Cerne Abbas

We went to visit an elderly aunt today, who lives in Dorset. We took this opportunity to also visit another Dorset village nearby, Cerne Abbas.

Before we drove into the village, we stopped at The Giant, an outline of a figure carved out of the chalky hillside. Nobody really knows how old he is, but there are many stories about his origin.

The village of Cerne Abbas is a small, pretty village, normally very busy with tourists this time of year.
But it was very quiet today, with only a few people walking about, possibly due to the fact that the weather has changed and we were expecting to have a wet day. The rain held of and I could take a few photographs.

The weather has changed now, we have been having some rain on and of for a couple of weeks now and at last the garden has come back to life again.


  1. Radka, I just love the "tours" you take us on in those lovely English villages. Cerne Abbas is delightful! And your garden is looking lovely. Sadly ours is on the way out as summer will be coming to an end soon, but my hydrangeas are still lovely!



  2. Lovely pics. Place looks great.

  3. What beautiful flowers - I love the soft mauves and pinks. You certainly have attractive villages in your part of the world. Thanks for sharing them. Happy stitching!

  4. Thank you again Radka for sharing your world. There are some lovely buildings/villages/scenery in your photos. I so enjoy the 'tours'. Loved the day at the beach. The flowers are beautiful too. Hydrangeas are one of my favourites, mother had lots of them, and they grew well. Such a pretty rose too, I have one almost the same.
