:: My quirky neighbor ::


Warning: this post has lots of pictures

We all have one. The quirky neighbors. The one who stands out, and doesn't mind standing out one little bit, and basically gets away with it by playing the old age thing. They are: The little old couple who live a few doors down at the very end of the street. The street actually circles around their house and yard so you can see everything in it. I just love them. Their yard is as quirky as they are. I never tire of it. Every time I walk by there is something new, and in fact, if they spy me walking by they will come out and ask if I notice anything different. Now folks, this is not an easy question. There are so many things in her yard that you must be vigilant and alert at all times lest you miss something. Or, walk on something, or trip over something. Here is a little tour of her yard.... they actually went out of town, so I took my camera with me and snapped some shots. {Why am I whispering????}



Yes. This sign is posted on either side of her yard. Let's move on shall we?

Well, that concludes our little walk around the outside perimeters of their yard. What did you think? I think they are very talented, and fun. Some of my neighbors, don't think that so much. I guess to each his own right? Art. It's all in the eye of the beholder.
