  1. 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…. 🙂


  2. 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.


  3. 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.

      1. 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.
        Thanks Ted!


    1. 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!


  4. 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 ??? 🙂


    1. 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…. 🙂


  5. 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. []


          1. 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?”–


  6. 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.
