Flowers all over the back of the house

These orange flowers coat the roofs of the bathroom, water heating room and the storage at the back of the house



The back of the house is where all the work is/used to be done. The bathroom is separate from the house and adjacent to the water heating room. It's not used much anymore, but we used to stoke fires every evening to heat a huge tank of water so that everyone could wash themselves with warm water. The smell of wood fires makes me think of it. Now we have a water heater, so we don't get to encourage our inner pyromaniac anymore. The clothes used to be washed by the women every morning outside the water heating room, but then we got a washing machine. One thing is still the same, all the vegetables are washed out here. Phew, change can only happen so fast, I suppose.
