A church in Moreton-in-Marsh.
Roaming through the village.
I would have loved to peek inside.
Happy Hump Day!

That last pic is my favorite. Feel like I’m Gandolf is gonna come out and I’m gonna go on a Lord of the Rings adventure … which would be awesome. :)
This area really brings up thoughts of Merry Olde England. We a village down the path from Bath but ran to catch the lat train back to London. I do want to go back! Cool pix
I loved my visit to the Cotswolds 6 or 7 years ago. The villages are so… quaint. Isn’t that the best way to describe them? I remember walking from village to village through people’s yards (permissible, believe it or not!) Like walking through a storybook.
Your last line hit it on the head. It is like a storybook! I would love to go back someday and spend more time exploring.
Such great memories of the Cotswolds! I went there for the first time last spring, and was lucky enough to meet one of their most famous residents. [http://wp.me/p2SHpT-o5]
Thanks Barb! I loved it so much! It reminded me of Ireland.
That’s so funny. I was just in Ireland and it reminded me of California suburbs. Only with better pubs.
Seriously? Where in Ireland were you?
I went over on the car ferry from Scotland to Glasgow and then drove around the south of Ireland and over to Kerry. Don’t get me wrong — it was gorgeous, even in the dead of winter. But it was just so dang prosperous. It’s been a few decades since I was there, and apparently those little thatched roof cottages burning their blue peat smoke are an endangered species with less than 1000 left. (But if you want to buy one, journalist Cormac McConnell has just written “Who wants to buy our beautiful thatched cottage in Clare, Ireland?”– http://goo.gl/M9UgwI)
Nice, sorry I’ve been so out of the loop!
Great to see you again M!!! Thank you.
Absolutely gorgeous pics, Susie. Convinces me that I do really need to see England (but Ireland first). The flowers at the top of your page ARE from your garden, right ??? :)
Hi Paul! Thank you so much! I agree that with your love for the Irish, you should go there first. The flowers are from the Lidcote Gardens! I wish they were mine…. :)
Who wouldn’t want to peek inside? My imagination tells me we would be transported to another place and time. Wonderful photos, Susie!
I think so! A spry older gentleman draws on his pipe and rocks in a chair while his sweet wife pulls fresh baked bread from the oven.
Mmmm…I can smell the bread. ;-)
Great photos–they bring back pleasant memories.
It is a fabulous and breathtaking part of the world!
The sun is shining here today Susie!
I bet it’s glorious Jim! I loved your neck of the woods!
The finest spot indeed!
Terrific photos! I would have loved to look inside too. Picturesque looking village.
Everywhere we went there were these amazing little fairtytale vignettes!
Thanks Phil and thanks for the tweets! I’m still struggling with my cold and have to catch up with everyone!
Feel better soon – it’s finally Spring! I just got back from Vegas. 80 out and sunny! So nice.
It was mid 70’s yesterday and today. Sunday – SNOW!!!!
Lovely photos, Susie.
Here’s a good book… ‘The Storied Life of A J Kilkry’.
Is that top one a photo or did you paint it?
It’s a photo of an amazing church. There were parishioners inside getting ready for mass. It was very unadorned compared to most churches we visited, but that back door was a surprise! It was late in the day and the lighting was very tricky.
I’ll check out the book. By the way, thanks for the breast cancer link on Linked In. I didn’t know how to respond to you on my iPad.
Oh wow – those are fantastic photos! I’m with you, let’s peek inside. I don’t care if someone’s home. I can run pretty fast.

I felt like I was a peeping Tom with all the photos I took. I hope I didn’t send someone running for a bathrobe! Thanks so much.
These pics are “hideous”!! wink, wink.
Truly!!! Thanks Maria!
Love this! Wonderful photos. Reminds me of the cottages in Stratford-upon-Avon.
We drove through Stratford, but didn’t stop. There are so many places to explore. We’ll have to go back! Thanks Gwen!
You don’t have to wish that you can look into the row of houses. I’ve been following you and your writing shows me that your mind has a key to every door.
Awwww! Thanks so much Tom! You made my day. :)
You manage to say a lot in 20 words, Susie. Hope your week is going well.
Hugs from Ecuador,
Thanks Kathy! It was a beautiful trip.
How picturesque! That definitely isn’t downtown Detroit, Susie, not that I’ve ever been there, either.
Nope! It’s out in the country called the Cotswolds about an hour or two outside of London. It’s a lot like Ireland.
Nice! You said a lot with only twenty words. The picture are just gorgeous.
Thanks so much! I took a quite a few!
Beautiful Captures – thanks so much for sharing:) Makes me want to slow down and stroll and take my time exploring. Happy Hump Day!
It’s definitely worth the time!
That church and, to a lesser degree, the cottage, looks like a movie set for Hobbiton.
I know! These were Tolkien’s stomping grounds.
Nice! Very tranquil and old-timish.
It was so hard not to stop and take pictures everywhere! I was obsessed with taking a little piece of its beauty home with me!
Susie, that last pic looks like the B & B where hubby and I stayed in Stow-on-the-Wold. It was the perfect setting for sight seeing around Oxford and Warwickshire. And of course Strafford-upon-Avon. You know. A real famous bloke lived there. Darn, what was his name? William…. :)
We stopped in those towns too! I would go back there anytime! The driving was treacherous…
I have always wanted to visit the Cotswolds. :)
All the little towns are so cute and like a picture postcard. The people are like the Irish, but don’t tell them!
I love buildings like that! Makes me pine for England.
It was gorgeous! Just like I imagined. Thanks for stopping by Catherine!
Just beautiful.. I like the idea of 20 word Wednesday.:)
Thanks Linda! I couldn’t call it Wordless Wednesday with 20 of them!
So beautiful. Reminds me of the chateau in the movie Ever After.
I will have to check that out! Thanks for stopping by!

Wow! Look at this "hideous" ice castle. Hideous=Awesome. I love exploring Colorado while enjoying its 300 sunny days.
