So this is the dream: a little country house in the countryside somewhere outside of Algiers or in Carmarthenshire, Wales.
If that little country house happened to be in Algeria then add a couple of sheep, a few chickens, some fruit trees like fig, apricot, lemon etc, maybe some vines and I'd be a very happy bunny; I really am a country gal at heart. :)
We went for a late afternoon drive at the weekend, that beautiful part of the day when the sky is a rich blue and the sunlight falls on the trees and fields in such a way as to intensify the greenness.
We drove past green valleys, apricot groves, fields of grape vines...
