faux country

It’s no secret on this blog (or anywhere in my life, as a matter of fact!), that I absolutely, desperately, long to live in the country – a lovely little cottage, a couple of cats, some vegetable beds…. the works. But unfortunately, real life insists on persisting, and for now I have to put up with visits to rural villages, and making the most of spotting little hints of the countryside in every day life. We live on a main road, and I took these photographs on the way to the shops a couple of weeks ago – it’s amazing how you can find such beauty in an otherwise concrete jungle.
(The bunting was actually outside Fabric Land, and the cake was from Costa – but they were both grand!)

    Lovely new blog header! And as to your ambition of country living I am sorry it hasn't yet worked out for you. However, at least you haven't given up on your dream and you know that one day you will achieve it.
