Spring in England

A spring day in Goathland, aka Aidensfield.

Spring in England is amazing.  Hi, I'm Marilyn Leach and the weather in springtime England is diverse.  There's clouds and sun, daffodils popping out, and rain.  You'll find green everywhere and blooming magnolia trees along with amazing bird song.  I've had the remarkable pleasure of visiting all these sights.  Thanks to my friend, Lillie, for the pix.  I enjoy the spring season on the grand isle.

Hi, I'm Marilyn Leach and I'd love to show you some beautiful pictures of England. Winter there is a beautiful season to visit.  The weather can be mild and clear, brisk and blustery, or damp with bone-chilling cold.  Some areas often see snowfall while white is a rare sight in other places.  But, it is an island.  So, dress according to the forcast and enjoy the beauty.

South Lake in Earley, Reading, Berkshire in winter is a lovely place to stroll.

The west coast can be rough during extreme storms that are generally few in number.

Hello, I'm Marilyn Leach and I'd like to welcome you to view some English villages that are much like the village I've created in my Berdie Elliott mystery series.  Theses scenes are in Somerset, in the south of England.  Who knows, there could be an unknown miscreant about.

It's been about 20 years since I traveled England. Surely brought back amazing feelings, smells, memories.

Leslie Sartor said she really liked the idea of overhearing someone's conversation, then writing a story about it. How fun.
