Sights to be seen

 "What's with the houses Lynn?  Where have you been

when I'm home sleeping?"

I thought folks might like a look at the big little city, Precious.
The house below has a doll house in the upper window. I felt
that was just a fun thing to see. And the dog on point is concrete.
The house is green, lilac and purple. How colorful it that.

The city was established in 1812 and so many many
homes are Victorian or Georgian or whatever all
those fancy kind were back then. I'm not an architect
just an observer of beauty.

This brick house is complete with postman walking up the steps
to deliver mail.

I thought some might enjoy the walking tour I took one
day this Spring while it was cold enough for a coat, but
warm enough for the redbud and crap apple trees to be 
in bloom. And below is a birds foot violet in the woods
close by home.

"Well, ok, as long as you are now home and I can get
some much needed attention. You humans with your thumbs,
at least you can open my chickie jar."

Thank you for stopping by for a visit and a comment.
It is much appreciated.

lovely pussy~cat at the bottom there..waiting for
her chickie jar to be opened..! Bless!x

Dad says those are some fabulous old homes, and as much as he finds them beautiful the second one, especially, would make an awesome haunted house. The Main Street in the little western MA town he grew up in was lined with such gracious homes. This makes him long for a 100+ year old Victorian he once owned up in New Hampshire, complete with a sharp angled decorative slate roof, gingerbread trim and wraparound porch. Beautiful photos of some very elegant homes, Lynn & Precious! Thank you.

I wish I could smooch right between the earsies! I LOVE the tour and I am very interested in the times. I believe I will show some of that type in my own bloggie, not Katies, of the old old homes in Charlotte NC when I go over the mountains to see one of Katie's human brothers.

Great Post! Houses look wonderful.

I love those old houses; such character! You'd think the blandness of modern residential design would be obvious by the fact that realtors call old houses 'character' houses. Individuality, personality, spirit: it was like each was a person.

And of course Precious with her big eyes is a character herself.

I love to look at old homes like these, Lynn. I grew up in a small town that is packed with Victorian era homes that have been maintained beautifully, just as these have. Today I stopped by a local family-owned garden center, and a beautiful cat that looks very much like Precious came over to help me pick out flowers. Oh, she was so sweet and she was happy to have me pet here. I really wanted to take her home with me. I would love to have a cat just like her. Such a sweetie. Maybe some day I'll have a kitty of my own. Hugs.

Just one neighborhood kitty
