My curious eye cannot resist peeping through gates, or over walls to discover, and enjoy back gardens..
Washing drying amongst roses.
A gardeners shed.
And a colourful balcony.
A young couple bought a quarry alongside a disused railway line. They had very little money, so they built their house with their own hands, and slowly transformed the quarry, over forty or more years, into a shady, colourful garden. They planted trees, shrubs and flowers.They cultivated fruit trees and grew vegetables. And they continued the countryside custom of breeding pigeons to sell at their local market.
Each time I visit, I am delighted to see such a paradise for pigeons, where each breeding couple is so clearly loved and looked after.
