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.
