Whenever I see signs like these, I think of Susan Patron's The Higher Power of Lucky (2007 Newbery winner). It's been years since I read the book, but I remember the main character wondering if it was the CHILDREN who were slow. :)
The children who made this l-o-o-o-n-g path clearly had a mission!
This photo and the one above it were taken 20 days apart, and I can't recall if it was the same street. All I know is that I very much wanted to go up that red carpet!
Maybe kids who make l-o-n-g paths and red carpets grow up to make
dragonflies that dance in the streets.
A particularly majestic cat...
Holy infant, mother and child...
A carousel horse gleams in a backyard. Who can say what magical journey it was on?
Bee cheerful. :)
This little dinosaur practically looked alive.
The one in the bottom right corner—not so much.
A flip-flop planter and a pipe-smoking sea captain. Fun!
I noticed this tree because it was wrapped in white lights.
Sometimes it's merely the angle of the sun that gives us new images to ponder.
Like this ordinary stucco wall...
...this lacy leaf shadow...
...and this busy bit of sand. How many stories are contained in these tracks?
Finally, a Little Free Library with some wise words from Dr. Seuss's Lorax:
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better. It's not.
