Frontyard blitz

On Alice Street:


And Michael-style landscape design at "Bloody Mary" on Flora Street:



And on Reiby Street:

How good is that letterbox! It's a hollowed-out computer tower with those special plastic strips to keep out flies.

And on the subject of great letterboxes, I think I am prepared to declare this one, on Angel Street, my all-time favourite:

Is that a lemur?

Karen - It's funny you say "he" because in my mind it's a "she" behind that landscaping. Don't know why.

Michael: If you mean on the letterbox, I believe it's a polar bear. But thank you for making me think of lemurs. I love them. Aye aye.

Have you ever strolled past Michael Landscaper designer last at night? There is a gorgeous plant that has flowers that only open at Midnight.

I walk past that place on angel street every day
The people who live there are as colourful as their letter box.
I saw a girl with short blonde hair walk out the front door in what looked like a mini-skirted bridal outfit with a veil & white sneakers... get on her bicycle, and ride away down the street.

Also peeking in their front windows (well, the curtains were open and I happened to look that way) there seems to be red writing of some sort on the walls.
