Thinking of the U.K. Today

Sorry this post is arriving so late, but my husband and I spent the evening watching the news about the U.K. leaving the EU (the “brexit”). Pretty historic. I hope this all works out for them and the rest of Europe. Since England was on my mind, I decided to pull out some photos of the home of Anne Hathaway, William Shakespeare’s wife.

Anne Hathaway House was built in 15th and 17th centuries and still looks amazing.

I was very curious about the thatched roof, so took this close-up.

Such lovely climbing roses against the walls.

Those windows! We really loved visiting this place and the rest of Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Great weekend, everyone!

    Thought that this post needed a comment. The Anne Hathaway house looks gorgeous; my parents honeymooned in England in the 80s and this was one of the places they visited. BTW, haven’t see you around my blog lately…is everything OK? Check in…

    • It really is gorgeous. What a lovely place to honeymoon!
      I’ve been having back problems, so haven’t been able to visit blogs or comment until lately. Thanks for stopping by!

    Great photos! Happy weekend! Well, we all heard about Brexit, but I think it’s not so hopeless yet, who knows maybe situation can change!

    What a beautiful house. I love these roofs. Thanks for sharing. I’d love to visit. We’re actually not that far away from it. I might even be in the Uk in July,
