A Last Spread of Color

Just a short post today with some pictures of a pretty house that deserves a showing!  I was cleaning up my picture files and noticed that I had not published images of a colorful Victorian house off Lafayette Street, not too far from Salem Harbor and Salem State University.  These shots were taken about a month ago–definitely well into fall, but before the late October snowstorm.  This is a beautifully maintained property and the colors are perfect for this time of year: a dark orange/persimmon with red accents and greenish taupe trim.  It’s a painted lady situated on a sunny corner lot, and the juxtaposition of house, carriage house and garden seems perfectly aligned to me.  As you can see, a month ago the colorful garden was still in bloom.

Not so yesterday.  The garden has been laid to rest, but the house is still beautiful and bright, and ready for the holidays.
