  1. Ha, so true!
    I like daydreaming.
    I am be anything, anyone in my daydream.

    Ohh, I love this, Cherry. Sometimes I’m way too logical, going from here to there on the shortest path between two points. I love it when imagination kicks in and I see different things because of wandering around a bit. :)

    Speaking of which, Astrid and I will be flying back to England on Saturday for 6 days, with Chris once again as our host. On Monday the 7th we’ll be at Blists Hill Victorian Town, in Ironbridge at 1 p.m., with any who want to join us. IF you are able to make it, we’d love to see you again!

      I will be there :-) I have often wondered since your last visit if you would visit Blists Hill on your next visit to England.

      I nearly went there last weekend rather than visiting Ironbridge. The chance that it might rain made me save that visit till later. Now I know why ;-)

      • Ha… I’m planning a canal boat holiday in Birmingham!
        Yes, a trip from Birmingham to Worcester by boat. :)
        Maybe if I take a cruise up the River Severn from Worcester, I might be able to see you guys in Telford? Ha :)

    As my blog header says -
    “The depressing reality of the present is in some way rendered more palatable when laced with heavy doses of nostalgia;
    That it is a fantasy makes no difference, the pleasure of living in the past is that our dreams can be selective.”
    Now, where shall I go, let me see? – “Imagination will take you everywhere.” –
    - at the speed of light!
    Bodnant Gardens. :)
    (Sorry, never been to Powis. Shall I get the car out?)

    • CherryPie says:

      I would enjoy sharing a walk round Bodnant Gardens with you :-)

      Powis is well worth a visit, it ranks in my top 4 favourite gardens to visit :-)

    Has a sort of autumny feel to it.

    I love the quote and the wonderful pathway :)
