Ah, pictures of England!  These are flowers in Ken and Enid's gardens around their house.  Ken had been quite the gardener.  Roses in the front....

Fox Glove on the side of the drive....

More in pots in the front by the main door...

Here's the backyard.  Terry is getting the outdoor table set up for Enid.  The greenhouse has veggies in it.  There is a strawberry patch behind that.

There's the bird feeding station.  Filled that up every day!  Behind it is the raspberry area, plum tree, apple tree, and lettuce.

This is a shot where I'm behind the greenhouse looking at the house.  So cozy.

Ken was very organized.  Labels on many many things.  I love the jars of stuff....

gardening things all sorted out.  The garage is just over flowing this stuff!

But the workbench was a mess!  Just couldn't believe the messy pile there!!!  Terry found 5 drills just lying there.

Here's Leslie making a necklace for Enid.  One of Brian's kids sent a bag of beads and the wire to make a necklace.  She said there would be someone there to make if for Enid!   And so there was.

There's Terry at the dining table. 

More flowers.  In the front of the house was the flower beds. 

Now across the little street, Ian had just gotten this about a week before we got over there!  A 1988 Carrera!  Sweet!  The logs are to hold down the car cover... we didn't get that accessory!  Martin, his son, did take us out for a ride in it while we were over there.  Found some time when there was no rain!

Nice wing!

And very pretty lettering....

The trip did have some interesting times.  Obviously, a ride in the Porsche was great!  Martin was taking his god daughter to her prom.  That'll up her status in school!  As soon as he got back with Terry in the car, the rains came down in buckets!  There had been flash flooding over there many different days.  It was the wettest June and July in recorded history!  It's finally raining over here.  Our brown grass and plants may survive....

It's good to be home.  I'm starting to feel better.  Woke up at 4:30am... alittle later than yesterday.  With Bee today, the laughter should ground me.  I need to be with my peeps! 

More pictures tomorrow.  I haven't shown you York or Lancaster yet!  Stay tuned!
