The Front





This is the front of the house....above the tree fort in the 2nd photo is the road that comes into the place....you can see the tall Italian cypress in the first photo. You can see some of my flowers in these photos also.
This is why I always have so much yard work to do...mowing all the lawns on each side...keeping up with all the flowers...etc. BUT...I wouldn't trade any of it for ANYTHING!!!!! We are surrounded buy the forest of huge pine trees...have seen fox...coyote...bear....the most awesome birds...skunks...owls...deer...(lots of deer)....plus we have complete privacy...and peace and quiet! My Dad built this house in the early 60's....this is our FAMILY home....we moved here when I was a Freshman in High School.

And I have been there and will vouch for the great location of this huge and wonderful house. Not to mention the wonderful nature that surrounds it.

How cool is that Vicci...your family home. I lived in the same home from age 3 to going away to college...It hurt, when we had to sell it after my mom's passing.
I love everything about your house and yard...it gives me such a "happy feeling"
You do good work, girlfriend.

Vicci, this is like heaven on Earth, how beautiful it is.
All your hard work shows, it is so well kept.
I think I would find inspiration in your studio with views and surroundings like this...
Have a fantastic Mother's day,,,

I love the fact that your father was able to build this house & that it still remains in the family...
My mother-in-lawn went to Ireland last year with her Irish girlfriend. they stayed at her girlfriends family house in which her Mother, Father & brother still reside. It has been in their family since the 1600's!

& years ago when I bought my house, it was graffitti covered & PINK! I painted the exact same color as your house...I love it. I so wanna come trapse through your world!
