Although this is an autumn scene, the trees and stone house are so dreamy and beautiful. I used to want a house in Upstate NY that was like this .. down a country lane, plenty of trees and all that fall color.
This reminds me of where we used to live . Beautiful stately homes, old , huge trees and plenty of space for gardens. I am really missing my little gardens.
I miss being able to hop in the car and drive somewhere for a picnic too. Somehow, just walking down to the park doesn't do it for me anymore.. or at least not in my tired of cold weather way of thinking.
I would settle for a loggia .. this color is wonderful.
I hope you enjoyed a bit of winter dreaming with me.
