We had plenty we could do on Saturday - gardening, cleaning, washing, cooking. But the sun was shining, it was warm and you just have to make the most of the weather don't you? We decided that a day spent in Chipping Campden and Broadway would set us up for the rest of the week. That's our excuse anyway.
I love the mellow stone of the Cotswolds which looks beautiful in the warm sunshine or on a rain-soaked dreary day. The main street has a good selection of shops and houses that open straight out onto the pavement. If you are very naughty like me, you can usually peep into the windows and see the lovely interiors inside. I would also like to know why the Hollyhocks grow so much straighter in the Cotswolds. The ones in the picture above are straight and upright - one downpour of rain and mine will be lying on the garden dejectedly!
We had a leisurely walk around the shops and gazed at the properties we could never afford.
We met this cheeky little fellow too!
And of course - you can't have a nice day out without a nice cup of tea.
