Just down the street from our little library, we happened upon this flower bed. Of course, you could tell it's not in my yard, because I don't plant fresh, seasonal flowers throughout the year. I'm lazy that way.
Right in the middle of my own little town, this is the Town Center building. It was built by a prominent local family, and deeded to the town (said family also built the school and deeded that to the town) in the 1920s. Isn't this marble entry door simply wonderful?
And this house is the oldest one in town. It was the first house built which wasn't a log cabin (all of which are long gone), and was built by a doctor in 1826. It was sold a year or 2 ago to a young family who evidently is very excited about the holidays. This is the second Halloween they've decorated; last year, it was just the crows. Ryan reports that he's seen plenty of cars simply stop in the middle of the street to take pictures of the yard, and it was featured in our paper today.
I love that these people are so enthusiastic about their beautiful home. They also gave me a great Halloween edition for Garden Tuesday, because you're all doubtless bored with my yard.
