This is England…

Hello peeps!  I hope you have had a lovely Easter Monday.  I thought I would take it easy today after yesterdays festivities and head out and soak up some more sun.

Taking inspiration from the lovely and stylish Laura my first outfit of the day:

On my quiet day I thought I would try and hunt out some local honey.  As a hay fever sufferer I’m willing to try anything to keep my sniffling nose and streaming eyes at bay.  Apparently eating local honey is supposed to help with the symptoms as the local pollen is already in your system and is meant to suppress any immune response.  In my quest I decided to head to my local farm shop- Malt Kiln Farm Shop.

I love this place.  It’s full of local, fresh and homemade produce. They even have fields where they allow to go go an pick strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, currants, gooseberries, asparagus and various other fruits and veggies.

Whilst I was there I also had to say HELLO to the cute and furry friends in the nearby fields…

Obviously I walked away with a few goodies too…

I couldn’t resist checking out there home grown flowers and purchasing a few too…

It was hard to believe that this farm shop was only a 15 minute drive from my house.  It was set in the most beautiful village that is worlds apart from the city.

There were rolling green fields…

…winding country roads…

…vintage cars…

…chocolate box houses…

…and historical buildings…

…this is England, and it is beautiful.

We all moan about taxes, politics and high petrol prices in England and really do forget how beautiful our country is.  I love England in the spring and even more in the summer when I think it looks gorgeous.  Long British summers are the best!  Full of history and culture, perfect and picturesque scenery, this is the real England.  So my international readers you better come over here and visit to see our beautiful country, ok!?!?

And no before you ask I haven’t taken up a position with the UK tourist board- I just love England! 🙂

What do you love about your country? Have you visited England before?
