And no, everything in England isn't quaint and rural, but I thought it would be fun to share a few things that are.

Lovely pics, but you'll give our American friends the wrong idea you know ;-)

Where did you get all these photos?

Google Images. I look for pictures from public sites (BBC, Wikipedia, that sort of thing) - I think that is OK, as most of them allow reproduction for private use. Oh, and some are stock photos from Stock.xchng. I'm not a good enough photographer to take them myself!

It looks wonderful!

Well Dressing? I'm curious!

We drove to Chipping Norton today and the hedgerows look fantastic this time of year! I'm a useless photographer too, though I'd love to be able to take nice close-ups. I think (maybe) I might be getting a better camera for my birthday, though. That might help!
