this old house thursday: old red

the owner grooms this house
like a beloved child,
to walk past it
is to move along the edge of enchantment

It is a lovely combination of house and garden: resembling a doll's house in design.

Your capture is enchanting as well with the red flowers in the foreground to help keep your eye in the photo. Great red turn of the century house!
