I particularly enjoy the hard horizontal line of the edge of the roof, occasionally broken as an awning extends forward; the vibrant blue of the stucco; how the grey of the roof matches the windows in shadow; and, of course, the grid of thoughtfully-placed lawn ornaments, almost as though a tiny little cemetery had been built into the front yard & each grave marked by a fake Canada goose or potted plant.
Behind the jump, a gem of a find…:Directly across the street from the RVFYOTD above was a small, low-slung white house with an un-fenced side yard bursting with fruit trees just beginning to blossom, and camellias like this one in the full flush of blooming.
Even in the dry, flat, hellish furnace that is Van Nuys/North Hollywood, this little strip of verdant garden lowered my blood pressure–and the ambient temperature–by about 15 points.
