Friday Fences

According to the story Frederick Meijers built this house and the surrounding as a birthday present to his wife. He made it sure it is a replica of his wife's childhood house. How sweet of her husband right? You can find this house inside the Frederick Meijers Gardens and Sculpture Park, Grand Rapids Michigan

Is the Meijers of the grocery chain? We have several of them in Louisville. Does this house look out over water? The artchitecture just seems to have that in mind. And what a romantic gesture, Mr. Meijers! Your photos are so clean and crisp and capture those soft colors so well.
