Doors of the Luther Burbank House & Gardens

Last week, I posted some photos of the Luther Burbank House and gardens but I was in a bit of a rush to get the post up so I left some photos on the “cutting room floor”.  This post is an addendum to last week’s post and adds a bonus find, a small alleyway called Art Alley.

I posted the Greenhouse last week but when I peered in there were no plants; only a couple of doors (one was a gate) at the other end.

The exterior section of the greenhouse where those doors were located was constructed in brick which faced a courtyard that was closed to visitors.

This door was locked and opened to the garden along the wall.

I peered over the wall to capture a shot of the door of the house which reflected the brick section of the greenhouse.

Walking past the greenhouse, I found the front door to the house but I guess they kept it locked; only a lit Tiffany lamp in the window seemed to beckon a welcome sign.

Went around back and found the back doors and windows.

Further out back were some arbors and another garden.

Finally, heading out to locate my car I passed the Carriage House that doubled as a souvenir shop and information room.

We went back to the small alleyway that we drove past when trying to find the LB house and found that it was named Art Alley.  Seems like the residents might be artists and some works of art could be found on walls and facades of buildings or homes.  I think there was a roll up garage door that happened to be in my shot of the street sign.

Two iconic artists staring at us as we drove by.

A corrugated art panel and a hidden patio door.

And the last wall painting before we headed home.
