Photo of the Day: Delicately Dressed with Trees

Slender, delicate trees give this home a magical feel.

I love these slender trees in front of the windows of this home. They make me think of jewelry, adding sparkle to an otherwise unadorned wall. Other descriptions that come to mind as I view this scene: Window dressings from nature, a translucent fence between house and road, a sprinkle of color against a dark wall, paint splattered across a canvas, light-emitting life growing from the earth below.

The rest of the landscaping is equally as enchanting and helps to soften the angular lines of the home. The curving driveway and circular patio provide a welcoming entry and first impression.
