This is lovely. Like the beautiful houses I see on "Midsomer murders" or "Agatha Raisin"...

Glad to hear! And... can you tell me if the grass has that so bright shade of green (here little grass and it is more dark green).

Rosalyn Hilborne club has replied to Xata club
Sorry for the late reply Isabel. Yes the grass is very green. It has been refreshed by a couple of days rain.

Isn't that a marvellous way to crown the thatch on this great old building. As Xata said, 'Midsomer Murders' material indeed. :-)

Ha, ha..............from the thumbnail, I actually thought you'd spotted a real fox on the roof :-))

Two smashing photos Rosa..........I really like the gorgeous thatched cottage and the dog chasing the fox is just brilliant. Some thatchers actually have a signature shape that they put up on the ridge of the roof apparently.

Seeing this set me off on a bit of researching............there's a really interesting article here: reginajeffers.blog/2017/06/01/thatching-a-roof about thatching a roof if you're interested.

Rosalyn Hilborne club has replied to Keith Burton club
Well I had to look twice Keith!! My daughter has two birds on her thatch. Thank you for the link. Yes it's very interesting. I was very fascinated watching thatchers work on a cottage opposite where we stayed in Devon once. It was 1972...and I still remember ;-))

Thank you very much for your great comments. Have a good new week.

Rosalyn Hilborne club has replied to fifi club
Thank you Philippe. It's interesting to see the different styles of thatch in other countries. I noticed quite a few in The Netherlands but completely different to those in England.
Good evening and have a good new week.

It's good to see the complete thing although I think the close up makes the best photo, some thatched properties around here, slate used to be quarried locally but it didn't split like Welsh slate it was very thick so a roof started with big ones at the eaves getting smaller to the ridge

Rosalyn Hilborne club has replied to Peter Castell club
I thought that as well Peter. I like Welsh slate.

This isn't St. Mary Mead, of course.
But!I can't help but imagine Miss Marple living in this delightful cottage with the thatched roof , the climbing roses and ,as a final touch, the dog chasing the fox!

The Great Agatha would have been so charmed by these gorgeous images of yours as much as I am now.
All the best, dear Rose..Have a good new week.

In the strict sense there are two versions of Fox on the Run, that quicken the hearts of popular music lovers.
One by The Sweet and the other one by Manfred Mann's Earth Band. No clue? ;))
