Is there an English village in my future?

Oh to visit England in the summer when the roses are in bloom!! I love it. I am planning ( in my head anyway) a summer trip to the Cotswolds. I love to walk in the small villages and see those thatched roofs and roses rambling all over.

I have a picture I cut out from a travel magazine that I look at often --a small street in a Cotswold town. I also enjoy looking at my old Victoria magazine issues that feature England. I love London but really enjoy getting beyond that into the countryside.

This photo caught my eye too and has been added to my mental filing cabinet of dream trips. Driving in the Cotswolds poses a problem. Pink Boy hates driving in the United Kingdom. So I guess a driver is a must. I am so independent I hate to have a driver but if this trip happens I think we must.

For me so much of the enjoyment of travel is the planning, the learning about the area and then the actual trip is easy and I am free to enjoy the places and people as we encounter them.

Have a PINK day!


  1. The villages are also beautiful in the fall. We made an early October trip one year and it was picture perfect.

  2. What a quaint little house and garden!

  3. You captured this country side cottage so beautifully. I love England countryside in the spring & summer.
    Have a beautiful PS & holiday weekend.
