the best worst of the lot, flowers on the honor system, homeless homes

This is the  best/worst one yet, It is perfect in its exceptional question-ability. Is it sea or is it land.
across the street from the lawn gallery , flowers for sale. This stand has been there for years when the little girls who live there were wee , making cute little bouquets. Honor system/ donations and thank you. 

During the past two years there were no flowers. so glad to see them back again.
 

Down by the water front , the dog park and the poop plant, the homeless village is doing very well. There are more fences and gates now and a very pleasing little garden. Well settled, we need more.



Queen pride, thrown in because ...obvious...

The last of the peonies . There was some ruckus in the garden last night, broken geraniums , broken peonies, must have been territorial issues. There were no fireworks! A first, and when I went out and about there were no flags flying. ( just Dennis's ) That was telling. Folks are pissed off.

Every year we donate a huge sum to Planned Parenthood. Sometimes twice a year, one can designate where it may be used...one year we bought vasectomies. Usually we don't mind where it goes or how , just a good thing to contribute to.  We have upped the anti, again. Protect our girls!

  1. We donate to Planned Parenthood every year and will certainly do so again this year. That painting is bizarre. Looks like a kayaker balancing atop the pyramids!

    1. I am having difficulty making sense out of the painting, and what is that square bit eating the tip of the boat?
      GOOD, Planned parenthood really is the best!

  2. They are good, they do good. That painting is really weird. Not the artist's best work.

  3. I like the lawn gallery, quality aside. And do you suppose when the Queen wakes up every morning she says I feel (insert color) today.

    1. there is a lot of planning involve in the Queens' color outfits,
      Everything must be made of the same material ,same vat- even her umbrellas.

  4. That is certainly an interesting painting. I think the square bit may just be another wave. Very hard to tell.
    Now the bouquets- those are pure love. I would buy them.
    The queens make me smile. The homeless village gives me hope.

    1. Those flowers in the little girls stand are always so sweet, wild garden looking. LOVE the queen, she looks to be fading quickly, like hope....

  5. Karen Frances aka Anonymous: Linda Sue, I'm loving the colors in your posts. Today's painting made me laugh. And I love anything that makes me laugh an amused, joyful laugh these days (as opposed to the cynical, I-recognize-that-truth laugh, you know). That painting also makes good use of complimentary colors, an element I look for in a composition. That tiny housing village is something this community done good. We need more "done good" moments/monuments here. And the queen (!), wearing colors I can only dream to wear and not look sickly. And, yes, we have to keep Planned Parenthood healthy. Doing so may just keep me from feeling like I'm rowing for all I'm worth on a chunk of hilltop, trying to actually get somewhere, one oar-scoop at a time.

    1. hahaha one oar scoop at a time. The background of the painting is rather OK... the city with a castle looking affair.Hilarious the way the boat is positioned on the grass mound or what ever they are. I went by today , it is till there!
      Planned parenthood is our friend. I love PP.

  6. This latest mystery painting is truly a mystery - an action scene! Aside from the bold kayaker, it fits in well with the others. Who is in that bright red kayak, and why is he riding those... waves?
    That homeless village looks very quaint. Are there requirements to stay there?
    This has me wondering if donations to Planned Parenthood have increased since SCOTUS's revoke. I bet they have, and if so, what a nice lemonade from lemons.

    1. 275 million donated by Jeff Beso's ex wife, I am sure that people have upped their donations- after texas did its thang there was a steady river of donations.
      The homeless village does have rules, it is small they may be vetted, it is not a hotel, it is a community trying to get on its feet. They are not permanent digs, one must work to get employed to move on.

  7. I love the queen and am delighted to see her in rainbow colors--over much of her reign, I might add. I recognize a late 70's, early 80's Elizabeth in there.

  8. The homeless village is so colourful. Are the homes to be permanent so people can get settled and stay if they can't find work? Or are they just stay for a while then find somewhere else? Thank you for upping the ante. Here in Aus, far too many are now living in tents with kids and pets, because rental prices are jacked so high no one can afford them, also landlords prefer no pets and if possible no kids. These are people who had a place to live, then the landlord decided to sell, and of course the new owner wants to live in it himself or rent it for a much higher amount.

    1. Homeless individuals who are working, are disabled and have a source of income, or if they don’t have a source of income are willing to work with HomesNOW advocates to get one (either by applying for benefits or looking for work). Applicants are selected based on their ability to succeed in a community-living setting, and individuals are not eligible if they have outstanding warrants, are on the sex offender registry, or have a history of repetitive family violence or other repeat offenses.
      Also the site requires persons abstain from alcohol and drugs. If a person can not contribute financially at all, that person will work for the village doing odd jobs.
