where I live ~ roofs

I have a special fascination with roofs. I love them and the stories they tell!

I especially love those tiles, with the reddish colors

And all those lichens and little plants you find on old roofs

I also adore wooden roofs from the inside, but I have no photo to show you that. So just bear with a glass one!

One of the dreams I have is to live in a house with a wooden roof. And to return to listen to rain while sheltering under a metallic roof!

Edited to add: more roofs here, at Francesca's, where a lot of nice ideas are born!

I have a little piece of a glass roof (a large skylight, actually), and the sound of the rain on it is amazing, though at times can be too loud.
Thanks for playing along, happy weekend!
