{scrapbook: a weekend in the country}

{a few photographs of our weekends away}

. . . while evenings in the city may be spent in heels and cocktail dresses, weekends away in the country are laid-back in a quilted Barbour and a pair of wellies, and after the apple orchards and pumpkin patches, the golden fields of wheat and rustling yellow leaves, a perfect afternoon for an autumn picnic for two . . .

{p.s.} and to p, thank you for making every moment feel like a dream, and for taking the most beautiful photographs

This post was enough to make this city boy yearn for a drop top, open road and a field at the end of it. Champagne obligatory, of course.
