Inspired by Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #58: Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue
My entry for this week’s challenge dates back to 1980…
…when thanks to a first-time homeowners federal loan program…we were able to borrow 95% of the dollars needed to purchase our first home…
A new four room cape on a half acre lot. Simple and small. Two bedrooms. Living room. Kitchen. One bathroom. Full basement. Unfinished attic.
With my father-in-law’s help we planted new shrubbery. Those tiny rhododendrons eventually reached the windows.
We chose Potomac Blue for the color…which changed 6 years later to Barn Red…and 5 years later to We-Are-Tired-of-Painting white vinyl siding.
What was this land before the builder covered it with houses?
Old farm land.
