An Easter Colored Project, Just in time for Easter...

You regular readers will remember that we did a piece on some new housing next to Monglaralto, that will enable a lot of the less well off people to realize a dream of having their own home and a plot of land for a garden...Most of these young couples have been living in spare bedrooms or add-owns in their family's homes.

As you look at the following pictures, you will see that the weeds are kind of high and that the places do not look "lived in", and that's because they are not...yet.  The project is still short of electricity and water to the homes, so most of the new owners have had to be content to try to personalize the places as best they can before moving in.  You can bet, that if they had water, there would be wonderful looking gardens all around--so far, all they can do is fence them in...In fact, as I drove through the 290 home project yesterday, I did not see one person, a parked car, or a line of laundry--some of the windows have shades on them where the new owners might have some much needed privacy, once in awhile...

I guess that the owners were presented with a paint sample chart, and allowed to choose the color for their new home.  As you can see, pastels have trumped "earth tones"...

 

 

 

 

 

    

 

 

       

Well, I tried to give you all a sample of what we see when we drive past, but I have to say that the human eye connected to the human brain is still far better at processing information, than these fancy digital cameras with their built in chips...plus...it's also probably the fault of the nut behind the wheel...

What you really see as you drive past is a wonderful display of pastel homes--sort of like big square Easter eggs in a huge Easter basket

But...you get the idea...

 

It gives me a good feeling to look over at this project and see vibrant colors and hope...
