This ornate column, beautiful even in its state of decline, graces the doorway of a lovely Old Town home. It is over 100 years old and will be replaced by a new column which replicates every detail. Homeowners of historic Old Town homes are bound by the Board of Architectural Review to maintain the integrity of the architectural style.

A charming entry to an Old Town residence.


Behind the Red Door

Old Town’s secrets are guarded by beautiful doorways.


Purple Haze

This makes me miss gardening. A few pots on the balcony just doesn’t compare.


The Dazzling Ladies of Market Square

I only wish the beauty of the bearded iris would last longer. A week to ten days just isn’t enough!


The Tourists Are Coming! The Tourists Are Coming!

The weather is warming up a bit, and a sure sign of it is the return of the red-coated tourists to Old Town.


Art at the Market

April 21, 2007

Art on the street makes me think of Paris, where you’ll see it for sale every day in little booths along the Seine and of course in the Place du Tertre. In Alexandria we see art on the street only on special occasions: one of them is the annual Arts Festival in September, the other is the Saturday Farmer’s Market in Market Square, which is where this photo was taken.
