TAKE A BREAK

I have had a very nice day.
I've accomplished a lot today, both in the garden and
indoors. We also had time for a break so we drove to
one of our favorite places, Bennington Village, to feed
the ducks and have a walk around the village.
This is some of the things we saw on our walk.

The duck pond.


Cute sign.


Daffodils in full bloom.


The old water tower.


A cute house.


Old letterbox.


A pink cottage.


School mistress house.


Primary school.


The gate keepers house at Lordship Gardens.


St Peter's church (built in 1170).

Note to Miss Wink:
This is the village I've been going on about and I will
show you around because there's so much more to see.
How about a picnic?

Oh. My. Lord.
This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen!
It's so spot on what I like, can't wait to see it!
A picnic sounds terrific.

I knew you'd say that! :)
There's more to see, much more.
Make sure you bring comfy shoes.

Looks like you had a lovely day. :)

Miss Wink said...

Oh we just have to get a house there!
They've got everything I desire; a local fair every year, a brownie club (!!), a flower club and so on..*sigh*.
Let's get a house to you and Mark with a little guesthouse for me. We can have a kennel, chicken, grow things in the garden.... Wouldn't it be the best thing?

Punk In Writing: I sure was! :D

Miss Wink: Ha ha ha, sure, as soon as we win on the lottery. :D

Wow, this looks like such a lovely village with the beautiful houses and cute details like the old letterbox.

Lovely wheather you seem to have! We have had snow until yesterday, when the sun was shining and melting all the snow. Today; no snow and no sun, just grey.
Wonderful place for a walk! It seems so peaceful!

Little Rascal said...

Betty Lou: Ja, det ar skitmysigt.
Jag visste dock att du skulle namna Midsummer Murders. :))

A Red Lipstick: It's the cutest place.
We aim to live there one day with a bunch of kids, Bull Terriers and chickens. And hopefully Miss Wink. :))

Zizzi: It's been like this for some time now.
I haven't worn a jacket, that's how nice it is.
Hope spring comes soon to you too.

Miss Wink said...

Rascal: I hope Mark doesn't find your last sentence weird.."We aim to live there one day with a bunch of kids, Bull Terriers and chickens. And hopefully Miss Wink"
Poor man, he's doomed to have your silly friend in his backyard! ;))

Little Rascal said...

Miss Wink: Nah, he'll be delighted, you can be our nanny! :))

Fleur de Guerre said...

Oh how I would love to live in a village like that! My man has ambitions of being his own lord of the manor in a big country pile, so maybe I'll get my wish one day :)

Little Rascal said...

Fleur de Guerre: Yeah, and we can be neighbours and have BBQ's and water the plants for each other every time we go on holiday. :D

Miss Wink said...

Oh, so I get to take care of your snotty kids?
Well that's alright if you provide me handsome men to consume ;))

Little Rascal said...

Miss Wink: Ha ha ha, it sounds like you're some kind of vampire. :))
