Old Huntsville

Yesterday we went into the old part of Huntsville. The houses in this part of town range from the early 1900's to as early as the very early 1800's with a few newer ones thrown in for good measure. However, I will start the post with a funny photo. If you have read my blog, you know how chilly it has been in the Pacific NW. It is very warm here, in the 80's. In an effort to keep us comfortable the Son and DIL have kept the air on. Well, the other night I guess it was a bit much for a little Alabama boy. While we were finishing dinner, he went quietly upstairs and got his pillow and blankets , brought them down, and laid by the oven. I(being the one who hates the heat) took quite a teasing! That' s the first photo!

Notice the white azaleas plus a lovely white dogwood.

I love this idea. I have a piece of leaded glass at home, I think I'll try it on the porch.

I love this porch!

A pink dogwood with lots of spring bulbs.

This trim amazes me!

This is the SBA's favorite.

This is my favorite,very early 1800's.

These are early poured bricks on the above house.

I love this door!

This is a formal garden but so pretty, it reminds me of Williamsburg.

Steeple on a church 150 years old.

This fan is on a house called the Weeden House. It is a museum.

Beautiful white dogwoods.

A lovely cherry, I must look this one up!
Thanks for joining me and I love the comments. Thank you so much!
