Once a year our downtown streets are transformed in a open air art exhibit. Here are my favorites for 2011.

Can you believe she's made of chalk?

This one was my favorite. I told the artist it was the best of the show! He was happy to hear it. :-)

My wife and I went for a casual walking tour today in Houston Heights. I must have hit the jackpot. At every turn there was another beautifully maintained bungalow from the 1920s and 1930s. Don't you just love bungalows? I do. I live in one. David :-)/ Houston Texas
Wine red door with steel gray tones. Nice!

Immaculately kept bungalow of  blue-gray with white trim.

Another beautiful grayish tone with white and blue gray trim. Isn't that a nice porch?

A beautiful cottage garden surrounds this pale green bungalow. Large cypress trees give it a cozy feel.

The brick circle drive is a nice touch on this one. The color is subtle and beautiful...a greenish gray tone.

Another fine bungalow with a historic shade of gray. The windows and eave supports add charm.

A nice color for the historic district. Any seasonal decorations would go with this.

I'll end with this pocket garden filled with blooms in November. Many of the new homes are two story, but try to carefully match the historic style. This is a great gardener. A tip of the trowel to you and your garden!
