It's not easy, bein' Greene

Recently, Husband attended a local conference and got a spiffy tour of local Greene & Greene homes as part of the bargain. There's a block near old town Pasadena that's chock full of these architectural wonders. I had to work on the original tour date, but in an show of why he's the best husband I've ever had, Mateo took me on his personal tour the very next day.
And we took pictures! Of garages!
Seriously, though. Have you ever seen a garage look this good?

A random Greene and Greene patio.

At the Gamble House

Husband in the Garden of Eden.
I cropped the snake out of the picture.

Anyone know what these are? I mean, besides 'fantastic'?

Gamble House front door.

Mateo's a great tour giver (I'm ever-so-slightly biased). The whole experience was chock fulla planty Arts & Crafts architecture, which just mekes me feel quite peaceful. I really needed some peaceful. Thanks, husband!

Got a haircut. Kinda looks skunky,
Please ignore the shifty eyes.

Random Fruit Fact: The Trazel

"Very tasty...The seed makes an excellent dessert nut, tasting just like the cob and filbert."

Tune in next week and find out what the hell "the cob and filbert" taste like! Learn a little bit about the trazel (but not much), here.

    ok - you can't quote me on this but i think those "flowers" are amarynthus or something like that... I recognize them a bit because my mom thought it would be funny to use them in my bouquet for my wedding because they are so phallic.... :) and the phallus just rests in the middle of a red heart.. it's great. :) very symbolic... ;)

    Most excelent hair!

    So, he's a honey for touring you. But then you e-tour us... Are you flirting with the internet?

    Every time I see stuff like that, it makes me want to go back to school for architecture.
