These are the steps leading up to the terrace behind La Petite Maison. When we first moved in, they were buried beneath layers of accumulated leaf fall, and we had no idea that they were actually a substantial set of stone steps. They lead down to a smaller stone terrace, which is where I’m standing to take the photo, and another set of steps takes you down to ground level, and the lane which runs past the house. The lower terrace and steps are still covered in leaf mould. One of our jobs for the winter is to clear them, hopefully revealing more stonework.
