I just know there are houses that you pass by regularly that you always glance at because they just call out to you. This is mine. It is on Silver Street, and I pass it numerous times per week. It’s beautiful, and it just screams historic New England.
This is even the second time I’ve shown you that handsome black door. So, why the repeat? In those two parallel beds next to the walkway, they always had a row of red geraniums plants in the ground that were quite eye-catching.
But, this year, they installed six massive black iron urns planted with annuals that just almost stop my gardening heart. My yearly gardening budget probably wouldn’t cover the cost of one of those planters, but I sure do enjoy them when I drive by.
If anyone would have asked me if the home owners could have done anything to draw more attention to this door and house, I would have been at a loss for suggestions. Someone with extremely good taste has certainly shown me how to increase curb appeal with the addition of six planters proportionate to the size of the house. Garden on.
Best wishes to everyone for a long Labor Day weekend. NH is only expecting about a million visitors this weekend which means I stay off the interstate. Stay safe, have fun, and get ready for leaf blowing because a few maples are already starting to turn. 🍁
