Biddestone, Wiltshire Pt.3

Now you see us leaving Castle Combe and making our way to Biddestone.



We have arrived, and not too sure what this is at the side of the village pond but looks interesting?




Beautiful colouring. We will just walk around and take in the scene as we are planning to stop off at a few places before returning to our cottage. The thing that I so appreciate in my country is that one can take in lots of beautiful places on just a 45 minute journey.
















If you play 'I Spy' I wonder what you will see?

Hi Barbara. Love the shot of the church through the trees! Lovely pics :)

Vee said...

Well I found a kitty in the window and everyone knows that a kitty in the window is an automatic win. Lovely photos!

Sara said...

Those hollyhocks against the stone wall are just gorgeous! You certainly captured some little corners of loveliness with your photos.

What a nice surprise. I clicked the hollyhock picture big to make sure I was seeing hollyhocks and low and behold, there is a sweet little kitty in the window. Sweet.

Barbara,
I am so glad I found your blog. Through it I am able to visit places I would never be able to otherwise. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful country and its history with us.

I just read all three of your "Wiltshire" posts. The one picture that you said was a war memorial reminded me of one of my all time favorite movies, "Mrs. Miniver". You remind me of her somehow...someone it feels like I know.

That is beautiful! I love all the pictures.

I really enjoy touring parts of England with you. You take lovely photos.

I hope your heart is full of summery sweetness.

Aha - something beginning with'c' - how nice! And the weather looked lovely too!

Angie said...

Thanks for the pictures - it's always nice to be able to travel vicariously through other people's blogs.

Sue said...

Barbara,
You were asking about "Mrs. Miniver". Check out this link for it. It was a wonderful old movie, you might want to check out.

(Thanks for visiting my new blog.)

I really love the first photo of the road with all those wonderful trees. My type of place. I was just looking at your photos with my daughter and we thought it was like Miss marple Land. You guys are so luck to have such beauty around you.

Melanie said...

That is all so beautiful Barbara. Thank you for sharing it.

I remember the pond and the pub at Biddestone where we had a lovely lunch in 1993.

We spent two weeks in Britain in June this year, and from the very first day I could feel England creeping back into my heart, and my love affair with England began all over again.

I have a love affair with England also. Must be my Rudd, Brooke, Carroll and Leigh ancestors. These are my kinds of pictures. My favorite. Thanks for sharing.

Just loved the hollyhocks against the building, and of course the kitty in the window. Those hollyhocks are huge!! It is always fascinating to view all the pictures. You can almost imagine being there!!
