There is a lot of council (social) housing in Belfast - most of it very plainly designed. Now that a lot of this housing has been sold off to residents, many people have decided to make their homes look more individual. The three door numbers are an unusual touch - I guess the owners had difficulty on deciding on a favourite, so decided to have them all!

I like the white plastic trellis on the walls, yet there is nowhere to pot up any plants to grow through them.

Although it's pretty bad, I have actually seen tackier around Belfast. Mr J. Adair's former residence in lower Shankill estate was one prime example.

This all makes you think about the owners and their individualities. I like it.

An interedting photo. I like your narrative too and I also like the house.

I have celebrated this day, Mother's Day in my country, with a magazine cover for my wife. I hope you can see it.

Great transformation, but after all that decorative work, have they sealed off their letter box? Lol. I bet each ornament and house number etc is from a special friend or relative... Sweet!
