BLUE ON WOOD – Marilyn Armstrong


Every autumn, I go and take pictures of this little house because it sits next to a large maple tree that turns bright red or orange every fall. So I have a series of pictures of this house on subsequent autumn afternoons. Some autumn color changes are better than other years, but the little house always has its blue door.

I believe it used to be a carriage house for a larger home that is gone now.

  2. so very, very lovely. I love blue doors, I love small tidy houses, I love square formats…. and of course, I absolutely love maple trees. They were my best loved feature when I lived in Canada for a short time.


    • There are bushes and steps, but there is also a curb and construction and other unattractive things that I wanted to hide. The little house is right across the street from the grocery store, so there’s always construction. I’m usually trying to find a creative way to make the mess disappear. It is a cute house, but I wouldn’t want to live there. Too much traffic from the parking lot (it’s a mini-mall) and noise. Horns, people yelling at each other, etc.

    • Mom…it’s the perfect house for a crazed serial killer who wants to hide in plain sight in the middle of a small town.
