Anglophile Friday - Favorite Photos of England

Having Sought a Shady Spot
Bolton Abbey, North Yorkshire

 When I think of England, this is what first comes to mind.

  Sheep don't come much cuter than the Scottish Blackface.
I would have loved to have taken them home.

I would have loved to take them home.

I would love to have taken them home.

(Angela, try that sentence on your ESL students!)

Okay, you grammarians, which should it be?

Whichever is correct,
I'm sure that my backyard in Wisconsin needs a few
Scottish Blackface sheep.

And wouldn't Bridger love having a real job,
instead of warming the carpet.


'Clover Blossom'
...and more! Check out all my handcrafted soaps at

This Post is linked to G'Day Saturday

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Not sure about the correct grammar, but I think you would have loved to take them home :-)
My word, Bridger is a lovely looking dog. Why work when he can warm the carpet:-)

You said it right the first time. At least that's how I would have said it! =)

You know I love the sheep. These are especially adorable. =D

Bridger looks so comfy!! I want to use him as a pillow! Although, I'm sure you are right, he'd rather be keeping those sheep in line!! Great pic of the sheep too!

My grandfather raised sheep for a while. We love to hear his stories. It might be in the blood now...

I love the picture of the sheep. I am sure they would have loved to be Wisconsin, it is a beautiful state.

You've been to England? I love the sheep Pic. I've only been there through the Telly :) I think the right way to say it is this one: I would love to have taken them home. Am I correct:)
