“Oh, to be in England now that April’s there,”
Robert Browning’s words could not have rung more true for me this springtime in England.
Simply put it’s pretty, breathtakingly pretty,
especially in the spring.
Springtime in England ~ rolling fields dotted with sheep tending their newly born lambs,
and endless stretches of bright yellow rape melting into the horizon.
Gathering primroses on a woodland walk.
Springtime in England ~ where the trees are laden with blossom.
and everyone’s delighted to be eating outside again,
there’s nowhere nicer than an English country pub.
Wandering through beautiful gardens
and garden centers.
Springtime in England ~ at picturesque villages like Turville,
this one especially beloved by movie makers.
(This is the windmill from ‘Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang’)
With their cottages,
ancient country churches
Springtime in England ~ by the River Thames,
meandering along the towpath, bursting with spring growth.
Springtime in England ~ just warm enough for a game of that very English past time, lawn bowls.
Springtime in England ~ lucky me that I was there to enjoy it,
Where were you this springtime?
