DAY 156 - Mediterranean House

This is one of the most gorgeous older homes in the area. It's a Mediterannean/Spanish style house with lovely grounds. In fact, the grounds are open to the public year round. I thought the color of the ribbons on the iron fence was odd though, it's a bronzy orange rather than the traditional red.

In the fall, the owners and their helpers plant thousands of tulip and daffodil bulbs for spring bloom. Then, get this -- after they've bloomed in the spring, they dig all those bulbs out and put them out of the sidewalks in bushel baskets for people to take, free! I've never timed it right to get some.
