The Flavel House garden is absolutely gorgeous this year with azaleas, rhododendrons, irises, and other flowers I can't name. For those unfamiliar with the location, the houses you see here are private homes on the other side of Exchange Street. The gables on these Victorian homes look unusual to me. They make me think of farm houses from the Midwest. If anyone can tell me more about the style, I'd be interested.
If you liked Monday's post about the whaling ship Tom & Al that had a number of interesting careers, check back and see the five new links at the end contributed by Midnight Mike. They show the ship in use as a whaler and also as the pilot boat Columbia. Nice photos. Mike also made some interesting comments about the people he knew who were involved in whaling. Have you ever had a whale burger?
