The warmth of a log fire

I have just had new heating installed (it was delayed for six months making Winter very cold indeed!!) it made me think of the days spent when I was younger in front of a huge log fire.  It was so comforting on a cold Winter's evening.  A cup of cocoa and a good conversation,  or quiet gathering of thoughts after a long day.

I love big fireplaces,  especially inglenook fireplaces.  They were more prevalent in England and France and are becoming more fashionable, even in the United States.

Some fireplace!!!!

The old ones are often found with an adjacent bread oven.

Meanwhile Spring is around the corner,  can't wait for country walks and sunny days!
