  1. Thanks! I took this photo on a walk near Burford, going east near the River Windrush, in May 2006 the year we got almost constant rain for our 2 1/2 weeks in the Cotswolds. This hike started in Burford and then went through Freshford about 1/2 mile from Burford, the village where we have rented a cottage for 2 1/2 weeks this June.

    From there we walked across the muddiest field I have ever experienced. Our boots probably still have some of that mud embedded in them. But then the day brightened and the rest of the walk was beautiful and non-muddy.

    Fingers crossed for a sunny and dry June in the Cotswolds this year (but I am taking lots of rain gear just in case)!!

  2. heehee, I think I’ve walked across the same field as you :) I used to live in the Cotswolds (not far from Burford) before moving to France, and they certainly do have some of the muddiest mud there is!

  3. I agree – England has mud like you have never seen before! And when you are out on the trails, it is not just wet dirt – you have all elements left by cows, sheep and other animals combined with the dirt. I like to think about that when scraping off my boots.

    What a great blog Veronica – I am hungry just looking at the beautiful header photo!
