Twickenham Encore


Two years ago I stumbled upon the historic neighborhood of Twickenham in Huntsville  - Alabama's largest collection of  antebellum houses and home to incredible gardens.  Back last week again for work, I made a point of visiting some of the streets I didn't see in 2013.   Many of these garden shots are from rambling down the most idyllic lane (Bannister's Alley) where I felt like I was a part of a  magical movie set but all the better, as it's real.   I know that sounds corny but the experience was a joy.

A basket of flowers on the fence - a great idea.









 A home in the midst of remodeling/construction - absolutely no McCrapshions in this neighborhood.



For the historic homes I saw in 2013 head here and here for more incredible gardens - all pinterest worthy!

With a canopy of tree's and lush foliage around it all, you just couldn't imagine anyone building anything else. It's really timeless and lovely.
