A dreamy cottage of imagination.
It lies far, far away from the bustling city, and instead of buildings, it is completely encompassed and surrounded by quiet nature. Roses, growing freely in a myriad of colors, shapes and sizes, that are so soft, full and fragrant —set off by the warmth of sunshine. Walls of climbing vines that feel more like an embracing blanket of natural beauty, happily stretching their arms and growing alongside architectural details for contrast... a wooden door marking the entrance to a garden tucked away from eyesight, yet always open, and stone pathways to walk along. Maybe even a little bridge and pond for that matter...
