Vacationing Could be a Walk Away.

 Been ages since I've posted on this blog, life has been entirely too busy.  A little kick start from a mini type of travel.  Over The Labor Day Weekend we attended the annual UA Arts Festival.  Spotted this unusual flower that requires no watering, no fertilizers, and no weeding!  AND it's made of re-cycled stuff.  Click to enlarge and take a look.  I love how at a time when things are turning drab in the yard with flowers gone I can still have a flower blooming.
Last year, at the same Arts Festrival I added the little bird sitting on a robin blue egg, and the year before Martini Drinking Toad.  These are positioned such that I can see them well from my kitchen window over the sink so I get lots of enjoyment from them.  One lone yellow Stella De Ora trying to photo bomb my yard

There are many different types of travels, some are close at hand, right in your own neighborhood.  Look up your cities calendar of events and take in these little mini vacations.  This art festival is within walking distance to our house, so we got exercise (anyone else a fitbit junky like me?), saw neighbors, supported our local arts department and brighten up our garden.


  1. I like the way you have positioned them. They could very well be regaling each other with stories! Guilty of visiting your blog after a very long time :)

  2. Hello there.
    Thanks for sharing. Just making a short pit stop from the A-Z Road Trip!

  3. Just checking around to see how folks are doing. Hope all is well with you.
