Country Roads





Fairytale illustration  -  circa 1900

"Lucky Hans"  exchanges a heavy package for a horse





Perthshire countryside in late September










19th century farmhouse 











Hundred year old beech hedges line the roadside






This gardener's cottage, complete with weather vane, dates from mid 1800s

Concealed behind the bushes is a beautiful garden producing
flowers, vegetables and fruit






Fox's eye view through a gap in the hedge






Popular spot to watch wild Atlantic salmon leaping, as they fight their way upstream
towards their spawning grounds in a glen a few miles away







Protected from the elements, in a medieval church   -   Pictish stone dating from around 800 AD


















Thank you for visiting

Hello!:) Beautiful tranquil country scenes especially the cows in a field. I like the rolling hills and lovely old houses you found to share. The country church is charming and the carved stone interesting.

These photos of your English countryside almost had me feeling I was there! The medieval church looks so interesting, and the row of nasturtiums a pretty fall sight. The Pacific salmon will soon be spawning up rivers and streams here as well. Always an amazing sight. Have a wonderful week.
