Wake Forest, It’s Like Living in the Beautiful Lush Tropics

On a recent drive around Wake Forest we stumbled by this cute house tucked away on a back street. The vegetation out front would fool you into thinking the picture was taken in the tropics. The plants reminded us of our time living overseas.

Certainly this homeowner should get a thousand points for landscaping creativity and a most unusual and inventive theme.

And then there is this picture. We are not sure which was planted first, the LTD or the tree growing out from underneath it. The car is buried up the back tires in dirt. It almost looks like the owner got stuck in 1982 and just left it there with the best of intentions to return, some day.
