The heart-warming joy of -

driving down winding country lanes arched with trees,
listening to Radio 4
(Gardeners' Question Time is just perfect),

lunch at a hushed country pub,

a dog going wild on rolling hills,

vintage shops
(like A G Hendy pictured here
another Hastings gem),

ivy that clings to everything
from stone walls to tree trunks. 

Just some of those English things
I'd stuff in my suitcase
in a jiffy. 

Sydäntä sykähdyttäviä: 

ajelu kiemurtelevilla pikkuteillä 
puiden muodostamien holvikaarten alla, 

lounas hämärässä maalaispubissa,

nummien korkeuksissa 
ilakoiva koira,

(kuten kuvassa näkyvä A G Hendy
toinen Hastingsin helmi),

muratti, joka peittää kaiken
kivimuureista  puunrunkoihin. 

Ihan vaan muutama sellainen juttu,
jonka tunkisin matkalaukkuuni oitis.

My heart says yes too. Beautiful photography and capture.

Saiskohan sillä vähän lisää murattia tänne kasvamaan,
jos huudetaan yhteen ääneen :)

Thanks from my heart,
darling sea-washed Kerrie!

Thanks so much dearest Carole, x
Unfortunately I can't even remember what the pub was called,
but it was located in Battle in East Sussex.

Kaunista kaunista, ja ihanaa harmaata maalia.
Öö, en osaa sanoa mitään järkevää näin aamutuimaan; kunhan vain nautin näistä ja kiitän.

Such rich beauty in all your photo's the black walls a prints speak to me soulfully...Given the right cottage I would so paint some flat chalky walls.
You always inspire the best, I so need to visit more often.


Rebecca Skye Watson said...

Oi kiitos ihana Liivia,

Rebecca Skye Watson said...

Thank you so much dear Dore
for such kind, lovely words, xxx
With all the bright whites that abound over here,
it's always so refreshing to see the bursts of colour
and darker hues used in English homes.
This pub interior was so lovely with its greys
and velvet sofas.
