Most of the buildings in Aspen are new and expensively opulent, with occasional older Victorian-style houses or mansions that look as if they have been extensively remodeled. They have gardens to match: one often sees groups of gardeners working to groom the shrubs and flowers.
A few older and more modest homes still stand here and there. I noticed today this house, painted the same shade of pink as the tree that was blooming in its modest yard. Another similar one stands next to it, painted a pale yellow; I wonder if that matches the fall colors of an aspen tree in its yard.
