It is delightful to see the kindness of others. A while back I ran across a book sharing cupboard on the fence-line of a nearby garden. Take a book, leave a book, help yourself. Why not? I really like how that neighbor reached out to the community.
Since then, I’ve noticed a few more public offerings. The second book exchange was on a quiet side street. I couldn’t help but smile at the happy paint colors. Right on!
There was sign of graffiti past on the box, but happily that neighbor tidied that up & continued with the sharing.
And now I’ve happened upon another kiosk! It sits beside the pathway of a quiet city park. This one says “take what you need, Leave what you can”. Lots of folk travel the path – and plenty exercise dogs in the big open meadow. I’m so curious to know whether there is a turnover of goods or not. I’ll have to make sure I walk that way again in a couple of weeks to see. I have my fingers crossed that the parks department won’t remove it.
More & more often I’m seeing samples of front yards without the classic patch of grass. I’m glad some folks are brave enough to be different.
This property is on a very busy road, so I totally understand putting up a higher fence than usual. I like the funky heights & angles, and even the color choice. More than that, I like the effort to make the street side decorative.
And then it caught my eye…
What is going on with that stump with a door in it?
Check it out. This is a new twist on a public library!
