This would often take the form of a small, roofed building on the grounds of a larger one, but could also be built in a garden or park, often designed to provide cool shady places of relaxation or retreat from the summer heat.

is dreaming ......

but the Texas white tail deer would gobble

But still a girl can dream
and of course, pretty furnishing
would be a must!
and here is where my dream
originated.....in my cousin's pretty English
garden, where I spent many an
afternoon relaxing in his sweet
Every Little Birdie says
Just a Texas girl dreaming of a English Summer
