That's not where I was going with today's blog though. What struck me while I was walking apart from how lucky I am to live in the best area in our city was how fantastic people are at making their homes individual and welcoming. The weather is beautiful today and all the flowers in bloom would make anywhere look good, but East Belfast is lovely, tree lined avenues, every road holding 4 or 5 different types of house, Victorian villas, white walled cottages , grand 4 storey terraces and sleek modern palaces.
I was very naughty and took a few snaps of some of the lovely details people had added to their little castles.
Aren't they lovely? I love the oil tank in particular! I was very fortunate I didn't get caught!
If you know anyone who hates ironing in East Belfast or Holywood send them my way!
