By the time you read this, I’ll be visiting my mum in England (Sussex).
Hopefully, the rain will have cleared
And the trees will be out in full bloom.
We’re going on holiday
To Eastbourne, a town on the south coast,
So I hope to relax, spend quality time with my mum
And – of course, get some good views of the sea!
(All photos from previous trips back ‘home’.)
I won’t be visiting any of you this week, but a big thank you for popping by.
Do check out: Our World.
I’m a big fan of the quirky and the lovely. Here are some interesting sights I saw in England on my trip there last week.
It was surprisingly warm – and this huge magnolia tree was in full bloom
Next to a charming old thatched cottage from about 1550.
I found this pair of bellows on the outside of an old flint cottage, dated circa 1724.
A few doors down, a watchful dog
Keeps an eye on passers-by.
The faded beauty of an abandoned garage
Caught my eye.
The highlight of the weekend was my father’s birthday –
And a reunion with my family
These are my two sisters. (And they call me crazy!)

I’m off to England at the end of the week and this has inspired me to show you some of the adorable houses in West Sussex, where my sister lives.
What do you prefer?
Shakespearian with wonky beams…
… Or a cottage
With a thatched roof;
A leafy green window
Making art in the summer sun;
Or perhaps a house with iron railings
And bejewelled cobwebs.
The most popular house in England is probably the pub —
Now with gourmet food and a great sense of humour!

A BIG thank you to everyone for your comments on my posts while I was away.
Here are some big cloudy Sussex skies…
Clouds are a great topping for everything:
For hot horses in a field,
For my sister, the archer,
For bringing rain to the soft emerald hills
And for thatched cottages
Nestled in cozy valleys.
