At last, it's MAY—a colorful month to begin exploring my new neighborhood in St. Paul!
(I moved here at the end of April.)
Years ago, someone decided that a little sapling in the lawn would be allowed to live.
It would NOT be pulled up or mowed down. That is one lucky, plucky tree.
I love the colors and textures here...seeds and stones.
Not sure if this is funny or creepy...
Real church for real "people." Hmmm...Those quotation marks make me a little nervous. What kind of people are we talking about here?
The best for last...I was walking along Winslow Avenue and was absolutely delighted to discover a short poem stamped in the sidewalk. And then I found some more! Turns out the poems are part of an ongoing public art project by the city of St. Paul. Here's a link to the Everyday Poems for City Sidewalk page.
A little less war
A little more peace
A little less poor
A little more eats.
I'm kind of glad I didn't know about this project beforehand. Coming across these poems totally out of the blue—what a surprise and a joy!
