All the photos in this post have been taken around the green area. I will try to do a follow up post on other areas around the village soon.
I drive past the green almost every day. It's the heart of the village if you like, and is such a beautiful spot, at all times of the year.
But in spring the colour just bursts out, with daffodils sprouting up at the base of all the trees, it looks so pretty.
It just has so much about it, so much history, so much character.
It's quite a large green. Used for various things throughout the year. A children's fair at the beginning of the summer, a circus later on in the summer time, the remembrance service in November and home to a beautiful Christmas tree in December.
And not to mention the pond. Always filled with many ducks who call it home, and from time to time a beautiful swan.
Each of the buildings surrounding the green have their own purpose.
Their own story.
I mean honestly, why would you not want to visit this Library and Post Office?
I'm not a religious person but even the church sits so nicely in the centre of the village.
And this house looks just beautiful once all the flower is out on the wisteria. I'll try to show you a photo once it has bloomed.
The pub is pretty sweet too.
I've always wanted to live in a village. There is just something about them.
So quaint, and picturesque.
So this is the village green in Spring. I'll post again in Summer, and if I can Autumn and Winter.
