Living a stone's throw from some of the most scenic stretches of The Grand Union Canal, and curious about the history, culture and lifestyle surrounding the cut, it's communities and it's history ; it's no surprise I'm often found simply gongoozling by a lock, sketching from a bridge or sitting on a bank reading books like Rolt's "Narrow Boat" or Darlington's "Narrow Dog To Carcassonne".
I can't help but be drawn to the calming water, the thriving wildlife, the willow trees draped across the water, the painted narrowboats decorated with colourful plant pots, the smell of coal burning fires, the lock keepers cottages and the historic canalside inns.
Today however with the weather not so good this morning, I revisited a 500 piece jigsaw puzzle I did nearly a year ago, called "The Lock Keeper's Cottage" which reminds me a little of Dudswell and Lock No.47.

Just missed the sunset from Brush Hill tonight, by about 20 seconds!
Still, a pretty cool view from the trig point.

Coombe Hill, Buckinghamshire, England 2018. .

Part of the National Trust, Coombe Hill overlooks the beautiful Chilterns. I’ve travelled near and far, but sometimes all you need is your own back yard. I never really appreciated growing up here in the countryside until I returned from living overseas. Now it’s my haven to escape London’s rat race. .

So many ripe, red, juicy tomatoes to pick from our grow tunnel, I think we will have enough for tomato salads and pasta sauces for months to come.

We loads and loads of different sized tomatoes at different stages of ripening all of which we grew ourselves and will end up on our plates to eat.

I'm also hoping to use the seeds from some of the tomatoes to propagate new plants next spring rather than buy them all over again.

We are excited to announce that a month today, Musette Cafe will be opening at ashmei HQ in Church Farm.
Keep your eyes peeled for more info about whats to come.

Whilst out dog walking with Pepper, Alessandro took the chance to ride his bike along the woodland trails and stopped off along the way to explore a few old but wonderful buildings.

I thought the dumped bicycle on the grass under the willow tree reminded me of classic kids adventure film "The Goonies" or more recently "Stranger Things".

England is still so incredibly parched following our early summer heatwave. This field of wheat was harvested weeks ago and the ground is way too cracked and dry for the farmer to do anything of any value to it just yet. That said, it's been fabulous for hiking - what no puddles?? 😃 #hikers #hikefest2018 #chilterns #walkthechilterns #arid #dryasabone #heatwave2018 #dusttodust #whatnowheat #walkingboots #chilternhills #wiggington #summer2018 #hikingadventures #hikeitbaby #dacorumandtring

Now that the sun has been replaced by grey skies and rain, is anyone else pining for autumn? A season for comforting pies and puddings, bracing walks and making the most of the harvest, be that from the farm and fields or from the hedgerows. It's the season too for the best food festivals and there's a rather special one at @peterleymanorfarm, Feast on the Farm, in which we will be holding some special talks. More details of those coming soon! #chilternhills #thechilterns #chilterns #flatlay #harvest #foraging #wildfood #flashesofdelight

Intransigence - about to take a sharp left. Sometimes I think Maisie is like a Scalextric car - stuck on the same track.... There is no way she will budge more than a few steps beyond the signpost in any other direction. #greyhound #blackdog #greyhoundsofinstagram #retiredgreyhoundtrust #ridgeway #chilternhills #thechilterns #enlightapp

#ThirstyThursday and a #Throwback all in one from @hartwellhouse! 🍸 we would love to see some sunshine this weekend so we can be back enjoying cocktails in the sun again! ☀️ #visitbucks

This place reminds our village in Afghanistan and many memories. It was my routine to herd sheeps to the sides of Agam river. I supposed to do my homework and meanwhile keep an eye on sheeps and goats.
Life goes on... #ChilternHills #Nature #Sheeps #Greenery
