Hello Sunshine!

I hope you're all experiencing this GlOrIoUs weather!  Doesn't the sun just make the world seem a better place?

We headed back to Chawton today to enjoy a spot of lunch and then a lovely walk down to St Nicholas'

Such amazing blue skies!

It was so cool and tranquil inside the church, the sun pouring through the stained glass was simply stunning!

Behind the little church Jane Austen's sister, Cassandra and also their Mother, Cassandra lie.  I find it a little sad that Jane is not with them here in this beautiful place that she loved so much.

Oh look, there's my dream home again! :)

Warning!  Cow Parsley overload coming up!

But the really are so so delicate and pretty I can't resist them!

The weather looks set to stay with us here in the south for a little bit longer, yay! Some hooky time in the garden tomorrow me thinks!



  1. Lovely pictures. I love little church gates.
    Its great to have a bit of sun. It really lifts your spirits.

  2. I love when the sun is out and there is a nice breeze...I could stay outside all day if I could...I just reading Pride and Prejudice!

  3. Wonderful pictures!! I love the one with the stunning blue sky!

  4. How gorgeous. I had a fever today and lay in the dark feeling miserable for most of it. Hopefully tomorrow ill make more of it. The church reminds me of the one we got married in. Loverly.
