Rolling hill skies

I’m off to visit my parents in England.

They live in a small village

Nestled at the foot of the rolling hills of the Downs.

Golden fields.jpg

For me, the golden fields

And wide open skies

Embody the beauty of the English countryside.

Blue swirls sky.jpg

And finding two horses nuzzling each other

Is just the cherry on top of the cake.

(I’ll be back in a week, but the Our World link will be up and running as usual on Monday evening.)

  4. As an anglophile and English prof, I have always loved the English meadows, the heath, the wide skies. You depict that here beautifully.

  5. Actually reminds me of the prairie land around here, but maybe we’re generally a little flatter. The expanse of the land and sky–love it! Enjoy your trip. 🙂
