Monday's Meanderings ~ A Rich Tapestry

If you've ever wanted to meander through the English countryside,  then you must stop by to visit
 Linda at A Rich Tapestry.
 
 
When Linda and her husband retired, they moved to Yorkshire,
in the north of England, to support their daughter by
 being available to look after their two grandchildren.
In their free time, they visit various parts of England, and
Linda is always posting about her journeys.
 
  
I love her photos and snippets of history and
feel like I am traveling along beside her. 
I feel like she is sharing with me England as I've
always imagined it would be.
 
 
 Linda is interested in public gardens and garden design, local history, architecture, and projects that encourage communities to appreciate their local heritage.
 
 
From rolling countryside . . . 

 
 to stone cottages and walls . . .
 
 
history and age abounds everywhere.
 
 
 England even has palm trees.  Who knew?
 
 
Linda's husband is Italian and they have a second home in the countryside of Italy, south of Rome, which they visit several times a year.  But for today ~ we're limiting our meanderings to England.  
 
 
I hope you've enjoyed our journey and will stop over to visit 
Linda in person and follow along on her jaunts around the English and Italian countryside.

This post is just gorgeous and reminds me so much of the rolling hills of East Tennessee where I was born and raised. Your blog is so inspirational, and my profile would read almost exactly like yours, except I have one son almost out of college, am an education secretary/dyslexia tutor and can't garden worth beans! lol! I am joining your blog and would be delighted if you would join mine!
Best,
Laura at sundayview.blogspot.com
