AFTER LUNCH......











.......I WOULD DRIVE A SHORT DISTANCE TO THE CARDINGTON VALLEY. THIS IS AN AMAZING AREA THAT IS PRESERVED BY THE NATIONAL TRUST. WHETHER YOU WANT TO SIT BY THE BROOK OR HIKE THE BRACKEN AND HEATHER HILLS, THIS IS AN AWESOME WAY TO SPEND PART OF YOUR DAY. FAMILIES WOULD PICNIC AND WADE IN THE STREAM AND COUPLES WOULD READ OR NAP, JUST TO ENJOY AND APPRECIATE THIS WONDERFUL PART OF NATURE.

Your photos make me sigh. They are so lovely. What is it about the english countryside that makes me wish I could live there? Only three generations back on my father's side,both my paternal and maternal great greats were from England. Maybe I'm homesick. Thank you again for sharing your lovely stay with us.
Hugs,
June

Hi Judy,
Welcome back! Wow five weeks in England! You lucky girl!All of the pictures are heavenly. I don't think you could bore me a bit; I adore everything English!!! That patio was just dreamy and to see where you spent your days and nights....pure magic! Thanks for sharing your trip with me and I look forward to seeing more pics.

P.S.
It was the Depression Glass Fan that I wanted to show you. Working on another stain glass project only this time it's with solder.

Hugs Annabelle

I want to go there and just build me a little log cabin.. nothing extravagant. I will have to grab ms. Junebug so she won't get tissy with me for going without her.

Just to sit in wicker and have tea.... Oh the relaxtion these pictures exude.

Are you packed yet Junebug?

Hey Lady- these look great- and very green. Did you have as much rain there as we did here? We're doing 3rd Sunday Market in Bloomington if you are up for an adventure! Then I am off to Florida on vacation with the family for a week and then right back to Kane! We are outside now and have been enjoying great sales, so I know ou will be glad to be back!
