Hidden Plainfield: A Plainfield Arboretum


This home's specimen plantings lend it the air of an arboretum.

I like to think of today's Hidden Plainfield home as a sort of Plainfield Arboretum.

It sits on a busy corner and is filled to overflowing with specimen trees, shrubs and myriad annual flower plantings. No matter the time of year, it is always an interesting and arresting site.

The home itself is late Victorian, with a picturesque turret, and is well maintained. But it is the grounds which make this home a standout. Yet for all the lushness of the plantings, I have never seen anyone working on the shrubs or floral plantings.

Do you know where today's property is?

Answer tomorrow.

I know! I know! It's the place I'm often photographing at the corner of Richmond and East Front. A few years back, I met the woman who lived there. When I showed her her flowers on my digital camera, she beamed.

Hey Dan, if correct this property is on the corner of Richmond and Front Street. They do a wonderful job with the flowers and during holidays.

Dan I love this house on east front street. The yard and porch flowers always look great.

I love to look at the grounds of this house although it does have a lot of landscape on such a small lot.

There are actually 3 if not 4 of this identical house all in a row surrounding the corner. Now that's worth being a cookie cutter home :-)
