~ Beehive Cottage ~ 

Beehive Cottage is being rethatched
she looks like she has a new Easter hat !
the thatch looks lovely but not made out of reeds
instead it seems to be corn with ears ;-)

always be careful what secrets you tell
in a cornfield thats silent you think all is well
and so please remember that corn has ears
and will listen to you share laughter and tears ;-)

a little video of Beehive Cottage ~ Beehive Cottage ~

~ Beehive Cottage ~ o0o Hello Nadine .. yes indeed ... once done though how lovely it looks, I shall have to take a photo of when it is completed ... they have such character when they are thatched and well worth preserving I think for our heritage oOo

A good evening for you too I hope ;-)

~ Beehive Cottage ~ o0o thanks William, its a gem of a cottage but so very close
to the road ... hardly any spare front which is a shame really ... I expect its noisy to live
in there ... but what a place to live in ;-) hope you have a good week too, thanks oOo

It looks to me (second note) that they're using wheat straw. A great series on a very specialised skill indeed.

beverleyplaya has replied to tiabunna
~ Beehive Cottage ~ o0o yes I think so ... and remember not to tell your
secrets in a wheat (corn) field, wheat has ears George ;-) but your secrets are
always safe with me ;-) and it is fascinating to see them work and intend to take
some more photos when he has finished the job ;-) oOo

It looks like a hive,
but no bees inside.
Add some honey.
Make some money
People would come from all around
To see this amazing thing you found!

An interesting place indeed, captured very well in this series of shots.
I hope the corn heard me...

I like the thatched roofs a lot - beautiful for the eye and great natural isolation. A bit afraid I would be during new year's celebration ... :-)

it seems that not only the roof catched your eye ;-)))))

beverleyplaya has replied to El pare
~ Beehive Cottage ~ o0o this is a very very old cottage and is being maintained
as it always has appeared ... I think thats so good to see .. and we have many of course
all over the country ... many in Stratford and the Cotswolds also ... but they are to be
found everywhere really and do tell a story of past times ... as with Anne Hathaway's
Cottage at Stratford .. ;-) oOo
