Time to unFirle

What could be better on a blustery August Bank Holiday than a good old blow as Granny would say, " Do you know Sarah, it was so windy up there it nearly blew me eyebrows off!" ( Said in a buttery west country burr.)

Firle beacon - sea on one side, South Downs on the other. A high swirling ridge where an English carpet rolls  out below us. A glorious carpet, all green and golden and studded with yellow and purple. Fields demarked by their hedges embroidered with late summer flowers.... and at the bottom? 
The prettiest little village resplendent with pub, post office, buckets of flowers and home grown produce.

Happy Bank Holiday weekend


  1. Lovely picture postcard, enjoy your holiday.

  2. so lovely! oh, you make me jealous ;) we are having a hurricane, here on the east coast of the US...definitely blowing hard enough to take your eyebrows off! ha! LOVE that saying :)

  3. What an amazing spot and the perfect way to spend the bank holiday I agree. It wouldn't be the end of August bank holiday without being blowy though would it!

  4. That's just what I need today.

    Happy bank holiday weekend too.
