Home Sweet Home in Paradise

Paradise? It looks that way! We spent so much time wondering about the rooms, space, and appliances inside our home that we may have forgotten how amazing the outside of our dream home it! While it likely broke some rules, I spent a great couple of hours with the sweet elderly woman, Barbara, we're buying our home from--without the realtors! (It was nice to visit without them there for a change.) Here are some pictures I took on my tour of the outside (I just hope Barbara doesn't mind that I've already forgotten many of the plants' names!)

Here are the pictures:
