Hi All

As you know we stay in the old post office house

We were in the local super market and found these two bird feeders that fitted in with our house

We must be the only people that have  a phone box and a post box in their front garden and their back garden

Also pics of Kiri and Kara in Lairds Loch

Hope you likecool bird feeders.jpg 2016 Alpine garden.jpg post box and phone box.jpg front door area 2016.jpg 2016 front door.jpg Kiri Kara Lairds loch.jpg Lairds Loch.jpg

I want one of those old phone booths, they would make a killer fish aquarium!

Love it !! Thanks for sharing ! Must say your two dogs look so much like ours, even the way they hold themselves in the water. I could show family and they would say where is that lake at? Wife agrees, dogs look like ours, nobody would believe thousands of miles apart. Thanks again, great photos !

I love the bird houses!, I also love the style of the buildings you have around there, I have always liked stone structures.

Thanks for the pictures

Wow!  That is pretty cool.  I can't quite imagine living in a house that old, but over here we don't have bldg's that old.  We tend to tear down and rebuild which most of the time isn't as good as what was there before.  I love the old world charm.  Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful home you have.  It's nice to know it's history.  I like the bird feeders. :D

 

The flowers in the front are great.

I spent a good part of my mid teen to mid 20s life in an old home here in New England.Ithe was built in 1696 in Royalston Mass.
My grandfather and I rebuilt almost the entire house back to its highest standard that was faintly present when they purchased it in 1978.
The history we uncovered was incredible!
It was hard to believe they were even able to build it then as the Indians were all over that area.
