These Fall days have been so pretty and are just right for our daily walks. We have promised ourselves and each other that we will go for a walk every day so of course we take our cameras along.
Today's pictures were taken on the last two walks, all around two blocks where we live. Love this one. :) You have to look carefully to see it in the neighbor's garden as you pass on the sidewalk.
This house was recently rebuilt from the ground up. In the Fall of 2010 a propane grill exploded next to it and caused a huge fire engulfing this home and another. The home is on the diagonally opposite corner of the same block where we live. The fire happened while we were at sea, but our daughter sent us pictures she took the night of the fire. I included those pictures in a post I wrote shortly after we returned home. Click to take a look
. Not only has this house been rebuilt (the garages are on the opposite side of the house now), but the home next door (to the left and out of sight in the above image) was nearly destroyed and has been repaired.
Back to a happier note, this is a beautifully kept garden along a rustic fence.
Although we live in the city and directly across the street from Xavier University, we have some woodland that provides home for deer and now coyotes. We've seen the deer in our yard on our security cameras.
These are two of some absolutely HUGE homes in the area. Ours is quite comfortable, but not this large.
This home is now privately owned again. For a time Xavier University owned it and used it as an honors dorm. It was at a time when our oldest son was attending Xavier and he received an invitation to live here. He politely declined saying his (our) home was even closer to campus by about a half block. ;)
So, that's a little Fall walk around the neighborhood. We have many different types and sizes of homes as well as churches and, of course, a major university all within walking distance. It has been an interesting place to raise children and live for almost 34 years.
All the best,
