Front-yard flowers and colorful houses

 Our street in the mountains looked especially colorful in the subdued light this morning. 

Colorful flowers and houses
The cottage garden in front of the brown house has been blooming all spring and summer;  the gardeners, part-time residents, too, just started planting in spring a year ago, about the time that we did. (Prior to that they'd spent time rehabbing the house).  It doesn't take long to create something magical with the right plants (and judicious editing and replacement).  Their visits are spent tending the garden.  The green house has been recently painted and renovated (having sat empty for a couple of years); the new young owners plan to add a picket fence and create a herb garden in containers (the fence in the photo belongs to the next house).  And the purple and adobe house simply rounds out the Asheville ambience.

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
