Some people go far away from home to do their sightseeing.
We do sometimes, too.
But in-between we’re home and we like it there. We like to walk around our neighborhood (with the dog) and look at all the big and small things that are cute or amazing, and often unexpected.
I’ve captured a few of them to share with you through this blog.
the biiiiig, vine-covered tree
so many different shades of green
old-old Maple with rough "skin"
the creeping pine, fighting with the weeds
the (duck) pond, only 7 blocks from our house, right within the city
... comes complete with cattails and dragonflies
climbing vine and old-fashioned rose bush
tree swing beckoning
a web of small irrigation streams provides little boys with lots of critters to watch
sneaking creeper ... or creeping sneaker?
still standing: the V-tree
a shortsighted rock-head
a delightful Koi pond
a mailbox gone "green"
the smiling guardian lion
the swan couple
the gargoyle, guardian of this doorstep
dry weeds on a kempt-lawn-background, with lonesome hoop
time to head home...
Thank you for having followed us around on our neighborhood sightseeing tour!
