It is the most glorious day here at StoneGable. Sorta like living in San Diego today! You know those days… warm, breezy, sunny, low humidity, birds singing…lawn edger whirling, trucks up and down the driveway, voices of hearty men wafting through the open windows, men heaving mulch everywhere … wait!!!… what?
My original posting plan was to take photographs of some pretty vignettes around the porch and gardens this morning. The camera is so kind in early morning light. The flowers are blooming, the pots are full of blooms too! Did I mention, it is a glorious, San Diego type day at StoneGable?
It is set back a little from the main house, sorta tucked away. It does not look like an important door, so it is not often used by anyone other than family.
The flowers in the foreground are Annabelle hydrangeas. Their big moppy white heads will soon be making a showy appearance around the front porch!
The basket hang by a rusty brass hook because the basket is so very heavy and nothing else will hold it! The brass hook suites the door. If you look under the window there is a small brass plate with our last name on it. It has gone with us to every new house for thirty years.
Petunias, Snowstorm and White Helitrope fill the basket. I think they will be happy on the second front door!
