    It appears to be surprisingly in good shape, weathering the elements well. Interesting find; don’t you wish the walls could talk, some interesting stories one would imagine.

  • Hi k, what a treat to see your work here on RB and to read that Wyoming is your favorite state to ride! It is a special place, and what better way than to have the freedom to explore at your own pace / following your own inclination! I do wish these walls could talk; they would tell some stories for sure. Even though this cottage is in France, it bears a striking resemblance to some stone houses across Wyoming. Maybe you’ve seen a few. Cheers, AMR

    Looks like something out of a fairytale. Nice capture of the light and all that green!

  • Hi Jan, yes that green was practically bouncing around. I’ve had this one framed at home for a while and finally resurrected it from .jpg land on the computer to post it here. Thanks for stopping in! AMR

    Jan that’s exactly what I was going to say. Fairytale stuff.

  • Maybe it was the fairytale aura that made me stop and size it up for a shot?! AMR

    A wonderful find, well captured!

  • Hi Trish, I was just visiting your bird friends; it’s amazing the variety you have, and what a treasure each of them is! Good for you for planting for them! AMR

    This is a fav Arla. What a great find.

  • Hi Al, Thanks so much! AMR (a lot of people confuse me with Arla for some reason, maybe because we both love wild horses!)

    Hi, I’m glad you enjoyed viewing some of my bird friends!
    We are blessed with those and more, but some are more difficult to capture!
