across the lane from the arched white fence

this cottage (which you have seen sparkling in her winter cloak)
shimmers in her summer finery

Looks a little like something from Hansel and Gretel, rather cute though.

It's like a fairytale cottage Brattcat, surrounded by forest.

Seems like it is a kingdom all its own!

Love all the poetry of your posts. Analogies, metaphors, imagery, you do it all!

I think "images may appear closer than they are" should be a theme for the CDP community. That was FABULOUS!

Have a great rest of the week!

You have shown us this charming place in winter and summer. How about a short story that begins "It was a dark and stormy night, . . . "

What an enchanted setting... Knowing that the whale-backbone fence leads the way is just about perfect!

Beauty.
But how to clean and watch it on daily basis without servants?))

This is wo0nderful, brattcat. Friends once had a place up there, not far from you, and it looked very much like this beautiful home.

Looks like a lot more than a cottage by my standards. But then living back amongst all those trees would probably make this city boy nervous.

What a beautiful place!!!

(Thanks for your concerns about what have happened here in Norway. It is good to feel that other people, even very far from us, care, and take time to send a few lines.)

The quintessential cottage in the forest...it could be the cottage in a number of fairy tales or children's stories.

Beautiful photo, BC.
