I finally had some time at the weekend to arrange the little stone cottage into more suitable surroundings. So it is now placed in a nice raised bed area of my garden, and I have decided to name it the hamlet of 'Potterton marsh'. It really needs a lawn of some sort at the front of the house, but I don't think I did badly for a days work, so that will have to follow.
Curiously, the 'for rent' sign has come down, and I feel sure there has been some movement of things - but I have not, as yet, met a tenant. So I will have to wait and see if indeed the cottage has become occupied. In the meantime, here is a photo of the greatly improved Potterton marsh!
