The Herschel home sat above a tree lined boulevard. The driveway has been paved with paving stones and insets of pebble mosaics.
A deck on the front of the house was hidden from the street by pots of roses and clematis covered lattice.
The car port was converted to a patio and the garage into a garden shed.
The shallow back yard seemed large because of the trees, limbed up maples that added a canopy without taking up much space.
Since the second house was only a block away, we walked. The neighbor cat noted our passing.
We got to enjoy other gardens along the way.
The Daggett home has a corner lot with lots of sidewalk frontage. Susan made good use of it.
Here is the gardener, pointing out a planting to another visitor.
Above the sidewalk, in the front yard, unseen from the street, was a vegetable garden.
With a little seating area hidden away.
The back yard was revised to accommodate a wheel chair ramp.
City lots require you to use all your space well. The raspberry patch was tucked in the alley behind the garage.
I do love the use of subtle color layering - the purple grape, the mauve hydrangea, and the deeper shade of purple on the window frame.
And yes, there were yummy cookies too.
