Thursday is "This Old House Day"

[click image to enlarge]



This handsome 1910 colonial house, with a gambrel roof line, is on the corner of Monroe Rd. and Fairmount Way on Hospital Hill. You get two views of today's post which could also be called "this old tree" day. The tree must be a couple hundred years old and growing moss on its bark like crazy during this rainy stretch. It dwarfs the house and is magnificent to see up close. (For authenticity, I left the rain drop spots on the first picture . . . truth be told I just noticed them while post processing.)

LOVE that big old tree! Great photo! I've been following you for a while now and have you linked to my home page as a blog I look at every day. You do a great job, so THANKS for all the cool photos!

What a charming place. So beautifully maintained and landscaped. We have a tree map in Brattleboro. You can take a walk using a lovely little guide and learn about some of the more remarkable trees in the neighborhood. Looks like these trees in your photos would make it into a similar guide.

The house is beautiful, such a lovely place to live. It shows that the owners are proud.

But that tree is magnificent!
