We’ve spent much of our time at La Verrerie in 2012 re-painting the shutters. We’ve gone for a darker blue. We’ve not done the doors and window frames to match yet so just think of it as a “contrasting” colour scheme.
With the significant growth of the creeper up the walls and the ivy up the buttress in the last couple of years, and the new colour scheme, the house looks quite different from the earlier photos on the website.
The shrubs and trees around the top bank of the lawn have also grown considerably of late, and in the last couple of years the walnut tree adjacent to the terrace of Gite 2 has been adding nuts to the ample supply we already get each October from the large tree by the BBQ shelter.
