I am still in England today, so to speak, showing enchanting English cottages. These fairy-tale type cottages are in England and have ivy or moss growing on them. A comment I saw sums it up for me. “Oh thine beautiful England, I doth thee my cap!”
A reader sent me the awesome foliage covered English cottage shown below. I traced it to a Facebook called 1,000,000 Pictures where people love fairy-tale English cottages. They also comment that the foilage would bring bugs, or is a fire hazard, which did not occur to me. All I thought was that it was beautiful. Someone lovingly trimmed the foliage above the windows.
This English cottage is in Yorkshire via dyingofcute tumblr and it is indeed dying of cuteness.
The stuff dreams are made of complete with white geese or ducks. “I pray thee, if it stand with honesty, Buy thou the cottages, pastures, and the flock.” – Shakespeare’s The Sonnets. Little village of Longstock, county of Hamphire, England. Found on vintagerosegarden.tumblr
This photo from imgur.com, an image sharing blog, is going around Pinterest as a ruined cottage with comments that it is “sunk.” I’ll take it ruined as it. It looks more like a castle with a moat. My sleuth skills failed to find any other information.
Update: A reader let me know this is the Old Scotney Castle in Kent England.
Proverbs quote: “Better joy in a cottage than sorrow in a palace.”
Thomas Kincade: “Everyone can identify with a fragrant garden, with beauty of sunset, with the quiet of nature, and with a warm and cozy cottage.”
