Yellow House

This lovely house is set in a large yard with lots of trees, shrubs and mowed lawns.  It used to be a Bed and Breakfast - I noticed this year that the sign was gone.  It sits among fields where the Trumpeter Swans visit every year and was named the Trumpeter Swan Bed and Breakfast.

 Trees and shrubs blowing in the wind - just a touch of autumn colors beginning to show
 Turrets - perfect for daydreaming among the tree tops
 A quiet, warm autumn afternoon in later October - rare for us this time of the year

When we have travelled through the US and Canada in the past we have always admired these wonderful wooden houses painted in such lovely colours. This one is superb.

The homeowner picked the perfect shade of yellow for this house!

What a lovely house. You have captured some wonderful reflections in the windows. Quite eerie!

Absolutely charming! My favorite house in my childhood neighborhood was a yellow one with white trim. There were always red geraniums in the window boxes. It didn't have the "magical" turret that this house has though! - or the sweet picket fence and gate!

That's such a lovely painted house. Old-fashioned and homey looking.

What a beautiful house. I think a Queen Anne Victorian? I love the turrets, and the sunny color yellow!

Such a beautiful house! Love seeing all the different views. My favourite is the first one, with the reflection in the windows.

Oh, what a beautiful house! I especially love the glass and the reflection in the first shot. I have a friend who loves yellow houses. I think of her every time I see a particularly sweet one. This is such a gorgeous place!

I like a colorful house. Yellow would be a good choice for me. - Margy

I love the yellow color and the turret. I think the turret gives this lovely house a wonderful personality. Quaint, but timeless in it's beauty. I always wanted a house like this one. When I was in my early twenties a home not far from where we lived came onto the market for only 27,000 dollars. I wanted that house so bad, but hubby said it would be way to much work to maintain it. Even now nearly fifty years later I am still really ticked at him over that.
