thursday in the hood/the doors


Remember this house?
I took a photo of it in February and in May.
This is its summer face
turns out its not a privately owned home
its the HQ for the
Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America

  3. Hmmm. Why are they blowing so much money on flora? Aren't churches supposed to help people? Hopefully, one of the members of their church is donating this.

    I love that pic of your hero!

  6. Yes I do remember this house and the reason why the flowers are always so beautiful is that they fertilize them with WINDEX. Remember the movie Big Fat Greek Wedding and the Dad who solved every obstacle with Windex? I better start spraying my plants with Windex too:)

  10. the colors are beautiful
    I love the iron work in the top shot
    but to be honest I think the foliage is a bit much, a bit over the top

  12. It may be a bit over the top, but that is exactly what I like so much about it! It's just so...unexpected. And I think it's beautiful. The building itself is gorgeous, and that display adds to it!

    Good job, as usual! :)
