Building number 22

On a favourite walk around a bit of Limoux known as St Antoine we came across this once-loved construction with it's rather jaunty harlequin tiles and ingenious water recuperating pipe.
I'd like to ask the owners if they have any photos of the garden and shed before it all fell into disuse, but alas I think they may have also fallen into disuse as well. Sad — so many little abandoned gardens dotted about with their rotting benches and straggly unpruned roses, places where people would have once spent a summer afternoon weeding, perhaps grilling something on a homemade BBQ while swallows swooped overhead and bees droned in the marigolds.
