One of the many valuable tips Rachel gave me when she visited was to create a little eating area in this private nook. At first it seemed like one more thing to add to the massive "to-do" list in the garden (it seems large to me for a cottage this size), but once things started moving along, I had the energy to take on this project. The addition of a pretty robin's egg blue cafe set from my in-laws' old apartment in Paris (thanks Nana Becca & Grandpere) transformed the space instantly. I added a mini-topiary and voila...it's time for tea.
p.s. that's the Dordogne River through those trees...during the autumn and winter you can see the river in full view and it's stunning.
