The New, uh, Not So Red House!

I've been away from the blogosphere lately because... 
we finally moved into our new house!  

And here is your first peek at the new Red House (which is, sadly, not very red):

our new, not-so-red house
We ended up finishing a house that had already been partially built.  The exterior is vinyl, so it will stay its current green color.  Of course, we couldn't but add a nod to our past beloved red house..

behold, the red... door!
I might be rather busy for the next little while setting up our new house, but I will eventually be back in full force as I plan and create my new Red House garden!

Happy Gardening!

  3. Congrats! Perfect--a nod of red. We have red (well, burgundy) front doors, too, and I love that touch of whimsy. Don't work too hard with the unpacking; now you have plenty of time to settle in. Yay!

    1. Ha, I wish - I actually have to host a bridal shower in 2 weeks, so things are a little more chaotic than normal. It will get done though. I love red front doors - I think our house definitely needed it!

  4. Interesting that it's the same style of house. Must be a style that appeals to you and Mr. Redhouse. Since it was only partially built, was the siding already on it?

    1. Yeah, the siding was already on, so there was no way to change the color. At least it's a fairly pretty color! We put in a blue spruce tree to the side in the front (you can't see it in the picture), and the blue spruce needles match the house remarkably well!

  5. I LOVE it!! And what a great idea to have a red door - now you just have to change your blog name to Red Door Garden - ha ha!
    Take your time with the unpacking and getting settled. I'm sure it will all come together. I can hardly wait to see how the new garden develops. Best of luck!

  8. What a lovely big house, and how brilliant you got a red door! Can't wait to see what you are going to do with the garden, I guess it is pretty much a blank canvas apart from the trees in the background and the bushes in the front - a whole garden to do up, existing!

  12. Oh my, the house with a wee bitty of red is just superb. We are in the process of doing the same, well a much more humble abode .

  13. It's so perfect, like a dolls' house (well, bigger, obviously...). Can't wait to see what you do with the gardens.

  14. Indie - It's me again. I just found this wonderful book at the library. Perennials for Every Purpose by Larry Hodgson (2000). I like it because it covers not only the USDA Zones but the heat zones which is very important for me. It has a section on Cool Summer Climates (Boston?) and purports to cover more than a thousand perennials (they each get 2 pages). Being in a new garden zone, I think you'd find this book very helpful. Check your library!
