  1. I’m a big fan of ironwork; have used pieces in previous gardens . That is some of the most ornate I’ve seen on those gates and fence. Great series – a little walking tour from my armchair πŸ™‚

  2. I love the treillis and when the visteria is in bloom it must be gorgeous. I am familiar with the small resident you saw as we have plenty of them here in California. Lovely shots for a handsome house.

    • There are quite a few such houses on this block, but for some reason I always linger by this one. I wonder if the folks who like there are peering out at me. LOL. The Blooms of the wisteria are just starting to come in, I can’t wait!!
