Subject: England
England has so much to see and it's all so close. Every town is steeped in history. It all depends on what you prefer to see.

Favoutite palace; Blenheim palace, Woodstock, Oxford, where Churchill was born. I was bowled over by the extensive grounds, designed by Capability Brown

Public gardens; Kew gardens. Private Garden; The beautiful Garden at Bodnant, Conwy Valley, Wales. Find the best time for flowering shrubs. The owners live in the house. The huge gardens and ponds spill down a terraced hill, to a lake. Castle; Warwick Castle is the best in my opinion, but crowded. I prefer ruined castles. A boat trip to Greenwich I still love. Cambridge university. Ironbridge, Telford. The cradle of the industrial revolution. A rural riverside village with the first iron bridge built, very pretty and interesting.
