Autumn colors highlighted by the blue sky and the brilliant shine of the sun. Not bad for the middle of October.
Speaking of fairy tale houses...
The Welwyn Cottage was built in 1926. As you can see it has been lovingly cared for during the past 84 years. I spoke with the current owner who was doing yard work outside. The love he has for this home was evident in the manner in which he spoke about it.
Another aspect of fairy tales is the unique.
Now you might be asking what is unique about this building? It was built in 1913 but it doesn't look that unique. And from a distance I guess it doesn't. But this building was recognized by Ripley as being the narrowest building in the world.
And just to be totally above board although both Ripley and the Guiness Book of World Records have considered this to be the narrowest building in the world that status has been challenged by to other buildings in the states.
I hope you find the beauty around you.
