My youngest brother organised this one – the other treats will follow next time.

  1. Evelyn thanks so much for doing this for me. Both parts are interesting and I hope your readers enjoy them too. Everywhere I go I take a camera if I am able and snap away at things which interest me. I’ve seen some wonderful places and have posted about them on my blog as well, so if you hunt around it you will find some other interesting posts I hope, with photos. I am mad about history, so most have a historical element, though not all. I love gardens so there are several about gardens and villages too. I am not just a crime writer as you can see. Have a wonderful week, and thanks once more for being so kind and re-blogging. Much appreciated. 🙂

  2. Thank you Jane. Will do, when I have time. I used to do the sme,a bit. My health not good now so cannot wlk much. It is only in recemt years my interest in history has exploded into reading more about it. Seeing mor in t.v.shows, but I always was a but of a history person.
    Have just posted my latest blog. Not about history, more about our people ruining the planet, with new poem. The sun is shining, gav a great day.
    Evelyn
