Grab a thermos of tea or coffee and come take a morning walk with me and Bentley too and we will show off just a few of the charming cottages in our neighborhood. First stop above is Amy's Garden. Amy is an Engineering Professor at BSU, but she also has quite the green thumb. She owns two cottages, side by side and uses one for visiting profs, friends and relatives. The entire front yard is full of veggies, herbs and wild flowers. In the back are her four chickens, Thelma, Louise, Florence and Beatrice. Next stop ... Bentley's place of birth!
Here is the cute little cape cod cottage where you were born Bentley. It's just on the next block. His birth mother Miss Lady lives there. His birth daddy, Mr Rags, comes to visit, but he lives in another house. Bentley, we don't need to check back at Amy's, the chickens are out back ...
This cottage below belongs to Inger. It is super tiny, about 600 square feet. It was originally built as a "sample house" to show off the architect's plans. Inger is a talented artist with such charming vision. Her little cat is watching us ~ especially watching Bentley!!
Inger added this little potting shed on the side. Isn't it the cutest???
Here's a fine example of Queen Anne style.
Picket fences are everywhere. Traditional white pickets, square pickets, iron ones too!
Porches are hugely popular in the North End. They are a must!!!
Porch swings are seen everywhere ...
Bungalow styles are popular too.
Cottage gardens are popular ....
And hula hoops too!!
Bentley and I are headed home. Here is our little cottage back behind our own picket fence ...
Thanks for taking a morning walk with us. Get a refill of coffee or tea and stop by to visit Cielo at her House in the Roses for Show Off Your Cottage Monday!!
Yes Bentley, you were born in that sweet cottage just one block away!!
Susan and Bentley
