It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, so today's blog post will mainly be a photographic journey through our past three days in Atlanta.
New summer Steve Madden shoes for me:
new summer Keds for easy livin':
Spring flowers along our favorite Midtown neighborhood walk:
Cross Vine along the Tuscany fence:
Johnny Jump-Ups at the front door of the Metropolis:
a stately iris on Penn:
Spiderwort (Tradescantia - what a cool name!) on Penn:
Wisteria on Myrtle:
Beautiful azaleas are everywhere:
and Vinca Major runs rampant along the sidewalks:
A few of my favorite homes:
We watched with interest last summer as this home was scraped and repainted lovingly by its owners. New flowers were planted in pots on the front porch. We've enjoyed its progress. Then this week as we walked by, we noticed that something was quite wrong:
We're not sure exactly what happened, but it seems that it has come off of its foundation or something:
I am very sad for the house, but doubly sad for its owners, who had taken so much pride in fixing it up.
This morning as we walked by, the demo crew was there. I suspect this house won't be there next time we walk our favorite walk.
A wonderful hood ornament on this chartreuse car:
Last night we went to the Braves/Dodgers game:
Our Braves won 6-1. It was nice to see our old favorite Andruw Jones, although in a Dodgers uniform. Chipper Jones hit two homeruns, which added to the excitement. It was also Fireworks Friday, so we enjoyed the post game entertainment as well.
