It looks lovely, I think they call this 'the golden hour' ?

Golden hour, yep.
Tall things in pots.........A golden bamboo, which doesn't like the wind, so can't plant it. A clem Pepertius, which I should really plant and one of those bamboo like, green, prehistoric plants I can't remember the name of!!

It's fantastic. Comes with hubby's job. No garden when we arrived........I got carried away. It's so peaceful here, a mile from a road and no neighbours....good for hubby's drumming and band practise and great for the 3 dogs.

How old is the cottage lulu? Is it steeped in history?

No one really knows Karen. It's called Thatched Cottage but isn't and builders said didn't look like it used to bee. i reckon it's about 250+ years old and the cottage plus the big house used to be part of a larger estate called Saddlewood Manor. It's on google. The manor is haunted!!

What a pity you can't find out about the cottage. It surely must have been thatched at some time if it's called Thatched Cottage! I'll go take a look at the manor....

hmm...seems that this 'dream home' is not a happy home! Hope the new owners will be happy there! What a beautiful place though eh....do you think that people who live in these places realise just how blessed they are? ;)

What a lovely place you live in Lulu. I like what you've done with the garden so far. Large gardens just eat plants don't you find?

I would get the old manor house de ghosted for a start!
Yes poppyL, eats breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner, with a little light snacking inbetween!
