Neglected Beauty

This old house sits along a busy thoroughfare in a town near me and in its heyday must have been pretty impressive. This was yet another stop on my snowstorm hike and the beauty of the snow on the old wrought iron fence caught my eye. I do not think it is occupied during the winter and the owners have not made any effort to stop the deterioration of the gorgeous wrap around porch that is a work of art unto itself. Seems some people have no clue and being lazy is something they are quite content with. Such a shame it is not in the hands of a family that would respect the work that was put into it.
