If you are a regular follower of my blog you would know how much I was looking forward to a return to my homeland to catch up with family and friends.
|White Horse Hill, Uffington - return to my childhood|
With temperatures in Bangkok a scorching 34 degrees and humidity in the nineties, it was due to be a welcome change from my sweaty Betty Thailand life.
Imagine my surprise to find myself in the middle of a heatwave here in Great Britain, with temperatures, if not the humidity, matching Bangkok. Woo hoo, Great Britain!
As you will remember last week we were huddled round log fires and barbequing in the rain, sheltering under umbrellas. All change this week and the Gardens of Britain are looking glorious after a drop of rain and some sunshine. Here are some of my favourite Homes and Gardens pictures from my time here.
1. Friars Court: Hidden Beauty in Rural Oxfordshire
Celebrating its 100th year, this charming property with an unusual moat feature is worth a visit. The English Cream Teas were a hit too!
2. Ashdown House: Unusual Dutch-style house on the Berkshire Downs
This old Hunting Lodge has magnificent views from the roof
excellent National Trust guides.
3. Buscot Park - Oxfordshire Country House
This National Trust house currently is open for business as usual during the roof restoration project. Lavish house and beautiful gardens.
I hope you have enjoyed a little glimpse into my British Summer.
Thank you for your visit!
