I don't recall the Munster garden being so colorful though. Of course, it was a black and white show...
A tall shrubbery prevents a public view of the garden inside.
Not being brave enough to knock on the door and ask to see the inside garden, I just snapped a few shots from the sidewalk.
O.K. I may have gone up a couple of steps to get these shots of some of the beds overflowing with Dahlias (roses beyond.)
Out in the side parking strip, a good sized apple tree was heavy with this attractive fruit.
The side of the house is equally interesting. Because of the big porch on this side,we wondered if this was originally the front of the house, the original house being exclusively this part. Often houses were built and in subsequent years, additional parts would be added. Although, it's a bit unusual to have a chimney on the front of a house and side porches were also common. If you scroll back up, it's entirely possible that the current front entrance, turret, and the rest of the house were a later addition. Maybe not.
Love the sempervivum on th sides of the concrete steps. I'm trying to get mine to do this but the soil there is very poor, in blazing sun, and gets very little water. Maybe I'll try small agaves instead.
stalk walk by this garden again to maybe be invited to see more!
