I went out after lunch, with my camera, hoping to catch the sunshine peeping through.
I wanted another picture of the willow's bronze leaves, especially with the half circle of ground underneath covered with the fallen leaves.
Well, the tree is bronze, but there is no sunshine and the Canada geese have pretty much scarfed down the leaves.
Unless the deer have been at them. The geese were just there to blame.
Just to compare, a couple of days ago. Nothing like sunshine.
It was a grey day in town, too. I had the pick of the street for parking.
I've wanted a picture of this bicycle, although preferably on a bright, bright, sunshiny day.
However, I could not beat the parking, so I parked.
There is a new shop in town, just past the red door.
It's been open since late summer, but my good intentions never took me in.
Eclectic is too common a descriptor for this scene.
A child's sled, a hand, a skull, headless, vintage, bottles and sashes....
So, I went in.
Now I'm probably out of words for a bit, so just have a peek...
I got quite close to the floor to capture these busts.
I left with (with a shopping bag),
and turned around for a picture of the door.
I met the owner, a native returned to town from a stint in Chicago.
Chicago is where she rescued the Blue Eyed Dog,
which I met.
More schatzke on my way out.
But it may be in gardens all over town next summer.
No web page, but a Facebook page:
Good luck, Elizabeth
