Most of my adult life and certainly after my first visit to England in 1985 I began to think of the U.K. as ‘home’ away from home. I absolutely fell in love with all things British and have returned 3 times since the initial vacation.
I love the weather—okay, I know I haven’t actually lived in it for any prolonged period of time and might (as some suggest) grow tired of all the gray days. I don’t think so. I am so much more comfortable in cool weather than I am in warm so I believe I’d love the fact that most of the year you really need a sweater.
Since I have a passion for gardening I am sure I’d enjoy growing some of the amazing plants that thrive in England’s climate.
One huge bonus would be that I could grow peonies—which I can’t do in Southern California (not enough cold weather).
Isn’t this pretty? Yep, I think I could live in England…if only I could talk all of my friends and family into moving there with me.
Happy Friday! Do you ever believe you love something/somewhere so much, you must have been a resident in a former life?
