Why Don't You ...



... plant a tree smack dab in front of your door.  I can't tell you why I love this so much, but I do:



I can half tell you why I'm into this -- mainly that it's symmetrical, and thus balanced, but also profoundly weird.

The first image is the Villa Melzi on Lake Como, the second is of a lovely Russell Warren designed house a few blocks from where I live.

And no, not a Diana Vreeland dictate, but I say go for it.

Very interesting as long as one can enter the home!

Excited to see Vreeland's new movie.

I like the trees infront of the house too! It seems like they are protecting the house! I love tree!

I have a house behind my tree, too.

I like how the palm tree makes a crown for the Villa Melzi.

Thanks for commenting on Nick Haus! I look forward to seeing what you have to say. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking Anonymous comments -- too much spam, too much vituperative. Come out from behind the curtain, ye nasty Anonymous! Everyone else, please, I love to hear from you.
