For Bloom Day I did my usual cheating and showed you bark and
architecture in not my own but a public garden – cheating being great sport for us gardeners experiencing actual
winter (as opposed to whatever Californians call their bizarre climate).
But for great color no matter the weather or how dormant the garden
may be, you can’t beat house color – love those painted ladies! So here’s a sampling from a walk through my
neighborhood and I thank my neighbors for their imaginations, their daring-do as
homeowners, and their willing to pay good house painters and sometimes
even color consultants.
Back home, the light-blue siding and white trim on my Sears bungalow sure look dull. Low-maintenance, but dull.
