postcards from hampshire (and a giveaway)

dear friends,

i am super excited to share with you some photos from the english countryside and offer you a delightful giveaway.

— i don’t want to see the postcards, take me straight to the giveaway

today i spent the day with my dear friend caroline , who loves walking in the countryside as much as more than i do and always obliges me with a walk when i escape to visit her in her slice of english paradise.

today, we were dropped off at west meon and spent a lovely i-have-no-idea-how-long wandering back through quiet country lanes, bridleways and ancient woodlands to her home at brockwood park.

winter sunshine
the sun smiled at us through the trees in ancient woodlands,

winter sunshine
and watched over us as we wandered quiet bridleways.

hello tree
hello tree.

tiny beauty
we picked snowdrops, marvelling at their tiny beauty

sharing a table with a friend
and shared a table of nutritious food

i was so very happy to have this time with caroline; slowing down, catching up on each other’s lives, just happy to be together where words are often unncessary. she is a welcome & essential part of my tribe.
