An Enchanting Cottage

Hello, I hope you are enjoying a beautiful, sunny, Autumn day.

While on vacation this summer we went for a walk past the most enchanting little cottage I have ever seen in North America.

 I love the thatched roof, it is so quaint and so uncommon here in North America  The window boxes are all done so nicely.  I love the trailing plant in those.

Isn't the stonework gorgeous?  Another very unusual building material here in this area.
Can you see the little wagon on the porch there?  So cute.
  Unfortunately, I only had my telephoto lens with me that day, so the photos are all very close-up and I wasn't able to get the whole cottage into one photo.  Aren't the gardens surrounding it just as sweet as the house itself?  Whoever lives there must feel like they are living in a fairy tale, because enchantment is what fairy tales are composed of, isn't it?

Here's wishing you all a beautiful, sunny weekend!

I've never seen anything like that in the USA. Love how they hung a flag out there, otherwise you'd think you were somewhere else! lol You're a great photographer.

I would love to live in a house like that, my dream... I laughed at your comment, I know what you mean. I have never told a single friend about my blog! I just know I will open my big mouth about something in their home and hurt their feelings. My family has not known long about it. Thanks also for being so sweet.
