I guess that, technically, this is graffiti, but I think it is a cute example of street art that takes something ordinary, like a tiny weed, and turns it into something whimsical. Can you see ordinary things like weeds and get the inspiration to create something like this mouse watering a weed, as if it is her houseplant? I think it is so clever! And I don’t have near the talent to even draw something like this, much less come up with the idea in the first place!
I wonder if the government would get all upset if little drawings like this started showing up on the street curbs. I really think most people would enjoy them, but I bet there would be some jerk who thinks it is destruction of public property or some other stupid crime. And some people do not appreciate art at all – they like things plain, sterile and ordinary. I’m so glad that I am not one of those types!
I have a garden that I planted this year. It’s in the only spot of my whole yard that gets enough sun to grow anything. My neighbor lady is mad at me for planting the garden there – she says that I should have put it in my back yard instead of the side yard, because “no one wants to look at that!” I have to tell you – I was actually offended that she told me that. I don’t see anything wrong with having a small vegetable garden in the side yard, and there are so many trees in my back yard that nothing will grow back there – not even grass!
For the past several mornings when I go to check the garden and water it, I have found one of the bean plants broken off and ruined. I suspect that some kind of critter is getting into my garden at night and braking off the bean plants. We have skunks, foxes, rabbits, raccoons and deer in my neighborhood. Do you think any of them are interested in beans?
I have no idea what kind of critter it would be – and I sure hope that it is not my neighbor doing it to spite me!
This is a picture of horses that really caught my attention. I have always loved horses and have ridden since I was only 4 years old. I have always wanted to go out west and watch wild horses running free across the plains. That is something on my bucket list that I intend to do within the next year.
Tomorrow is a special day that is not advertised very much but people who care will keep track and know when it comes. Tomorrow is free fishing day – when anyone can go fishing on any public water in the state of Tennessee and they do not need a fishing license.
I like to go fishing but I don’t think that spending $20 on a fishing license makes much sense if I am only going to use it once or twice over the year. Especially since I don’t even keep the fish and eat them – I believe in catch and release. So the fishing license and the parking fee charged at all the public lake access areas makes fishing awfully expensive for just a couple of hours standing on the banks holding a fishing pole.
What did the people do back in the old days before there was Deep Woods Off? That stuff is like magic and it keeps all the biting bugs away. I can’t imagine 100 years ago having to be outside and dealing with biting flies and mosquitoes with no way to stop them. Ugh – mosquito bites are awful, and I’ve been bit by black flies, green flies and horse flies before. But now I use Deep Woods Off before heading out – what a difference that makes!
