Summer in the English Countryside

england sheep and lara flowers

I took so many photos in England, I am not really even sure how to begin making these into digestible posts. Somerset is simply everything you’d imagine the English countryside to be: rolling green hills, pastures of grazing sheep, pubs, tweed, an abundance of wellies, and charming people. Above is Lara gathering a bucket of flowers from her garden and some of the sheep we encountered on a walk to the flower fields.


Above is the lovely Saffy, in the flower fields.

These are two lovely Danish girls who were also volunteering at the farm for a week. I loved their lighthearted, happy approach to life always writing in their travel journals, rowing the boat, reading, or making watercolors.


And, Victoria Sandwich, made by a neighbor for our flower class. Eeeek! The best cake I’ve ever eaten!

  1. All your photos are so beautiful! I find myself pinning them, and I always give you a credit by writing that the photos are from your blog. I was thinking that not everyone will do this, so just a suggestion, you caption your photos so that you are credited. Just a friendly suggestion. x

  2. Your website is so inspirational. I myself worked as a florist in Oregon and California before I moved to The Netherlands. I’ve picked it up again and planted a beautiful garden with flowers for picking. While looking at these photographs I’m getting excited for my garden to bloom!

  3. after reading this and seeing these pictures, all i can think about is having an English summer vacation, i was wondering if you could tell how to volunteer for Manor Farm Cottage Flower Farm in Somerset? do i send them an Email? i tried asking them by their facebook page but they never replied back, so i would really appreciate it if you could help me with this.
    enjoy what remains of this summer 🙂
