Last November, I wrote about the foreclosed house next door to us. After many offers fell through, it has now been sold to an investor (flipper) who is drastically renovating it inside and out. I guess that’s a good thing because he won’t be selling it cheaply or renting it in poor condition for a nominal amount to some crackheads. The houses in our neighborhood are 60 plus years old. Some other foreclosures in this area have also been remodeled lately and, although they look quite nice, they don’t really retain the look of an older home…which I think is unfortunate.
This house had some unattractive siding on it which, thankfully, he has torn off. When he did that, this colored glass window from the 1940s was revealed. But…he said he was probably going to cover it up again so that leads me to believe that this house won’t be retaining its historical integrity either. I would consider it a bonus to find this. I’ve left him a note offering to buy the window if he pulls it out but I know he probably won’t be doing that, just stuccoing over it. I want it, though! I hate to see it disappear again, maybe forever.
Tomorrow I will be starting a 4 week online photography workshop with Camilla from Bloom and her friend, Carolyn. So I guess you will be seeing the results of my assignments here for awhile, along with my 52 Project, of course. I’m kind of excited about it and hoping I learn some new things.
Meanwhile, here are a couple more spring photos from my yard, taken last weekend.
Does anyone know what this flower is (above)?
Spring has sprung!
