Yes, we do of course have the G.O.U.C. (great outdoors under cover), the large covered patio area which easily seats 12 people but this new area was to be just another area of Daisy Cottage for guests to enjoy. Another facet as it were.

I thought too that on a warm evening it would be the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine in the peace and quiet of a little Donegal village, but yet in privacy secluded as it is from passers-by.
So a couple of weeks ago we went to the local hardware store near Daisy Cottage and found some perfect sandstone paving stones to pave the area. These were duly fitted by one of our friends and we were delighted with the result. The soft, warm colour of the sandstone is easy on the eye and matches in with the sunshine yellow of the walls of the house.

Sitting there, enjoying the sunshine, blue skies and peace I noticed the apple trees in the garden of Daisy Cottage in full bloom and reluctantly dragged myself away from the comfort of the new chair to wandered down to pick a sprig of the pretty apple blossom, returning with it to drink my orange juice.
