Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

Alexandria VA - Flowers and Exquisite Grounds

I love this brick pathway.  We are building a little one in the cottage garden.

I wish it had been a less hazy day last Saturday, but it was delightfully cool for walking.

Walking in Alexandria

Alexandria, Virginia is one amazing place...full of history and plenty to enjoy today.  When you visit Alexandria, you don't just get to see something about General Robert E.Lee, you see Robert E. Lee's father's house.  His name was Harry "Lighthorse" Lee.

Some rows are brick, some are wood frame
I'm not sure which I like better.

Here's a secluded porch right on the street, with some wonderful geraniums.
The shopping and residential areas are side by side, but each business has to conform to standards to "fit their architecture in."  I'm all over that.  We don't need a Wal-Mart here.
Some of the brick looks like it has been in place since the 1700's.
I can't figure out who would have used this tiny door - hobbits?
