We live an area which is not far from a lake which has many “Lake Houses” Most of them were built in the 20’s and 30’s and it seemed people at that time had an affinity for naming their summer beach houses.
My house has always been called The Jackman House after the first owner but I never really liked the name so we changed it to Garden House, after we dug up all the grass in the front and planted flowers 10 years ago. If I am describing where I live to someone, I just say the house with all the flowers in front and they know exactly where I live!
I took this picture on June 16th, 2012 with my Canon Rebel. While going through my pics of the gardens I realized I took very few pictures of the peonies [probably too busy gardening in June] But aren’t they gorgeous? I like them in every stage of bloom even these in tight bud.
