Climbing roses in Teddington - # 09/81

A delightful row of old workman's cottages in Watts Rd, just off Teddington High St. No doubt now costing a King's Ransom to buy or rent.

  1. Toujours j'imagine des vies derrière ces façades presque semblables. Ce sont des petites maisons simples, accolées les unes aux autres, comme le seraient des appartements dans une barre d'immeuble. Et on se demanderait "mais où est ce que j'habite ? où est la chambre de ma fiancée ? en arrivant au bout de la rue.
    Grâce à ces rosiers différents, il est possible d'imaginer, de repérer, de supprimer l'anonymat.
    (Mais cela n'est valable que lorsque les fleurs sont là ; sauf pour celui qui n'a pas été entretenu et dont les branches sont desséchées)

  2. So pretty. I do love it when people decorate their homes with vines and roses. A lovely terrace and so different from how it would have been when these were workmens' cottages.

  3. @Cergie..........thank you for your interpretation; and also for the fact that you obviously looked very closely at the picture.

  5. Nice houses, of course especially if covered with roses!

    Surprising evolution; as you say, which normal "worker" can today afford to live in such a house in a big city!

    Lovely photo and nice feedback. I lived in the house with the white roses for 5 years, until July 2007. It is a lovely little Lane.
