May Theme Day - Squares - Anne Spencer House - IV

(click on photos to enlarge)

This is the front porch of Anne Spencer's house. I love the checkerboard tile! And of course it fits right in for City Daily Photo's theme this month, so yeah...and here's more squares:

Isn't this gate precious and I just adore the color of paint...it's such a magical garden!

And now meet our gracious hostess:
This is Shaun Spencer-Hester. She is Anne Spencer's granddaughter and takes care of things. We were so fortunate to get the chance to talk to her and she is just one of those people that you can talk to for hours! If you have any questions about the house/garden/community you can click "contact us" on the website and she is the one that will answer all your questions. If you haven't checked out the website yet I encourage you to do so because not only is there interesting info on Anne Spencer and her history, but also histories of the neighborhood as well. Very fascinating stuff!

  15. Was going through the previous posts as well. For a poet, Anne Spencer seems to have been quite a 'square' :) And I really liked the poem that's on the website. Thank you!
