the country life


If you ever have the chance to escape to the country you soon realise how revitalised you can feel within hours of arriving.  I recently had the opportunity to spend a few days at a friends beautiful property in the Blue Mountains.  We arrived after dark, put our bags down and headed for the already-lit open fire. The night was complete with a glass of red and an evening supper of a delicious country baked chicken.

The stars in the evening were magical, but they didn't prepare me for the view I saw from my bedroom window when I pulled open my curtains at first light.

During the course of the day, I spent time exploring their vast gardens: an endless surprise of Englishness... You'll see from the images that I fell into the spell of luscious green moss and twirling amber leaves.  I am quite sure there are fairies in there somewhere...
