He built a crooked house ...

It's not as apparent in this photo (unless you click to expand it to full size) as it was from glancing at the house from across the street: This old house hasn't got many plumb lines left in it. I'd love to see the inside. I'll bet there isn't a single room with a square corner in it.

The Green Man says 'Hello!'

Detail from the mural on the wall of the former Mifflin St Co-op. In a row of sprouting seedlings, this one's got a face and reaches out to catch ... the sun? An unsuspecting victim? Could be a triffid, you can't tell.

RIP Mifflin St Co-Op

Detail from the mural painted on the wall of the building that used to be home to the Mifflin Street Co-Op.

Hey! I suffer from that, too!

Mural on the wall of Mother Fools coffee house

In commemoration of Mother's Day?

I wanted to snap a photo of it before it got covered up in that tangled block letter crap that passes for grafitti.

I love lilacs.

I was lucky enough to buy a house with a yard full of lilacs.

Not only that, but Barb, my neighbor to the north has lilacs planted all along the lot line. Jim, my neighbor to the south, has a couple smaller lilacs.

Right now, walking into my back yard is like walking into the perfume aisle at Penny's.

This is what happens when I don't mow as often as I should

Why is it so many home owners don't like dandelions? What's not to like about them? They have a beautiful, brilliant flower, they grow everywhere without a lot of fuss, and when they go to seed you get to make a wish. Say no to ChemLawn. Leave the dandilions alone.
