Sandstone


There is also an occasional old home built in sandstone.  I'm sure this would have a name but I could not find it.  They don't seem to like visitors, that is a high electric fence and the front gate is entangled by a thorny rose.

  1. Nice looking house, is that a tin roof? Is the fence for people of animals do you think?aquedsit

  2. Terrific sandstone cottage. We have a few in my suburb and I love going for a walk past them.

  3. They are just asking for trouble.
    Some people just see electric fences as a challenge!

  4. This is a little off-colour but I'm going to put it out there anyway - you might think it's funny.
    You know how at the top of your pages there are those little thumbnails of each blog, well every time I visit and I sort of catch those thumbnails out of the corner of my eye - I am always startled by the photo of the lady going to the toilet(!!!)

  5. I love the second photo - this table and chair are charming. Would be lovely to have a nice cup of tea there:)

  6. Paul, yes a tin roof, by far the most popular roofing material around here.

    Jim, sandstone is such a beautiful mellow colour and to me always seem rich and elegant.

    Letty, maybe it is meant for possums as I am not aware of any major break and enter problems around here. I think I had better go take a new people photo on the weekend to give the poor lady a rest!

    Joo, afernoon tea in the garden is a lovely idea especially on the very warm summer days we are having at the moment.

  10. Do you think the pitchfork is to prod people back over the fence, should they stray too far?
    When I lived in the country I became used to people's addresses being described as "they live in so-and-so's old house".Each time I shifted within that environment, the street and number never mattered, it was who had lived there before. 'Baker Street' and 'Abernathy Avenue' were just greeted with a cursury nod ,explicitly understood as teacher housing.Loved your photo of Dr. King's house.

  11. I love the jaggle of roof-line. So good for the eye and brain to linger over. I, too, noticed the pitch-fork. I cannot justify one in my court-yard, but might consider one as 'eye candy'.
