BLUE ON WOOD – Marilyn Armstrong

BLUE DOOR ON A HOUSE WITH A BRIGHT AUTUMN TREE

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.

  1. It’s a cute little house, but personally I don’t like the blue door. (Are there steps leading up to that door? Hopefully the bushes are merely hiding them; otherwise it might be a bit difficult getting in.)

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    1. It’s a wonderful tree and there aren’t a lot of maples around. The oaks shade the area too much and the maples need more sun, so they fade. But that one is beautiful although it is finally getting less full. I think the gypsy moth caterpillars did it a lot of damage.

  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.

    1. We don’t have nearly enough of them. The oaks make the woods too dark and maples need sunshine, so they grow best then not surrounded by other trees. They have the BEST autumn colors, too.
