Roses and a variety of other flowers completely surround the building.
They fill the area between the curbs and the sidewalks. Little pathways were placed throughout the flowerbeds to allow access from curbside parking spots to the sidewalk.Beautiful flowers and trees make this corner special.
Roses, roses everywhere. Yellow roses. My favorite! Pale yellow. . .Bright yellow. . .Pink. Pale pink. . .Bright pink. . .Deep pink. . .Lavendar-pink. . .And red roses peeking through here and there.Right near the front entrance to the dentist office, a bit of whimsy. Garden art! Does it tell you anything about the dentist's hobby?Moving on toward home I stopped at the next corner to enjoy the sight of a steeple pointing high into the sky above the busy world below.Below the steeple, near the entrance to the church, a wooden sculpture carved from a big log, makes a statement. God's hand reaching down to man. Man reaching up to God!Down the street a ways is a little cottage that has been part of the neighborhood for a long time.Look at the sweet, little trim!And a few blocks away, another park. Just a tiny, little park. An odd-shaped little place of green at a point where three streets meet.Big rocks add to the beauty.And a bit of green. Beautiful green.At the corner where two major streets meet, a very big boulder. Comical, in a way. Does it look like a hippopotamus yawning? Or an elephant? I've watched mothers place their small children inside this rock and take their picture!From here I could look down the street and see the corner where I live. There was one more stop before I arrived home. A stop to capture the beauty of this gorgeous Dahlia.It seemed that the walk home was not long. It gave me a chance to see the world where I live up close. And to see things easily missed when traveling by car. More walks through neighborhoods nearby are planned. More chances to enjoy the fresh air, the friendly folks along the way and the special things that make my town a place I love to call home.
