Far north

My dear, sweet brother moved to England a year ago this month, to be closer to his wife's family. They live outside of London but during their recent holiday weekend they took a trip up to the far north of England to hike and visit Roman ruins like Hadrian's wall. I thought I'd share some of their pictures with you here because I was swooning when I saw them. There is something about the light, the sky and fields there that is just well... so "British", and so obviously far north. He told me that the days are already much shorter there now, and on their trip they were all wearing jackets and sweaters.
While I'm still holding onto summer, I can't help but get a little tingle of excitement seeing these photos and thinking of cooler, crisper days ahead.

These images are just lovely. . . the black-faced sheep are so comical. I know what you mean about the season changing to Fall. I get chills right now just thinking about it. I can't wait to put pumpkins on the porch and pull out my favorite wool sweater. I love everything about it.
