Every time we visit England, a dear family friend always has the American flag draped over the doorway along with the English flag. (And some Union Jacks are sitting in a milk bottle just out of view.) What a welcome sight after a long flight!
Forget-me-nots under an apple tree... I took so many photos of flowers in England! Can you see the bee loaded down with yellow pollen? This bee looks very different from the bees in Georgia! I had never seen pollen like that before! And that apple blossom!
A field of rape that will take your breath away even from a great distance ... the yellow is so intense. This is made into rapeseed oil and since it is grown in Canada also, this is called Canola oil in America. Why can't we grow this in the USA? Americans, wouldn't you love to see this growing?
These are just a few of the photos that we took when we were last in England... these were taken in May of 2010. I don't even have any photos of any of the smiling faces that greet us when we arrive there. Take my word for it, they are even more beautiful than any of these photos.
