Hi Koralee,
Such beautiful surroundings for your darling daughter. I would be thrilled to wake up to that scenery every morning, as I'm sure she is!
Thanks for sharing!

BEAR's Mom said...

She is as talented with a camera as her mama...
Maybe she should start a blog to keep us all updated :)
He is a handsome dude, that Mr. Donkey...
she made a new friend...
Thanks for sharing your treasures with us sweetie...
HUGS to you...and Molly

Ooh Koralee these are beautiful photos I hope your daughter is settling in - is she enjoying being over here? I too boarded for sixth form at a college in North Yorkshire (very Hogwarts!) I had a fabulous time with some of the happiest memories although it's almost 20 years ago now! Kisses Kitty xxx

...wow she is as good behind the lens (as her mama) as she is beautiful in every image of her!...love the donkey...& the architecture...but really the drain spout with the creeping jenny (?)...adorable...should be a card....and I hope it still lets the water drain from the top of the queens castle!

Ashley said...

Becky said...

I think donkeys are just the cutest!!! Love them!
What a breathtaking environment for a college, like a movie!
Did your daughter take these pictures??? They are great!!! She's a first class photographer! Hope she has the greatest time in school!

I would recognize my mother's homeland almost anywhere! What a fabulous editorial eye she has, really nice. Now can we talk about that donkey? Possibly the cutest I have ever seen. Those hairy ears and squinty eyes just melted my heart. I am quite smitten with the last image - seems full of excitment.

Glenys said...

I like the donkey! Nice pics.

Randi Troxell said...

Not Just a Waitress said...

Wow!! The (cozy, sweater-wearing) apple doesn't fall far from the tree!! :)
Beautiful images!!
I know you must miss her very much, but it must help to be able to share each others gifts of photography. :)
BLESSSINGS!! :) :) :)

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Oh my, no wonder my girls dream to study in England one day, I specially {heart} that weed that grew out from that pipe, your daughter Molly has artist eyes like mom!

pollydove said...

OH.MY.GOODNESS! Molly really does have an incredible eye for photography, just like her mama! What a lovely place to attend college! Wow. And I am going to assume that adorable photo of the girls in the window is of Molly and/or her roomates? SOOOOOO cutie!!! :)

(And what a darling donkey!)

Terra said...

Mr. Donkey is Mr. Personality Plus, from the photo. Your daughter must be enjoying herself at school there. I studied abroad one year myself, in Istanbul, Turkey, and it was a great experience.

Dawn said...

ENGLAND! I recognized the scenery when I saw the "castle" of course:) (My mother-in-law lived there and goes back twice a year...beautiful!)
I hope Molly is doing well!

Oh I would like that donkey in my yard!!!! I never thought they were THAT cute:)

Vern said...

What a wonderful place to study and experience the country. Reminds me of our visits to England...I loved it and I'm sure Molly is having the time of her life!
Wouldn't we all "hear" better with ears like Mr. Donkey??

bellaboo said...

I was wondering how your sweet Molly was doing.
Love the images she has taken...looks like a beautiful place to study. :o)

I'm feeling a twinge of jealousy here... in a good way. It seems as if your daughter is settling in well.. I love those ears... I think he needs a scratch!

Beautiful England! Your sweet Molly captured it perfectly pretty.

Brenda Kula said...

I know this sounds strange, but I do not want to hear any better than I already do. The "sounds" in this world make me hermit-like as it is. My neighbor says: Brenda could hear a mouse dropping on a cotton pad.

Marilyn said...

Lovely to see pictures from your daughter. I bet you were thrilled. It is a beautiful day here today. I hope it is beautiful there too.

The Garden Bell said...

Just look at all the sweet goodness, I've been missing. That apple sweater is just aDORable. I'll have to have a closer look and figure it out.

Looks like someone is having a great time in the English Countryside.

So, glad, but sad to be back home. Now, I can get back to normal. I've missed my blogging.

Off to see what else I've been missing,
Kate

It's me said...

A catchup on your blog is always such a tonic Koralee. I see your daughter has your creative eye for composition and photography. The fortune cookies are amazing - and I'm sure went down a treat. And the new blog header is so sweet! xx

mariacc2 said...

Hi Koralee!
I just read what Indie.Tea wrote {Darjeeling Dreams}
...so true ♥

I know your heart is right there with Molly ~ it's a wonderful 'vicarious' year in England for you, Koralee~
When my sister was in China {she adopted her dear sweet Marcy there} I don't think I slept a wink during her long flights back and forth. She and her husband, Barry, emailed me daily with news and photos. I realized that these emails were a diary, a journal of their weeks there. I started a scrapbook of their photos and emails. It was a welcome home gift and still brings tears each time I see it.

Enjoy every photo, every email, all the love coming to you from across the "pond." She is such a lucky girl ~
{hugs and love to you}
*Maria
ps. the retirement party was wonderful ~ thank you for your kind wishes, Koralee ♥

Maria said...

Hi Koralee... The above comment was from me! Google must have kept my old yahoo account {I use for youtube} still logged in!

*Ingrid* said...

What a beautiful place where Molly is for school.....sweet donkey too....

NENSA MOON said...

Privet and Holly said...

Koralee, what an amazing
experience for your girl!
I would have been in absolute
nirvana to go to an English
college ~ I've always adored
everything British, even at
your daughter's age!! Wonderful

Wonderland said...

My litlle girl is just 5 but I'm allready scared about how much I'm going to miss her when she'll decide to go away....so silly, I know.
These photo are beautiful, and I'm sure she is very happy to be there.
A big hug!
love,
Darija

Sewn With Grace said...

That donkey is so sweet. Our neighbor used to have a donkey named Sugar Plum and she would make donkey noises all the time. I miss seeing her.

My Paul is from England - spent most of his life in Derby and Oxford. I am going to show him these pics - he will appreciate them as much as I do. We hope to get back next spring...I just love England and Ireland.

Seems your daughter is settling in nicely...adore that last pic, especially : ) Feels like a (modern day) Jane Austin scene...lovely!
