After the little ramble through Richmond in the sunshine the other day, which made lovely splashes of light and shadow, we’ve been hit by sharp rain and wind.
So I thought I would just keep the warmth going with some more pictures.
The pretty Victorians on Richmond Terrace always look sensibly attired, as if ready for church or a visit by a great aunt, even in the bare of winter –
while the house in Firebell Lane with her circular stairwell and bright red embellishments seems ready for action at any time of day or night.
I have semi-stalked a lovely colonial cottage on Bothermabo St over the past couple of years while she has been refurbished. The day the back of the house was removed – turning the building into an oversized dolls’ house – was a bit alarming. But luckily the house was in the hands of some careful minders and now has a smart extension, new render all over and restored windows. The curly verandah and picket fence were also reinstated so the house can continue to be a proud and treasured part of the street scape.
