July in the Countryside

Yesterday I drove to Rippon to meet my sister for lunch. On the way back I explored a side road and paused to photograph a couple of farm scenes.

We're smiling but this was a bittersweet occasion because Peggy is moving on Friday. Now she'll be 700 miles away!


  1. Linda, thanks for linking your barns this week. I hope that you will be able to find some more. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  2. You can at least Skype and she can show you, virtually, her new surroundings.

  3. Pretty scenes and a nice picture of you and your sister. I know you will miss seeing her. Maybe you can plan a vacation around a visit to her new home.

  4. Pleasant countryside. I'm sure you'll have chances to visit on a regular basis.

  5. Lovely spots!!! It's hard when family moves away! Thank goodness for good phone reception!!!

  6. It's hard, being far from those you love. At least when you get together it will be 'quality time' - not worth travelling 700 miles just for a cuppa!
