This is a beautiful photograph. Just look at that garden!!!!
The cats can prowl between the cabbage leaves; an exotic green tangle of giant leaves. Their long winter in front of the stove can be filled with dreams of the jungle.
I had to post it large as well so you can explore more easily!
I wonder how many plants Mrs. Brandt had in the house over winter? She must of tried to have some house plants.

Fannie took this picture. Such a look!!
Go to Wikipedia to read more about Fannie. She was a fascinating woman!!
This was the courtyard where Herman and Vermin reigned supreme.
Frances "Fannie" Benjamin Johnston (15 January 1864 – 16 May 1952) was one of the earliest American female photographers and photojournalists.
"An independent and strong-willed young woman, she wrote articles for periodicals before finding her creative outlet through photography after she was given her first camera by George Eastman, a close friend of the family, and inventor of the new, lighter, Eastman Kodak cameras. She received training in photography and dark-room techniques from Thomas Smillie, director of photography at the Smithsonian."
