That's really lovely minniepal :o), you're right the sage I was thinking of is a little darker and even warmer than this one but I think the fact that the light is perpetual on this is also a factor. Maybe another coat would deepen it but that still doesn't diminish the fact that the hoose looks bootiful. VERY well done - that's a LOT of hard work there :O) - be very chuffed with yourself :o).

Default the pale green hoose

Maybe i should call the cottege that!
Nope Mickey, you are right, i didnt envisage this wishy washy. Yes, i was thrilled but more and more feel it needs punch.
my polish helper says the same, they go in for colours and she said,
"no, no" door, "yes, yes"
well i got out the swatches again, it will be this colour but as micko says,
richer and slightly darker.

Hi Minnie P....


Ready for my verdict... I have to tell the truth ... cant lie .... I love the green... it looks very calming, beautiful and peaceful .... and i hope you have many happy contented years in this home...



BUT .... I dont like the door ... Sorry :-( it in my own opinion and only mine it just dosent do justice to the lovely green... BUT what i dont like millions of others WILL ... we are all different ,,, and you are the one who has to live with it at the end of the day ... as long as you are happy :-)


I love the flowers either side of the front door ....

Minnie P.... how are the slugs these days ???? mine have all but disappeaered... and that's not for the want of skewering them and dropping them into a chimena.... but all the rain we have had !!!!


have you any ants in your garden??? I have been looking all day in my garden for ants... and cant find one... I bought an ant farm for the kiddies and cant find one to put in it.... Typical ....


Take care MP ... Summersun

Default Da door!

Hi,
I LOVE the door! the local kids call it 'deadly' that is the whole colour scheme, the next door neighbour said its fab.
Polish PA, loves the door and thinks the green is wishy washy.

NOW...self...i LOVE da door!!! Tis a lovely site coming up the drive on the scooter, if i manage to get that through the gate without taking the sides off of it and shopping held high, if doesnt fit on platform under me knees!

It just shows you how doctors differ and patients die eh?
even with illness everyone goes for a second opinion.

Just managed to send copies of the article in 'Irish Gardens' sept ed as my patio has been designed there, managed to scan em, first in b/w and then send in colour, thats a first for me!!!

Now chosen the feature wallpaper for the bedroom and also the kitchen with the help of my polish PA.
she is young and i think we both have the same tastes.

Colour rules!!!!
Do you think it might be a tad bit WET for the ole ants (aunts too) at present?
Slugs, diddo, not so much in abundance, lot of chihuahua **** though!

Default Breaking news!

whether my appearance in the cul de sac did it or not, whether i painted my hoose did it too i cannot tell, but the two men on either side of me have been beavering away on their 'hooses' the man to the right of me has painted his house too, instead of the dreadful dark terracotta, he went for a slightly darker than mine, powder blue and it looks fab.
now the three wee houses actually look great together.

I am really pleased about the guy wwho painted his house blue. he is not a well man and has neglected himself and his house, but he went and did this, so i am abso0lutely thrilled
