Just Another Walk In The Burbs

 

Rusty Old Fence With Day Lilies. I like day lilies because they stay in bloom so long. None of that twee, Japanese-cherry-blossom beauty-is-fleeting-and-gone-oh-so-soon crap. We're gonna be here all summer.



A Little Free Library. Nice to see Beatrix Potter there, and not Harry Potter.


And a nice, uncarved beech tree for Sixty Grit.

Mostly paperbacks which is almost always what I see in little libraries around the country. However, in our townhouse complex, w/ mostly old farts, it's predominantly hardcovers.

And, lots of nonfiction.

My eyesight isn't what it once was - I read that one title as "The Red Scare Girl". Man, that takes me back...

Can you get a clear picture of the leaves of those gray barked trees? Just and old tree guy asking...

Mumpsimus said...

Yeah, I made exactly the same mis-reading myself, at first. A history of the McCarthy hearings for sixth-graders?

I'll get a leaf picture in the next couple of days, and add it to this post.

How about "Curious George Gets Ebola" - that is a fairly rare book. Or "The Man in the Yellow Scare Hat is Held for Ransom" - you know, healthy, realistic portrayals of the life of a chimp.

Fleeting spring blossoms.
We had such a nice cool wet May. Now it's hell fire and death. 100 today. yick.
I cannot complain for me - I'll manage. I feel bad for horses and cows who do not have access to shade. I feel bad for any creature - or delicate flower - forced into it.

Day lilies are nice.

Speaking of Beatrix Potter - for fun I recommend "Peter Rabbit" the movie. It's hilarious.

I like day lilies too ... very working class.

"Mango Delight" by "Hyman"? Sounds vaguely erotic.

I like to drop an occasional copy of Hayek, Sowell, Kevin Williamson, or Jonah Goldberg into the the Madison little free libraries and think of it like a time-bomb with some liberal's head soon exploding.
