CHESTER: STOPPING TO SMELL THE ROSES

July 23, 2015

Appreciating and savouring every experience in England became a priority as soon as we made the decision to move to Berlin. I always like to recognise and enjoy the little things but when you know that you wont be seeing something again for a while your senses seem heightened and you start to notice things that you had never even seen before. It is often the micro-pleasures that bring a smile to our faces and make the bigger picture what it is. England is such a beautiful country, I am so glad that my family home is here and I will be back and forth all of the time.

These photographs were taken where my Mum lives in Chester by the River Dee. I love the weeping willow trees that surround the bank. It might sound corny but they remind me of the Jolly Holiday scene in Mary Poppins. Do you remember it? The picture here might jog your memory.

In the words of ‘David After Dentist’, I sometimes find myself asking “Is this real life?”

    It is indeed dreamy there, I can see why you love it. Berlin is beautiful in its own, different way and I hope you’ll love it here too. Good luck with your move and settling in!

    Chester is such a beautiful place. Whenever I think of Chester, the word ‘quaint’ immediately springs to mind. The photographs you’ve captured are beautiful as well, they definitely do the wild flowers of Chester justice! It’s lovely that you’re able to come home from Berlin and appreciate all those simple pleasures in life. It’s sad to think that whilst we live here in England, we are often blind to the beauty that surrounds us.
    I hope you had a lovely visit!
