The fast changing landscape of an English sky. In summer.
You want flowers? You have to have showers!
I’m losing the best of the English summer, the colors of sky and these places are very beautiful. Failure to make good tea at 5pm 🙂
We spent summer evenings by the fire, first with tea, then with wine!
Gracias and Adios Carlos!
Great shots. I’ve got to visit someday.
Thank you Tom and yes you must visit some day!
Is this where you live in the UK? I keep expecting Miss Marple or Inspector Barnaby to pop out somewhere. Very beautiful.
Where would English village life be without them! Lovely to see you here, thanks Margie!
These photos have an immediate calming effect. I literally felt tension drain away – and I wasn’t even aware that I had any tension at the time! They are really beautiful scenes. Enjoy it while you are there – you do have the best of both worlds!
I’m sure there is a soundtrack to go with this, just for you Gaynor!
A stunning , dreamy, breathtaking English sky!
Where we dream of some summer sunshine! Thank you IT!
Ah! Thatched roof, English garden! I can but dream!
One day Annie! I can see you making your way down the narrow roads in this part of the world!
Thank you so much John! Have you been to this part of the UK?
the sky really creates a mood here 🙂
It’s that “mustn’t grumble” mood which of course never stops anyone!
Ditto the comment above about Marple or Barbanby appearing round the corner … idyllic murder-mystery location 🙂
Long may those murder-mysteries remain the stuff of fiction although I do wonder sometimes when watching the local news . . . .
That was ‘Barnaby’ by the way 😉
Cool houses. I’ve never seen houses like that. Guess I’ll have to travel around in England, Irland & Scotland some day.
Yes, you must come and explore these sceptered isles! Meanwhile I am longing to go to Iceland . . . .
Thank you Alison! Those clouds really do hang so close to the ground.
So pretty! Makes me miss home. My parent’s home that is. They’re back in the english countryside.
I am sure you must enjoy your visits home, as I’m sure your parents enjoy seeing you! Plus you have those pretty little chicadees running around there!
I really love this work Patti from photography to your writing truly very inspirational thanks for sharing this ,by the way i love the new looks of your theme too 🙂
Jake, your kind words mean so much, thank you!
you have no Sahara desert weather conditions there!
my mother lived on the island Ruegen, Baltic Sea – similar weather there …
Frizz, you are right about it not having Sahara weather conditions but nearby Dartmoor is classified as a Wet Desert – the first environmental disaster in British history! It seems we have been upsetting the delicate balance of life on earth forever.
Thank you for the visit to your mother’s ivy house and now I want to know more about Ruegan!
These are ridiculously lovely, Ms. K! They remind me of something from a fairy tale (or of times past… with all the history that must be in those places)! I LOVE the dramatic skies and stunning vibrant colors! Very nice low vantage point in your last shot, too (was this taken from a ‘lower’ path, etc. or are you like me in that having a camera makes it difficult not to roll around on the ground to get a fun shot?)!
I was a little concerned that the photos might be so sweet as to induce a sugar overload but that sky really has been putting on a show and a half! The last shot was indeed taken from a lower path but with a snuggle into the soft hedge. I can see you having fun out there in the grassy rolls!
Really beautiful pictures Patti. It will be a difficult thing to find the favorite. Great post.
Thank you Arindam and summer greetings to you!
Almost impossibly picturesque! The dramatic skies, clearing so suddenly, and the vantage point of the last shot showing off the glorious flowers against the blue sky, all quite wonderful.
You’re not going to want to come back to the US, I fear!
The sky with those clouds have been the focal point of so much summer drama – the weather as a muse to all but the farmers . . . wish I could bottle some of that air for you! 🙂
These are absolutely stunning. I love them. Makes me want to move, especially as we inch (maybe sprint) closer to regular 100-degree days here in Texas.
