A Silk Purse from a Sow’s Ear


This little house sets on a corner that we passed frequently when our kids were in high school because it was between our house and the school.  But, at that time, over 20 years ago, it was vacant, run-down and looked like it was going to fall down.

Then someone bought it … and it was transformed.  Yes, they fixed up the house, but that isn’t what I notice.  When I go by there now, as I did yesterday, I never fail to notice all the flowers everywhere.

What a gift this homeowner gives to everyone who drives past this formerly neglected house, that is now a thing of beauty because of all the flowers!

    Amy — the cascade of red roses on the porch railing are what really caught my eye yesterday, so I circled around and drove past again so that I could take a picture. Amazing what flowers can do to dress up an otherwise plain house.

  3. I’m glad the house finally found someone to love it!
    It’s just beautiful,a real delight to see.

    I used to drive past a particular house that gave me some bad memories (ex boyfriend). Then, his parents moved away and since then, it has been transformed by FLOWERS. It’s beautiful. Enjoyed this post.

    Miss Danielle — Me too.

    Mrs4444 — It is amazing, isn’t it, how flowers can transform any house, no matter how humble, into a thing of beauty!
