How Many is Too Many?

How Many is Too Many?

Have you ever noticed that some things are just a little overdone? There seem to be a few too many sunflowers in front of the house in the photo above. 

This front yard seems to have a few too many decorations.

This commercial compound seems to be stockpiling firewood for the next few decades. The pile lines the majority of the fence about three feet wide, and reaches about eight feet in height!

I’d love to see photos from other bloggers that show things a little over the top or over done.

Summer Flowers

One of my favourite things about summer is the floral bounty found everywhere. Here are some samples for you to enjoy.flower beds
The city plants pots and beds overflowing with colour and scent.

Of course many homeowners make their neighbourhoods more beautiful with their  plantings.

Even some plants, considered weeds, can be quite pretty.

Too soon, the flowers will disappear and be replaced by the beauty of autumn.

March Walk

March Walk

During this time of social distancing, I’m glad that we can still enjoy a walk outdoors on a sunny day. Here are a few sights that induced a smile during the last days of March.
Above, a photo of an outdoor tableau. The small windmill was no more than four feet tall. I’m sure this spot looks great in the summer, surrounded by plants and flowers.

Usually, these Christmas decorations are gone by the end of March. Was someone trying to spread a little cheer during these concerning times?

A cute Little Library. This one was tiny, but full!

It’s too early for this garden to be planted, but the gardener seems to be anticipating a good crop of weeds!
