Summer's taking over the cottage. All of a sudden there are flowers everywhere. I've planted heliotrope by the door and pansies and whenever you walk in or out the smell is heavenly. In this picture the wire is rather unattractive but to me it isn't. It's electricity which Leonard hooked up for me. I can have lamps and on chilly days it makes a warm (fake) fire in my fireplace. So I love it. He's been after me to repaint the cottage (so it will last longer) - I know he'd love to, I might just have him do it. I'm thinking of a different color anyway, and different gingerbread. I think my little cottage just loves to be tweaked.
