A out-of-season photo


A picture of my house for Diane in Wyoming - the wisteria is fabulous in May if we don't get a late frost when it's in bud. And yes, there are brambles growing through the shrub in the foreground. We don't keep a tidy garden.

You may have seen this before, but Diane is a relatively new friend so she hasn't.

The two tall chimneys on the right (they are about 6 feet tall) are Victorian, but the joined-together ones to the left of the photo are Tudor.

Fabulous! You're one of those lions with the artfully arranged rocks and grasses;)

Thanks for the picture of your house. No, I haven't seen it and it's beautiful. Wonderful chimneys and color of the brick. Thanks again.

It's lovely Z.

Artfully disarranged if you don't mind, E!

All very old-fashioned and scruffy - which rather describes us, come to think of it.

What a beautiful home! So very welcoming and inviting.
The wisteria is stunning. How often does it need whacking er pruning?

If you're tall, you have to duck under the doorframes, that all right?

The wisteria should be pruned twice a year, once after it's flowered (which I usually do or else it's a bit scruffy) and again in the autumn, which I only do around the porch so we can get in the front door. Not that we use the front door much, this is Norfolk ('n' good, of course). When the tiles were replaced the wisteria was cut to the ground, but it all grew back.

That's an impressive place, I have to say.

I'm quite the jealous, now. :-)

It's just a big old cottage, but we like it too.
