sunny weather

As the weather has been so beautiful, on Sunday afternoon we decided to go for a bike ride.My hubby and son wanted to cycle to Oxford. I did not.Oxford is 14 miles away, that's a 28 mile round trip! I knew my bottom and legs would not make it!I thought it would be nice to cycle to this little spot,it's the river Windrush and it's about 5 minutes ride away from our house, we went the long way which took 25 mins.
It's so quiet and beautiful in this little spot.You can just hear the water babbling under the bridge .
This is the old converted mill next to the river
This was a very puzzling scene that we passed on the way to the river.A group of horses all facing one horse who had a foal lying next to her on the ground (out of shot)The foal wasn't moving, I was worried it had died but hubby reckons it was just asleep, what do you think ?

Back home and it's time for a spot of gardening.It's a jungle out there!

See what I mean!

In other news I've added some pretty vintage brooches to the

Hope you've all had a lovely Bank holiday weekend!
