One sunny summer day while pushing my sons in the stroller, down the sidewalk past this amazing edifice, I over heard the owner tell an interested "passerby" that this home had been in his family since before the Civil War. Fascinating!
I dearly love this home. Over the years, it has been used in Farm Bureau Insurance commercials. I don't know if they were only shown locally, or nationally too. An elderly gentlemen lives here alone. I hope he is able to hang all of his gorgeous ferns on the porch again this summer.
About 18 years ago, a co-worker of my husband reworked this home for his family. It still looks pretty good, I think!
The big red house! Every neighborhood needs one. And isn't it pretty against the blue sky?
OH MY GOODNESS this home is for sale! The front door has a full beveled glass window. See the wrap around porch! In the spring and summer the lady of the home sets out wonderful arrangements of flowers. She has her arrangements color coordinated. They are different every year.
You know, I told you that I would take a picture of the first flower that pops its courageous head through the hard cold soil. Well...I've been looking, and it's not happening, YET! Yesterday the sky was such a beautiful blue with white puffy clouds scattered about, the sunshine so radiant, the cold...oh, so crisp!! I admit that the cold wasn't very enjoyable! But over all, if I just looked up, and looked around, I found that it truly was a beautiful day in my neighborhood!!! I hope you can see beauty in your day today too. I'll be looking for more!
Please tell me which house is your favorite!!??
