Lovely Weekend

This weekend we visited family in the Cotswolds and then in Herefordshire. The weather has been perfectly beautiful. And the drive, once we left the motorways, was lovely.

The COG's cousins in Herefordshire live in the most idyllic spot possible, and they have a beautiful house and garden. It was lovely to be out in the country and hear birdsong and see the amazing views of countryside.

Here are some random pictures I took from the car on the way. You may have to click on them to see them really well.

First picture is for Vivi - a flowered Mini - I missed the sign on the back that said "this car runs on fairy power'.

Everywhere there are fields of the most intense bright yellow. They are rape fields - growing rapeseed used for making vegetable oil. In America, they'e renamed it Canola Oil, but it's the same thing.

A miscellaneous motorist with a unique hairdo. I'm sure he was coming from Brighton.

A Cricket game in progress. Cricket is always so picturesque with the white clothes against the green cricket lawns.

That motorist doesn't have to worry about falling asleep on the road -- can't even lean his head back against the seat.

Thanks for the photos.
