I suppose we'll have to accept it; Summer is pretty much over. We'll soon have to move back indoors to our Winter quarters; my shorts are already packed away in the drawer marked 'Summer clothes'.
There is no electricity in the 'tower', so, unless we installed a very small wood burner, it could get quite cold in there before too long.
The interior of the 'tower' is 3.60 metres square. It's reasonably sparse with just a large bed with 6 copious drawers underneath (not Queen Victoria's), a cupboard, and 2 bedside tables. In the height of Summer it also often contains children's toys, damp swimming gear, and various dogs.
When we built the 'tower' back in 2011, I envisaged it exactly like the photo above. A peaceful Summer haven, covered in creepers.... We're getting there.
It looks like a small house from a legend.ReplyDelete
It's a pity it's not in the middle of a forest.Delete
This place is better, you don't want little red hood and her grandmother taking over that nice tower.Delete
A beautiful structure. It's design exudes love.ReplyDelete
Such a lovely retreat - to sleep there on a hot summers night with the doors wide open - bliss.ReplyDelete
Looks like it's been there forever...we are heading into summer over here...Yay.ReplyDelete
It is beautiful, but the possibility of many spiders would put me off sleeping in there! Do the dogs stay in there with you overnight too?ReplyDelete
No, but the cat does. And there are no spiders (not many anyway)!Delete
Winter draws on.
Do you leave the furniture in there over winter?ReplyDelete
Yes everything stays there. We open the doors and window whenever it's sunny so it stays very airy.Delete
Love! I would be drawn to it immediately. It must be a magical place for the grands. I think I would enjoy sitting there alone with a cup of good tea just to ponder life.:) We are heading into winter, too, so have to put a rush on the little residence we are moving into. The first stage of our new location. Enjoy your day, Cro. DebReplyDelete
So pretty Cro and, I love the roof …. it looks like a magicians hat !! …. and, it's so nice when the plants around a new building start to mature. It looks as if it's been there for years. XXXXReplyDelete
That's the nicest thing you could have said. I was hoping for 'instant maturity'.Delete
No wonder you wake up happy.ReplyDelete
Must look spectacular in summer when the wisteria is in flower. You should be very proud of what you have built.ReplyDelete
It's like a vacation home, and very nice. But let's hope the snow doesn't start up just yet. Yesterday I saw two fuzzy caterpillars on the road and a flock of geese flying south. Not good.ReplyDelete
At least you won't have to remember the enamel pot once you get back in the house.ReplyDelete
Wot; the guzunda?Delete
Yep, you got it.Delete
It looks very inviting.ReplyDelete
You seem to me to have the absolute ideal life over there.ReplyDelete
It is absolutely gorgeous, I am extremely jealous. All you need now is Lady M letting her hair down at the window, high on the roof, like Rapunzle.ReplyDelete
That looks the perfect spot to pen a bestselling novel :)ReplyDelete
If only I could write one Lorna.Delete
It looks fab. Is that a wisteria growing up the wall, I think they're lovely.ReplyDelete
Yes. I'm not very adventurous with plants, simply because my knowledge is NIL. But Wisteria does the job perfectly.Delete
I find that the older I get, the simpler I like to live--Your summer retreat seems perfect to do just that!ReplyDelete
That certainly is the appeal for me.Delete
