Subject: BS: The Essence of England
I watched a programme yesterday about Grayson Perry, a potter and artist. He was creating two huge pots and painting them with small scenes which epitomise England. He's a fascinating man and cross-dresses, calling himself Claire when in character.
He asked folk all over England to submit photos of things they felt evoked England, and the results were interesting.

As I was cooking dinner this evening, our nearby village church started their bell-ringing practice, so lovely to hear.

If you had to choose just three things which, to you, epitomise your country (not just England) what would they be?
Hard to stick to only three, but mine would be:-

Church bells
Morris dancing
bluebells in a beech wood
