Oh my goodness - this cottage is even more charming than the one in France. I don't see a garage, but I do see a gargoyle.

Can't wait to see that wisteria in bloom. You're soooo lucky to have found this beautiful home.

I have wisteria in the BACK of my house - so it won't help you find my house as you and Terri drive around CT. For the first few years we were in CT, I thought it was a weed, and I kept trying to pull it out - even cut it level with the ground. Then I started grad school, and between that and taxi-ing kids around town, I had no more time for gardening. The weed bloomed! Then DH made a trellis, and now it frames the kitchen windows. Years ago, birds nested in it - that ended the year DD & family were in the house with a cat. Birds have long memories.

The cork was already installed, all we did was give it a couple of fresh coats of clear, matt varnish and I have to say, it's ideal - warm and soft on my barefoot (I always hop around in one shoe, right foot bare for the foot pedal!) and easy to clean. I got one of those swiffy duster on a stick things, like at the hairdressers, a friend said and a quick flick round with that picks up all the threads and scraps. :-D

On site tours by appointment, all welcome, Pimms served in the garden afterwards. ;) Oh, don't know if you have Pimms in the States, it's a classic English summer drink, a kind of punch with fruit in it, and it's deceptively strong so we'll all be giggly in no time! :mrgreen: )
So, for those of us in the states....can you post a recipe for Pimms, please?

The garage is out of shot - well spotted! I just bought the gargoyle the other day, the children call him Gaston in honour of our time in France. The back garden is a WIP Joyce, I'll show it when I've whipped it into a bit more shape. :mrgreen: Oh OK one pic then...

Mom says we'll keep Mr. Rooster and bring him over to you personally! LOL Sounds good to me. Of course, it's gonna be a while, since I'm just starting a new job, but what the heck.

Well, I think you're "whipping" it into shape very nicely already!! Besides, if it's as hot there as it is here, you don't need to be outside working too much -- but I think it's beautiful!! :mrgreen:
