11. Where exactly in England?
