A beautiful day for a walk through Shropshire and Worcestershire

On Friday, Dave and I took a gorgeous walk from our current home at Redford Farm in Shropshire, down the Clee Hill to Tenbury Wells and then on to our former home, Brook Farm in Worcestershire. We have been blessed to land in a stunning piece of little-known England, and we absolutely love it. From the windy ridge of Clee Hill to our lovely village of Tenbury, to Sarah’s Heartfelt Garden at Brook Farm, Dave and I had a fabulous day. As usual, I occupied myself by documenting our lovely excursion.

There was a slight breeze. A blow-you-over sort of breeze.
