Storybook Setting

I had been "oohing and aahing" at gardens all over Paris when my French friend said, "I want to show you something."
We drove down a narrow lane and as we turned into a gravel driveway, I looked up and saw this house! I assure you those pink hydrangeas are real. I had never seen hydrangeas planted in window boxes before and combined with the light blue trim work, it was simply gorgeous. I found it hard to leave. I was sure that if I peeked in the windows, I'd see a grandfather clock dancing with a teapot! You see, storybook settings really do exist.

Hi Anne. What a gorgeous picture. Just looking at it makes me happy. It also brings back memories of a bed & breakfast that I stayed in out east somewhere, and thinking of that makes me even happier... so thanks for all the happiness. Funny how such a little thing can really brighten up your day (even when it's almost midnight).
