Echoes of my Neighbourhood – The Village

This post is for Jacqueline’s Echoes of my Neighbourhood challenge. Unfortunately it’s a day late as today was the first day I’ve had free where the weather was actually nice enough to leave the house! This week I decided to wander around the village and photograph a few of the views that I haven’t captured in a while.

There are some lovely buildings to be found throughout the village. The first picture below is the old smithy, though it’s now just used as a shed. The photograph beside it shows the post box which can be found in the front garden of someone’s house – the building used to be the post office, though it was converted a great many years ago!

The lanes around the village are wonderfully peaceful to walk around. I always love to see what’s growing on the verges.

Of course, I couldn’t resist taking a few close-ups of the flowers I found! Interestingly there was a sign next to the white flowers pictured below, asking that they not be cut as they’re rare. I’ve been trying to find out what they are but so far I’ve not had any luck.

I hope you all like the pictures. I’d love to know if you have a favourite.

    1. I adore dog roses. They’re beautiful to look at and their scent is gorgeous. You can smell them long before you see them! Thanks for visiting, Sabina. 🙂


  1. Thank you for sharing, you are indeed the storyteller I would sit and listen to with mouth and ears open! I loved all the photos but my favourites (I can never choose just one!) are the photos of the house and lane with the red post box. Reminds me of the scenes from Enid Blyton books I read growing up, I don’t know which part of the world you live in and its ok not to divulge it, but the pictures just brought back some lovely memories. So happy you had a nice day to walk about and take these. Happy day ahead to you little sweet storyteller.

    1. Thank you for the lovely comment. I’m happy to say that I’m on the border between Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire in the UK, though more than that I won’t divulge. 🙂 I’m very glad that you like the pictures.

    1. They are buttercups. There are lots of them on all the verges at the moment. I always find them a lovely sight. 🙂 Thanks for visiting, PJ.


    1. It looks lovely but unfortunately has no amenities at all! We have to drive to the next village just to get bread and milk. I’d rather live here than in the middle of a city, though. 🙂 Thanks for visiting.

      1. When we first moved here there was a farm shop that also acted as a post office once a week. They sold most of the essentials. Unfortunately they closed last year.

    1. They’re a a really pretty flower and they are a similar size to daisies. They actually have a lot less petals, though – they look like they have 10 but actually only have 5. I’ll eventually work out what they are! Thanks for visiting. 🙂
