What a joy to hear from all of our children and my own dear Mom on Mother’s Day. They are all so awesome! We love the opportunity to skype and Viber and email and feel love, support, and encouragement instantly! A sweet blessing!
After our church meetings and “Munch and Mingle” and a few visits, we decided to go back to Bisley, a village we passed by when we missed a turn coming home earlier this week. It is only about ten minutes away, on the top of a huge hill east of Stroud. It is ancient, from the Roman and Saxon times, and quaint, nestled in a little area below the top plain of hill. We took the time to get out of the car and explore and it was so lovely! We loved the wisteria and clematis and the newish leaves and the taste of a sweet ancient Cotswold village!
The bell-ringers and a young mother who lived near the church all urged us to see the wells at the bottom of the hill. They were built over 150 years ago for the village water supply. At the same time, a tradition started of decorating the wells every Ascension Day, which is this Thursday. Since we will be busy that day, I’ve added a a few vintage photos of that!
