The Flowery House

I came across this house while exploring a town near me this past winter.

I can't decide if I like it, I'm inclined to think the decor is too much but it is an interesting house.

There was a school bus parked behind it so perhaps it's a daycare center although there are no signs and no playground.

I love it. Would like to see the inside. Happy Tuesday.

Someone has gone to a lot of effort to paint those red shutters beside the windows. Plus all the other decorations. It does look like it is being used for a particular purpose rather than just to live in. Interesting ...

I LOVE it!
It looks like it's along a street with not much of a yard and what better way to have plants that don't need tended.

It os a whimsical look, bright and cheery. A bit too cheery for me, perhaps, but the owners probably feel charmed to have such a canvas for their artistry. A neat capture!

That house is so cool! I love the paintings on the wall.

My Ruby Tuesday post is up HERE.

For some, I suppose it's cool, but for me...way too busy with too much paint on it. LOL I never heard of a tree and plants on side walls. LOL

LOOTERS is my Ruby Tuesday today. Do stop by for a visit if you can. Have a great day.

It's so cheerful. I love all the color and the painted trees, flowers and grass. I kind of hope this is a place for kids because it just seems to have that kind of joy.
