Several enjoyable months out and about taking photos

The gardens at Cliveden House, Taplow, Berkshire, England

Those of you who pop in often will know I love to walk and take photos. Sometimes I go off for a ‘jolly,’ and write about what I have seen and experienced, such as the gorgeous country homes, villages, churches and cathedrals, we have in this green and pleasant land we call England. Other times I just like to show the photos.

Well, this time I am just showing photos for you to enjoy. Light relief from the stresses and strains of everyday life.

Cliveden House: made notorious because of what became known as ‘The Profumo Affair.’

    • Jacquie, I loved them, they were so pretty even in the rain. I have always wanted to go because it is where my Nan spent an afternoon (having tea of course) on the day she died. She was on a trip with a friend and on the way home on a coach, said she had a headache, closed her eyes and never woke up. This was in 1968 and she was 81. I am so glad she saw something of beauty and had a lovely last day out.

    • I thank you. I usually do a whole blog on one place I visit – you can find them in archives – but not had the time of late. If you like grand historical houses and gardens churches, cathedrals and villages and countryside to take a wander around my blog posts. Some lovely places. 🙂
