FIRST LET’S CATCH UP
Since starting in September 2016, I am more than happy how WhimsyandCosy has taken off.
New people can arrive all the time, in case you missed any posts the categories and archives are available, did you for instance enjoy the Wander through this English Village or Festive time Here
Talking of enjoying, hoping you may make my Zozie’s Leek and Pea Soup
Or… my yummy Pie
Also, as you know I love my reading too, What have you been reading? December reading was enjoyable for me, especially the book Mistletoe on 34th Street
TODAY’S brand new visit though, is of the festive tree display held at Lacock Abbey around December time….
I love trees, and the tree display inside the grounds of Lacock Abbey, in December, are something I look forward to seeing if I am lucky enough to get the chance.
The many trees – placed inside the famous Lacock Abbey Cloisters – (made famous in part – in recent years- by the filming of ‘Harry Potter’) are designed by different schools/groups/clubs/organizations/charities for the event.
It’s beautiful and calming, fun to walk around, and a joy to see. I want to share my wonderful time with you all out there as well.
Oh how I enjoyed this little wander around the little village of Lacock, it is in England in the south.
Often used for period dramas on television and movies because it is so pretty and old fashioned… with quirky buildings and interesting streets… it’s a LOT of fun to go for a stroll there.
Lacock, Love that village, it is popular tourist haunt as although small it has movie history (Harry Potter to Jane Austen) and it quiet, relaxing and calming in my experience. It does get busy at the most likely tourist times and seems to have tourist presence year round but it has a quality that generally charms.
I love a WALK, it doesn’t have to be miles, I just love getting out in the fresh air and seeing a view of LOTS of GREEN.
Earlier in the season Man of Mine and myself took ourselves out to walk with a certain AIM in mind, it was time for CONKER HUNTING!
For those that don’t know what a conker is, its HORSE CHESTNUT to many… and as such falls from the horse chestnut tree around September/October, the conkers encased in spiky cases that fall into two as they drop to the ground.
