If we were to pick a Greensboro house of the week, determined by curb appeal, this week's pick just might be 804 North Elm Street. This 985 square foot house, built back in 1924, is a prime example of what a great paint job and good landscaping can do to enhance a property. The pink trim matches the pink dogwoods perfectly. From this angle, you can't see it, but a 3' handmade (of vine) bird's-nest planter sits to the right of the entranceway, just waiting for a giant arrangement of pink and white impatiens. Below, you will see 3 close-ups of plantings and architectural details. The vine trailing along the roof of the porch has a string of lights that must be lovely at dusk.
If you are fretting getting your taxes finished by tomorrow, and need a quick pick-me-up, head to this house, just down the street from Deep Roots Co-op, in Fisher Park; step back, breathe in the beauty, breathe out the stress, and realize that tax season, too, shall pass! By the way, it's not too late to get some plants in the ground and bring beauty into your own life. If you don't have any more room for plants in your own yard, consider treating a young couple in your life to a tree. Happy Tuesday!
