Seating For Garden Gnomes

Seen along the sidewalk on my walk home from the store. It’s been raining so much there are mushrooms growing on everyone’s mulch, but these look so new and fresh, almost fake. Hope the garden gnomes enjoy their party tonight!

Riding Into Spring

Whatever has wheels goes!

I can tell spring is here and it’s been a long winter. My neighbor’s son and his BFF are riding everything with wheels down the street past our houses—and we live at the bottom of a steep hill, so that’s especially exciting. Here he’s riding his rocking horse—with wheels! And below, I caught him texting while…well, his feet were on the ground so he wasn’t moving yet, but I think he tried to video one of the rides!

Texting while...

Texting while…

And this is all I caught of the second guy. He was brave enough to start farther up the hill and was going far to fast for me to track as he went by! It’s so good to see kids play—at their age I was doing the same thing on our hill, including roller skates that strapped onto my shoes! Happy Spring!

Just a blur.

Azaleas

Of course, everything is blooming, and my neighbor has the most spectacular collection of colorful azaleas—six all together, from nearly white to standard pink to violet, and these two, the crimson, above, which is just as astonishing as it looks as you go down the street, and the apricot, below. The others had already finished blooming but these were just about in their prime.

Labor Day, 2010

Labor Day

My neighbor’s side porch on Labor Day. There was just something gently beautiful about this scene as I walked through the neighborhood.


Three Stepped Leaves

Three Stepped Leaves

Morning glories are twining on the cast-iron fence around my neighbor’s back yard. Even though colors are bright on a sunny summer day they often overwhelm the textures: the veins in the leaves, the rust on the fence, grooves in the downspout and even the muted long shadows of the other section of the cast-iron fence and the fence itself in the background.


Porches

Evening Porches

My neighbor’s porches line up down the hill in the yellow sunlight of a spring evening, each different, each much the same, welcoming home.
