Took a beautiful walk through the neighborhood on Saturday morning, and stopped underneath this trellis of hanging lilacs for some pics, when the gardener of the premesis happended to be around the corner and surprised me with an offering of some cuttings from his garden. I had a pretty prop for the rest of the morning and got a few gardening tips too! I didn't take any shots of it (there is construction going on around it), but to the left of this doorway is a little plot of land that this kind gardener has lanscaped into a little sloped paradise. Will have to come back and visit in a few weeks and take more pics. We have the best neighbors!
One of the things a cousin of mine from Spain noticed when she visited us-- the houses are "candy-colored" here. It's so true-- there is an explosion of color I notice every time I take a wallk. So many possible backdrops!
Secret stairways abound in our neck of the woods.
One of the back streets I take everyday on my way to the Post Office-- used to be one of the main paths used to take cattle to pasture in the 1800s. (I know there's a joke in there somewhere).
