Not so hot drive-bys

We see this house as we come home from visiting Lorelei.  We don't actually pass by it normally...we see it down the road but we turn the other direction.  When we met them at the park the last time we were over there, we drove past it.  There is no place to pull off, and no way to focus on it much before hand.
So even though these are not the greatest, they will probably be about as good as I can ever get.  I want to encourage you to click to view the expanded version.  This is some house! Just look at all there is to see.

I don't think it has completely quit raining this whole day.  Part of the time it might have been a fine mist, but still, it was doing something.  It has also cooled down a little bit. When we were out today I did have to wear a jacket.

My tulips are blooming, but I did not get out to try to take photos, though I did mean to.  It just didn't happen.  Our yard really needs to be mown.   And won't be long till we will thinking about going to the green house for plants....well, it will be a little while.  But it is just around the corner!

Looks like a lot of work went into building this house. I can't believe you have tulips blooming, it's going to be awhile for us.

I am thinking of going to a tulip festival this weekend, but it is an hour and a half away...so maybe not. I would love to see inside this house!!!

Excellent pictures BTW. MB

A real pretty house. I always love the gingerbread on these places, such artistry from way back and I love the look of the old houses much more than the new ones.

I call them Nods to the past...I love the artistic found in these old homes. The house built today are grand, and cute, but not a lot of artistic character. I can relate to not being able to get a good photograph because of not being able to pull over and to much traffic :(

I woke up to an ice storm this morning. Pretty but dangerous.

That is a magnificent home!

That is a pretty home. It looks well cared for too.

That is one awesome house! :-) Glad you took some pictures of it. Thanks for commenting on my quilting blog, too. Gotta get back to the machine again tomorrow! :-) A journey of a completely quilted quilt begins with the first several hundred thousand stitches! :-)

Wonderful house! I love the trim on it. Don't you hate when those poles "leap" in the way while trying to get a driveby??? Some houses are just so hard to get a good shot, especially when you can't stop. We've mown once already and need to mow again before we leave. Everything getting so nice and green. I'm going to miss my lilacs blooming and the cherry tree is getting buds, too.

I bet it's a ton of work to keep that house ship-shape!
