Please, please read this in the Journal tab so the deviations display correctly, they look badly collated on my profile page!
I've been meaning to write this journal for... probably about a year
As I've travelled the paths of dA I've seen things that remind me of my childhood home and have collected them for the beautiful memories and would now like to share them.
I was born in the town (now a large town I believe) of High Wycombe in Bucks (Buckinghamshire) in England in 1956. When I was 11 we moved to the countryside and I spent 4 idyllic years (when I wasn't at school) wandering the farmland and woods surrounding our family home. These years were very, very precious to me and I will cherish the English countryside inside my head for the rest of my life.
When I was 15 we got on a cruise ship and sailed away to Australia to live and I have never returned to the UK. Well, not yet anyway.
Thanks to everyone who has posted pictures that have kept these memories so fresh for me. Even though quite a few of these deviations were not taken in the UK, they were familiar sights to me when I lived there.
I remember this one - the actual place, not just one like it.
I won't talk about each picture, but mostly they are the sights of nature that I loved so much for my final 4 years in the UK. I could hear a donkey bray each morning from my bedroom and pick fresh hazelnuts from the tree just a few feet away. But anyway, if you have any questions about the memories of any specific deviation, just ask. And now I'll be quiet and share the beauty.Animals Trees Flowers & Fruit

And even now I've had to leave some out, but I think I'd better stop
Love to you all
