Stumbling towards ecstasy at Hardwick Hall

Hardwick Hall 
More Glass than Wall
Side entrance to my neighbour's house.
Click to see her initials on the balustrade? 
Side view of front entrance, her horse 
dismounting platform in the foreground.
View from her front entrance, 
looking towards my cottage 
just beyond the ponds.
Much stumbling towards ecstasy has,
and does go on here!

All will be revealed!

Thank you for your lovely comments Rebecca, always gratefully received!

My town is Chesterfield about sixty miles south of York, I think you told me you visited York? My cottage is close by the M1 motorway, junction 29. I've been told you can see my campervan, my love and Dougal on Google Earth!

Oh, my! This is transporting, this country side and where you live.
This is so gorgeous and your neighbor definitely has a very distinctive estate. But, there you are in your cottage and you are all in the same neighborhood.

Well Sue my dear, this is a fine broad prospect. I am waiting for Mr. Rochester to come galloping round the corner at any moment as he makes his way back to Thornfield Hall. Really lovely digs here. Thank you so much for sharing this bit of English manor countryside.

Noelle

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

Recuerda mi Corazon

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …
