Tiny Town 6, Skelwith Bridge, Grassmere

 Here is block 6 of Tiny Town which I am making with Anne Marie



 And a petrol station.

 Lilac- breathe deeply. We’re in Cumbria at Skelwith Bridge. Autumn pics in link to compare with these.

 Skelwith Bridge.

 Looking right.

 Looking left.

 Wild campanula I think.

 Refreshingly cool stream.

 Wood Sorrel.

 Holiday cottages to let by the week.

 The smell of garlic.

 And Chesters at the end of the lane.

 Rhododendron and azalias grow in this part of the country as it has an acidic soil.

 Would you believe this is a tulip?

 They were in pots by Chesters.

 Fringed poppies with the smooth in a bright display.

 Not only can you shop here but you can also dine in or outside. The cakes are fab.

 View of the tubs.

 But enough pottering here we are off down a little lane to Grassmere.

 Look how dry the land is!

 You could film Westerns on the tops of these hills.

 Magnolia in Grassmere.

 House of Grassmere Gingerbread where I have taken you before.

 By the church, wedding guests arrived in these vintage busses.

 I kept thinking of Agatha Christie sorts of plots. Hee hee.

 The village was quite quiet.

 Wouldn’t you just love to live in one of these old farmhouses all snug in Winter with a log fire?

 There are a lot of places to eat here ranging from cakes right up to restaurant meals.

 I though was in the garden centre. Daughter would love that strawberry bunting!

 And probably all this red dottyness. Still there Deb, you’ve not keeled over in delight?

Then we’re off down the road towards Coniston. The other half next time.
