A house made for climbing roses

by Susan Harris on June 2, 2011

Spotted in Washington, near the National Cathedral.  The perfect cottagey look of this humongous but tasteful home caused me to stop the car and snap this shot – actually two shots, stitched (badly) together.   I bet the back garden is just as nice.

Wow, gorgeous. I can see why you stopped. Very European.

This house is way toooo cute! I bet the garden is very beautiful. We just put our garden in here is a post about it
I was thinking of going smaller but my hubby wanted to go all out. So we did. Yeah. It is a lot of work and we water it by irrigation so we have a hard time keeping the weeds out.

That is a beautiful house. I’m not big on roses, but I really like this idea.

Just reminds me of a little cottage in the Cotswolds. Love the eaves with the rounded edges – and of course the garden.

Also spotted in Washington near the National Cathedral is one of my favorite gardens – Dunbarton Oaks. Once a private home, now a gift to all of us, I just love going there. So peaceful and pretty. Even out-of-season when nothing much is in bloom, Dunbarton Oaks is filled with character.
