Best of the Cotswold s 1/7

When I posted my three week set of collages of the Cotswolds in August/September several of you said you would like to see several of the images full size so I make no apology for repeating those ones and a couple of my more favourite ones from the set.

This is one of my favourites of Mill Dene Garden, near Blockley. This is the place, if you recall, where the ingredients to put your own lunch together are in the conservatory, complete with an honesty box.

Beautiful composition Brian, sorry about the wrong name, my wife was chatting as l was typing
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tony, don't worry about the name, when you get to my age it is called a "senior moment."

Oh yes, Brian...I remember that place and the Honesty Box. Thanks for the larger shot!
Brian Walbey: A pleasure Ginnie. When you both grace these shores, as I'm sure you will in the future, you must put this on your list of places to go, it isn't a large place but it is very nice.
A delightful scene Brian. although the Cotswolds is on our doorstep, we don't go much. don't know why really!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. It has never been far way from us for the last 20 years but last year was my first visit.
Chocolate Box, jigsaw and/or postcard. It has all the right elements.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila, just what the judge said when I put it in a recent competition at my club, hence it didn't win, what do they know!

Brian Walbey: If this overflowed I suspect the house bahind me would be in trouble Alan. Thanks for your comment.
It is so pretty Brian.The weeping willow is gorgeous. They are so lucky to be living there.
Brian Walbey: It would be nice to look out at this every morning Ron.
Absolutely gorgeous Brian. A great spot for a bit of lunch.
Brian Walbey: It is lovely Janet and we enjoyed our lunch on the lawn that day.
