Rachel and I did "Buckhead in Bloom 2010" hosted by and benefiting the Atlanta Preservation Center. I took almost 70 amateur pictures. I'm going to post a few at a time.
Here are entrances from the 6 homes on the tour. You can make all these bigger if you click them, and you should see them bigger.
The Philip Shutze house with stars and pineapple.
The playhouse with goose, fern, lamp, and sconce.
The Clement Ford house, well, one of the garden passageways with gravel, sticks stones and porcelain.
Azelea house featuring your dorky host for scale.
Unknown architect's house with fancy fan and sidelights.
Neel Reid house.
Thanks so much to Atlanta Architect and Atlanta Preservation Center trustee Rodolfo Castro for inviting me and other bloggers. From left to right: me, my daughter Rachel, Rodolfo, and his wife, Kim.
Thanks so much to the Atlanta Preservation Center for putting this on. Here are the ticket folks in their shady office.
Other Atlanta bloggers were there too. I saw Helen Young from Whitehaven blog. She'd seen Holly from Things that Inspire, and Blayne Beacham from This Photographer's Life (In Search of a Style), and James from Limestone & Boxwoods.
And thanks so much to my old work friend (he's not old, I'm am) Steven Bennett for saying hello.
More later and thanks,
Keeping the Cord Safe From the Sander
