The Charm of England

As many before me have noted,  there is such charm in an English village and in a cottage with ancient rosebushes that bloom fragrant, perfect tea roses. This is where my husband and I will be for much of the coming year:  a small cottage in Surrey, England.  We're in a rural village but a mere forty-five minutes by train from London.

Our house abuts the local church, some thousand years old, with ancient tombstones surrounding it.  I'll have to refresh my memory about its history: I know it's intriguing, but more than that, it is a beautiful, peaceful place.


  1. Oh, what a beautiful setting. I look forward to many more photos and snippets from your life in Surrey. The U.S. already misses you. Lucky U.K.

  2. I love seeing what it looks like there. Charming. Are you drinking lots of tea?
