Blaise Rustic Cottage

Blaise Rustic Cottage newly thatched
Her cottage, then a cheerful object, wore
Its customary look, - only, it seemed,
The honeysuckle, crowding round the porch,
Hung down in heavier tufts; and that bright weed,
The yellow stone-crop, suffered to take root
Along the window's edge, profusely grew,
Blinding the lower panes.

“The Ruined Cottage” – William Wordsworth

My Dear Guests,
I wish we could all go back a little ways in time (to 2006 I do believe) and see this cottage as it was in the picture above. The description of the photo reads:

“The roof is now green metal ... and I don't think it's inhabited any more. The wooden walls are also green, but coloured by nature.”
Here is the cottage with its renovations

Nevertheless, it is still very beautiful. There are so many details to be seen.
