Weekend In Photos

Another weekend has passed,
captured within a few images

I love the view from Holmbury Hill of
the Weald of Surrey and Sussex

The Weald crosses Sussex, Hampshire, Kent, and Surrey

What was once a vast forest 
is now a picture-perfect landscape of scattered farms and villages

While the rain melted the snow this week,
chilly temperatures froze local ponds
to create yet another scene calling my name :)

The River Thames, however, was not frozen
as seen by rowers in Bray

The River Thames used to freeze regularly
You can read about it in a previous post here

Have a great week :)

Lovely photos, our snow has all disappeared as well, but now we can see all the bright green shoots already poking themselves out of the ground. Love the Thames photo, so typically English, but my how cold it looks!

What lovely photos- I used to live right by the Thames and go on many wintery walks along its banks. Jane x

Beautiful images! I always think of the Weald, which I don't know well, as basically Jane Austen country.

That last photo makes me nostalgic for my home county!

Love these beautiful
photos, Laura! You
do such a fantastic
job of capturing the

Lovely, it's all so pretty and very English, with the rolling hills and rowers on the Thames.
