After a week of rain, thunder and hailstones, we finally had our wishes for a sunny day granted. Eddie has been adamant we should go back to Cogges, and I knew Sasha would be very happy to have a ride on the zip wire again. To make the visit slightly more different, I told my guys we should do the ABC of Cogges.
Some letters were very easy to find, like A for apple tree, an abundance of Bs in barns and bunting, C in Cogges, church, cemetery and crosses.
Deer is for deer in the dining-room, E is for freshly laid eggs from Cogges own hens, F is for flowers.
G is for goats, H for hats, I for inside.
I have admired the rows of jams and jellies as well as the vintage jelly moulds on display.
K is for my favourite kitchen, L is for ladder.
M is for three magpies in a row, N is for nursery (though this photo was taken last year), O - for cute ball of fluff aka Orpingtons.
P is for ponies and pigs, Q is for a gnarled quince tree, R is for the river
S is for slides and swing, T is for teddy bear on the window, U is Up the bridge.
Though technically this Victoria is just outside Cogges, on a house on the way, I wanted to include it, plus we, the Varese who were visiting the manor farm.
W is for numerous windows, walls and woolen rugs. X was too tricky to find, so we cheated a bit with eXhibit. Y is a statue of a young farmer. And of course, Z is for our favourite zip wire.
