I found this postcard at an antique store last weekend. I was totally enamored by the simplicity of this landscape...bright white walks, crisp green lawn, stately white house.
Yes, I know, it's totally empty (and devoid of energetic plant life). But, after grading tons of complex landscape designs this past couple of weeks I think my eyes enjoyed the relief.
For those interested, this is an image of a house in Story City, Iowa in the 1920s.
