We’ve had a very mixed week weather-wise in the UK but, on Friday, the sun came out and it was glorious. The fields were gold and green, and there were masses of sloe berries in the hedgerows. I love their deep blue bloom.
We visited one of my favourite villages – Turville. Tucked away in the rolling Buckinghamshire countryside, Turville is a hidden gem with pretty cottages and a rather famous windmill that was the home of the Potts family in the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The village has also had a staring role inn The Vicar of Dibley, An Education and The Shell Seekers and it isn’t hard to see why beacuase it really is the perfect English village.
I have a weakness for roses and here are two beauties I spotted in Turville. Aren’t they glorious?
There are few things more quintessentially English than a country cottage with roses around the door!
