Found on Jackson Street

Wednesday afternoon I walked to a friend’s front porch where I was dropping something off. On the way back, I noticed this bright blue ballon and it’s red string, the green weed

I’d missed seeing the balloon the first time but there it was waiting for me on my way home.

Loved the colors.

Wonder what the story is.

TwinkleLights and Gate Guards in Millvale PA

Be sure to see Becky B’s Wavelight as she hosts the #JanuaryLight challenge

My post today is Twinklelights and two gate guards in Millvale PA. Wednesday night.

As these two stand guard at the gate, the twinklelights brighten the oncoming night.

A Patient St. Bernard

I’d parked and was walking to McWalker Yarns Sunday afternoon to knit. Took a quick snap. Then I turned back to try to get the face of this sweet and patient St Bernard waiting for his or her master.

 

Sidewalk Chalk on Tricycle Tires Abstract Art

Last week as I sat sipping a coffee, I watched some creative kids create some abstract art. One kid was driving the tricycle and the other facing backwards, held a thick sidewalk chalk to a rear tricycle tire as they raced in circles.

Here’s the resulting artwork!

hopefully you’ll get a better sense of their method with the photo’s cropped version 

June Gallery of Roses in Berlin

The first photo a rose bouquet I purchased from the Winterfeldplatz Market. The other roses seen while walking.

Rose season in full bloom.

At all stages of blossoming,  they are lovely to see.  When I went to find rose quotations to accompany the photos  there were over three hundred to choose from including the mention of thorns, of course.

 Decided on a single most well known quotation spoken by Juliet but I’m sure more thoughts on roses will come to your own mind.

(And on a side note Kiez Eis https://kiezeis.de/ on Winterfeld Strasse is featuring Rosewasser Ice Cream in addition to the rhubarb and asparagus flavors I’ve mentioned recently.)

“WHAT’S IN A NAME? THAT WHICH WE CALL A ROSE,  BY ANY OTHER NAME WOULD SMELL AS SWEET.”
