In London, everyone smoked. I'd be walking behind someone and a blaze of cigarette would swirl through the air, hitting me right smack in the face. It wasn't a pleasant feeling whatsoever, and I would much rather see the sky than a cloud of smug. Just take a look at the pictures below and tell me it doesn't look beautiful?
Going along with the theme of the English Countryside, I thought I'd provide you with several pictures of my favorite English musician's homes. Two of my favorites are the beautiful Plumpton Place, Jimmy Page's former home, and the lush Friar Park, former home of George Harrison. Plumpton Place is my favorite of the two simply because of how subtle its beauty is, whereas Friar Park is gigantic and is almost a little overwhelming. Just take a look for yourself. First is Friar Park.
Although some/most of these images are blurry, I hope you could understand and appreciate the beauty of England and its wonderful musicians' homes. So below I've provided some songs that remind me of a calm summer place, preferably Friar Park or Plumpton Place.
