English cottages are so appealing to me. From the cross gabled roof that has a steep pitch to the small cozy interior with lots of nooks and crannies, I find them whimsical and charming, as well as, romantic and picturesque! And if you have an English cottage, then in my opinion, an English garden must accompany it!
My dream is to live in an English cottage someday. I could get lost in thought for hours making plans for decorating my little home.
My dreams continue into the yard, as I wander through my gardens of foxglove, climbing roses, wisteria, delphiniums, daisies, honeysuckle and lavender.
I suppose that is why I adore collecting prints of English cottages with wonderful gardens. Since I don't really have the chance to actually live in one now, the wonderfully framed pictures can help me conjure up thoughts of roaming through an informal, English garden that has the feel of charm and grace, and looks like Mother Nature haphazardly placed the plants and flowers. I envision a slow-paced simple life, enjoying the every day beauty and blessings that God has place around me.
Well, off to bed I go, with hopes of visions of sipping tea by a lace covered window, peering out at the sheep in the English countryside.
What will you be dreaming of? Whatever it is, I hope it is something that makes you happy, cozy, and warm inside.
