This residence was built in 1924....it was tastefully decorated with antiques and artwork....the owners requested that we not photograph the interior so the following pictures are of the perennial gardens surrounding the terrace......That is, of course, Carole of Maynard Greenhouse ...her posts will correctly identify all these beautiful flowers......I won't risk making a mistake or misnomer....I just think they're pretty!! :)
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
