A Winter Sunshine Stroll up the hill...
I've got another 5 days of photographs from Thailand to upload, but here's a few from Lustleigh to demonstrate that 'there's no place like home'. We went for a quick stroll up the hill to Hatherleigh woods in the late afternoon wintry sunshine yesterday - it was just delightful!
This is looking up the Wray Valley toward Moretonhampstead. You can't see our row of terraces but they lie below the trees to the South West of the picture.
Into the woods - this picture is a bit dark, but Tilly is in the forefront. It's been such a mild winter that everything is budding.
Looking down on the village, the church tower is to the left and the houses curl up Mapstone Hill. The smaller pic shows Syd in the foreground.



















But stay - what is this fey, shy creature with large horns peeking over the 5bar gate? It's that DH of mine playing silly buggars.

It's easy to forget how stunning this country is at times. Your photos look amazing.

Hello!

Yes, I've been absent for a spell but sometimes the real world intrudes on the blogosphere...

Your photos are so nice. You live in beautiful country. Lucky girl.
