… you’re in South Berzerkeley! This shot is of just part of a mural that’s been featured several times already in these pages: e.g. here, here, and here! (One day I’ll have to try to get a picture of the whole thing!)
What can a person say about such a beautiful cloud — except to wish she could read what it says!? (See previous installment of cloud writing here.)
… honest weight. A (mostly unused, I think?) fixture outside the Berkeley Bowl … plus: reflection of all kinds of melons and … faint reflection of the photographer!
Who’re you going to call? Emergency Circus (http://www.emergencycircus.com/)!
And to think that I saw it on Harper St … 🙂
Half a pink planet–with supporting greenery–against a cement wall. When this picture was taken, the sky was about the color of the upper part of the wall; it’s been like that for days! Thank goodness for this globe of pink!
Not a Boomerang recommendation: the yellows on these bottles sitting right next to each other just caught my eye (fun images too!). The wine actually selected for purchase was a provencal rosé (mais oui!).
Even though this is a black and white photo and I’ve never been to Sibley Iowa, I get summer (early summer) warmth and rose and grass fragrances when I look at it. Also: what a happy and good-looking bunch! That’s Craven on the left and Frank (one of the Rust kids’ grandfathers) on the right and Will and Blanche [Nanny] Shuttleworth in the middle. Maybe around 1930? Blanche and Will look around the same age as they look in a more formal family portrait taken in 1932 (scroll all the way down to the bottom of this page here). While I’m at it, find a picture of Will and Blanche on their wedding day in 1896 here. July 1, 2015 Update from Nancy: This picture must have been taken before 1925 because “there are no babies!” (or brides!).
Add to this excitement the fun of imagining what actually being in Dublin today must be like for two loyal readers of this blog — it even looks like a sunny day! Can’t wait to hear all about it on their return.
Otherwise … over to you, SCOTUS!
Such a variety of plant communities for one delapidating stairway! Below find a close-up of one of them …
Three empty pots surrounded by an abundance of sour grass, also known as oxalis. This article here has all kinds of information about this species and is mainly focused on getting rid of it in your garden. We don’t mind it at all though!
