Nix the Lawn 2

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!

I think it rocks, how about you?

What can I say about this?

Well, first, I said, “What the??”  Then, “Ha! It’s knitting!… No, wait – crochet? Hmmm.  Not sure.”

It reminds me of a child’s mobile of the solar system.  How fun is that?

Either way, how did they do this?  I bet it was a lot of work.  What a delight to come across along a public street!

I couldn’t NOT smile, so I smiled – a lot   🙂

It just happened to be there one day.  Then it was gone the next time I walked by.

Kudos to those folk for sharing their playful spirit with me.

I like it.
