The settee was so inviting.


Last week I posted about the Victorian house with the porch. This is part of the grounds of the house. Such a serene setting. It was like looking onto a scene from a Jane Austin novel. I expected Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice to skip across the alcove to sit and watch the aristocracy pass by while she dreamed of her future lover.

The environment surrounding the retreat matched the stillness of the captured moment as well. It was dusk..twilight as I took the picture. The rush hour over, everyone in there homes after a days work settling in for the night. The only sounds heard were the birds save one faint distant siren from the near downtown. I am going to visit this scene after a snow...I can imagine the beauty of the snow covered trees with the silence that only a fresh snowfall can provide.

That would be a lovely refuge to think and relax. I would get lost in my book in that beautiful setting.

I'm a new fan of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy - I think this would have been a great spot for her to sit and think about him.

Oh Dan I would love to have backyard like that, Anna :)

Dan Felstead said...

Scattering...do you think Mr. Darcy would even realize that Elizabeth is on the Settee?
