Roses were easy for the early settlers to grow. It seems there is always roses
that line the front fence, and a rose garden to the side of the house.
Old houses have multiple porches. I love the big old front and side porches.
Love this house with the unique architecture
The front steps and porch or situated at an angle. I also love the
front boy windows.
Sandstone brick. . .remember this is red rock country.
Notice the colored spindles on the porch.
There were lots of trees planted to cool the homes from the
hot desert summers in Southern Utah.
Tree lined streets and large grassy areas. I can picture a lot of
picnics and family and friend gathers on the large lots.
Beautiful homes of the long ago past. Well preserved and some restored
to their original beauty. My imagination can go wild in picturing what it must
have been like for the people living here. I know life was not easy, seldom is it even now
but no matter the day or the time or the century we live in we can cherish
and be thankful for our wood and stone houses that we call home
Home Sweet Home.
