... and I came across this field of tulips, roburst with colors! This reminded me of French impressionist art.

This is the first English Cottage I visited. when I arrived here, I thought I was seeing a postcard. This is really a charming picturesque English cottage.
East Lambrook Manor, regarded by many as the 'the home of English cottage gardening' the garden was created by Margery Fish Between 1940 - 1969. A plantswoman, writer and journalist. Mrs Fish became one of the most influential gardeners of the 20th century.
Her work led to a revival of interest in many old English cottage garden plants and the saving from extinction of many native plants. The informally planted garden at East Lambrook is consideres as one of the finest examples of English cottage gardening.
Do you care to join me for a cup of sweet cream tea and scone? How about take a saunter at the garden? Or read a book underneath a tree in the Garden? We can bake a cake or biscuits? Or just dreaming by the window looking out the garden? or take out your easel and watercolor and brushes and paper and do a painting that you have been wanting to do for years? .....
I know this is a commercial about Powers of Word ... wishing it was real.
"It's a beautiful day and I can't see it."
Many of us have so many and yet we don't take a moment to realize it?
"Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Love your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams." ~ Ashley Smith ~
This pagoda-style structure was built in 1885 by a Chinese contractor named Leong Choon Chong, and was originally used as a covered water tank to store potable water for the immediate vicinity. Before it became known as the leanging Tower, it was called Clock Tower. Today, it stands as an architectural oddity that continues to attract visitors to Teluk Intan (formerly known as Teluk Anson).
The clock was made by J.W. Benson, Ludgatehill, London. The British administration regarded the tower as the town time-keeper because of the huge clock. The clock is still working today!
