A couple of towns on the "rails to trails" around us saved the old street lights when they were updated about 20 years ago. Each one has a plaque, so there must have been a good deal of fund-raising to get them installed on the path. Makes for pleasant strolling or biking as dusk turns to dark...

There is also a pink margarita lamp that I have not seen.


What's the foreign receptacle doing there on the wall? That looks like the ones we had in Australia in both the socket configuration and the little 0n-Off switches.

That surprised me, given that there are two in California, two others relatively close to that one as well as Carlsbad Caverns further south in New Mexico as well as the Grand Canyon in between.

The other front yard art I have been passing. I got out of the car to take the photo and only then realized it was a mosaic.

This is located in the front yard of a rental house at a very busy intersection.

So pretty, WTG.

Yesterday this tree--which is was loaded with berries--was standing upright. Today the berries are gone and the tree is not upright. I think my friend Smokey is around.

Yeow. Unfortunately she did not take the recommended like of action for a black bear attack (it's different for brown bears): don't run! (They can run faster than humans and climb faster than humans, and it may just excite them). Up here they recommend making one's presence as big as possible, to stand very tall, wave one's hands high, and if the bear actually attacts to fight back as aggressively as one can.

I've been seeing them around since I moved here. Saw one crossing the road ahead of me over in Rumney a few weeks ago.

Had one at the bottom of the porch steps which I didn't know was there until I looked up from my spinning. I caught this pic of him/her after it had meandered to the edge of the lawn:


FYI, for those who followed this on FB: The bird feeders were put away a few months ago. Just the hummingbird feeder left and the bears haven't discovered it, and I hope it stays that way.

Pretty exciting and beautiful!

While I still have my internet handle, BeeLady, I no longer have my hives in the front yard due to a lovely Mama bear and her cub who visited us a few too many times...They visited all the neighbors as well, an orchard, a barn with molasses horse feed... Razzer

Hey ron, what brand is the popper? Does it work well? Some of them seem to have a pretty flimsy stirring mechanism that jams or falls apart...been looking for something to replace my glass microwave popcorn popper from Germany. It really isn't very practical and is more of a collector's piece.

My compost pile after deadheading daylilies...



I try to put as many flowers in the compost to create good compost karma.
