Drive Bys Around The World #1

Melissa of The Inspired Room often offers us readers a visual feast of beautiful all-American houses.
My first post is of rather more modest dwellings that I come across on my way to work.

There are early 20th century buildings, now uninhabited, like the one below.

This is a mid-20th century one, with a lovely, fragrant courtyard.
This outdoor garage is graced by a beautiful flowery crown.
Roses are the neighborhood's favorite flower.
Some opt for hanging baskets.
While others for the more traditional, fragrant honeysuckle.
This is one of the new homes in the neighborhood,
with a well groomed back garden.
I hope you enjoyed the tour!
