To enclose this porch, someone has welded together some rings and random architectural iron. The centerpiece (the “solid” piece) is a fireplace cover that you see often in New Orleans. The owner must think highly of the work, as it is the only thing he or she has prevented being covered in green. This takes some work. I’m sure it would only take a few weeks for some aggressive weed to cover this porch like “The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill”. I don’t care what this place looks like inside; I think I would like to live here more than just about anywhere else in New Orleans. I have no recollection of the location of this home-maybe riverside of St. Charles, possibly near Nashville Ave.

Look how LUSH it is!
