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.
Considering where to go? Like the countryside? If you are in England, If you are visiting England, this guide has tips for a wonderful day out , visiting an impressive house and amazing garden, full of beauty and history. I can recommend STOURHEAD deep in the English countryside.
It was the most WONDERFUL trip out recently, Man of Mine and Myself took ourselves visiting a place in the English countryside called STOURHEAD, its within the county of Wiltshire in England.
Stourhead boasts a house and massive (6250 acres!) of beautifully landscaped gardens.
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.
Unwind, De-stress, Relax, Chill, Breathe ..it’s what we ALL NEED.
How do YOU achieve this? One of my most trusted ways, PROVEN to me time and time over… is NATURE.
If I can get myself in nature, even just for a little while, I feel happier and clearer, stress just MELTS AWAY. I so recommend it to each of you.
…its all I can say to the BEAUTY of the season lately, I am a real one for NATURE, I love beautiful things… they make me skip and dance and smile and gaze…
The surrounds I see as I meander my way through life are so amazing to me, it doesn’t matter how often I see the same place, it changes, grows and holds new delights EVERY SINGLE TIME… (like the people I love!)
I love to photograph and I have so many pictures lined up for you to see they will carry me through the season well, I am unstoppable with a camera! I have no need to put it away as I go on a walk as I will only wear the zip out on my handbag.. open shut open shut 🙂
