Shakespeare in the Park with my pal. Twelfth Night. We brought a picnic and drank honey wine, and it was lovely.
More of these guys in West Lafayette. This one is my favorite...
My balcony garden--ONE tomato plant. I've meant to grow lots of veg and herbs every year since I've lived in this place (seven). I'm going to do more next summer. Really!
A coffee shop I frequent. I'm not a huge coffee drinker--it has to be of the froo-froo variety; meaning, about 4 or 5 parts chocolate milk or whatever to 1 part coffee. The point of going here is really the nice furniture and whatever book I'm reading at the time. Oh! Also, this place sells Maine Root Beer! I had it for the first time in 2012 with my friend Heidi who lives in Maine. I couldn't believe it when I saw it here in my small Indiana town! The owner shopped the internet looking for a good organic, fair trade root beer, and this one fit the bill. She feels so strongly about having it in her shop that she sells it barely over cost. Every time I see the bottles lined up on the counter, I think of my friend and our visit.
Rainbow at Purdue University.
This one seemed a little plain compared to the others, but it does sit on a corner in front of the public library and across from a Panda Express. So...fair enough, I guess.
I do like that they painted over old telephone books and such, so being out in the elements makes them all weathered and cool.
Solicited or unsolicited, I know not, but here's some smarty-pants graffiti in the back of the library.
This one was done by an artist with whom I'm familiar and whose work I love very much, Zach Medler. I should do a whole post on his stuff.
Yes, in fact, that does read, "Poultry in Motion." Thanks for asking.
I loved this movie, Mr. Holmes, so much. I'll not likely ever get my photo taken with Sir Ian, so here I am with a cardboard display of his "graven image." It made perfect sense at the time.
