The Cotswolds consist of picturesque buildings, villages and  beautiful countryside, northwest of London.  The area personifies the ideal classic English country life. Villages such as Bourton-On-The-Water and Lower Slaughter (bottom) illustrate the point.  In the Spring, the Rape Seed (below) and the Wisteria (below, left) are in full blossom!  Does it make you want to visit?
