All good, Philine, but my eyes are especially drawn to the stained glass.
Philine: Like my eyes. Many thanks, Ray!
The stained glass is gorgeous!

J'adore les vitraux.

It is a very pleasant window.
Philine: Indeed, Chad! I looked for a poem by Betjeman that would be fitting, but I didn't found anyone. Are you still on the European continent?
Vraiment trop mignonne cette chapelle ..C'est vrai que le vitrail est très original
Philine: Je l'aime aussi. Merci beaucoup, Claudine!

Delightful isn't it
Philine: Indeed. I looked for a poem by Betjeman that would be fitting, but I didn't found any poem about the beauty of nature. Many thanks, Chris!

It is beautiful. I especially like you view over the gate and then the fine wooden doors.
Philine: Yes, the view is wonderful, the pic is not the best one. Many thanks, Alan!
Wonderful place
Philine: Yes, it is, and so quiet and peaceful , merry old England is still here. Many thanks, Bill!
It is a lovely, modern-seeming set of windows. Lovely!
Philine: I agree with you, Mary! Many thanks!
I love visiting small country churches like this one.
Philine: I am sure you would love this church. How many small country churches have you already photographed! Many thanks, Brian!
