What a difference half a year makes to this rural village and its inhabitants! Artist Steve Crisp, known for his highly-detailed and colourful depictions of the British countryside, captures the contrast between summer and winter in this set of two 500 piece jigsaw puzzles.
Our busy Postman continues his round. He’s been delivering to Andrew Crabtree the greengrocer for many years and always enjoys a brief chat. As the day continues and the temperature rises, it’s nice to find a little bit of shade outside Honeysuckle Cottage.
The village may look the same, but life was very different in the 1960s! Skateboards are now the preferred mode of transportation and the homemade paper sail boat has had to give way to the remote-controlled toy speedboat. At least one thing has remained constant: the river is a great place to go fishing!
Memories of those sunny summer days seem so far away when winter arrives. Shorts, bare legs and water pistols are certainly not an option, that’s for sure, and the cricket match has given way to a full-on snowball fight!
