To The Manor Born


"Younger than Springtime am I " is what I feel like singing glorious weather warms the heart,mind and soul and recharges us from the darkness of winter.
















If you know me well enough by now you 'll know I am penchant to wandering about either in the countryside or around my village heart . This week has seen me wander 5 minutes from my place of work to a mystery manor it is on the side of a much older manor and is Victorian and was very grand in it's day. I am hoping when the owner finally answers the door to actually wander round the gardens but it is ramshackle now but there is a elegant beauty about the place.







The Veranda  of The Manor house 

Moss covered now but once was stunning I am sure, it is still beguiling.

This cottage is just called simply "The Cottage"



The lane I walk to work.

  15. love the blossom and cottage picture, almost 1970's jigsaw puzzle material. My fav though is the first with the shadow of the plant pots, especially on the wall.
    It is nice you appreciate what is on your doorstep. I live in a dirty little town with dog sh*t on the streets, but in other respects it has great views, we are in the country, the walk along the back road is lovely as the seasons change and the sunsets amazing.
