Always, at this time of year, I think of our visit to friends in Herefordshire, England, friends who were gracious enough to invite us to stay with them in their home. What fun that was! I'm posting a few photos of the beautiful countryside in The Golden Valley where they live.
To an outsider like me, the Hereford- shire country- side is the most enchanting place with its hedgerows lined with daffodils, the ever-present sheep, and its narrow, winding roads.
True, it would probably take me a long time to get used to driving on those roads, and I'd always want to be stopping to view the scenery. I don't think that would work out too well, for you never know when another car - or a huge piece of farm equipment will come zipping around the curve - and then one of you has to figure out where to go to get out of the way of the other. Being tourists, we thought that deferring to the natives might be a good idea. :-)
I just placed an order for a few natural soap colorants and can't wait to use them! In the kitchen, I have my spinach-infused olive oil ready to use for today's soap. I'll post more soap pics later. Today, I hope you'll enjoy The Golden Valley. It will take your mind off the snowbanks and slippery winter roads.
