Country Road

 When I was out in the car the other day I came across a road which I haven't been along before. I have always wondered what was down there so I thought I'd go and have a look.

What a wonderful surprise - it was a wee single-track country road which lead onto a farm.  Just look at how lovely it is with all those wonderful wild flowers!!!

I just had to pull over in the verge to take some pictures.

So if you see a road you have never travelled on - do it because you just don't know what surprises you will get.

Just imagine owning a lovely property down here -  if only I could win the lottery this weekend, sigh, lol.  Mind you, you would need to contend with people like me stopping and taking pictures :))

Sharing today with

Ah! Wild flowers! It's just the right time of the year, isn't it?
Lovely captures of your little road off the beaten track. I especially like the second image with the cow parsley and the wild campions and the little look over the fence at the grazing cows!

Oh what lovely photos! Funny my post kind of deals with the same topic, being brave enough to take an unknown road :-)

Oh how beautiful these pics are. We should always venture down these country lanes. Have a wonderful weekend!

Great minds think alike Ellie. I recently had a long chat with one of my friends about the fact that there are loads of roads and tracks in the area that we've never been down and have no idea what's there or what they lead to. We plan to explore during the school summer holidays.
what a great find!! i love taking back roads...especially ones i've never been down before!
thanks for the beautiful wildflower shots!! what a way to start the day!

these shots are fabulous. I could see having them framed and hung in my kitchen to add some cheer.

Thanks for your visits to my cyclist in Pearls.
