Lovely light and shadows in this shot Diane. I really like the striped awnings and the shape of the old lamp-posts. An unusually coloured fire hydrant too?

Peggy noticed that, too. Don't know why, unless...hey, just looked it up and had NO idea! Color has to do with the flow strength of the particular hydrant. turbofuture.com/misc/The-Colors-Of-Fire-Hydrants-What-Is-The-Meaning-Of-Fire-Hydrant-Colors The first sentence spells out the problem with so many recommended standards in the USA.

Interesting article. When I was a kid, there was a contest in our town to paint the fire hydrants in cute ways: animals, people, polka dots, etc.

Bonjour Diane
La borne bleue a t-elle un rapport avec la note bleue des musiciens ? Je n'ai jamais entendu la note bleue mais votre photo m'aura permis de voir le borne bleue. Amitié. Jean Paul

Merci infiniment Diane pour cette si agréable vidéo. Hélas,je ne connaissais pas ces artistes mais leur musique me rappelle bien agréablement ma jeunesse. Il y a un petit vignoble pas trés loin de chez moi qui pousse sur des coteaux que l'on appelle les coteaux de Rosette. Le vin qui est produit sur cette colline s'appelle le "vin de Rosette". C'est un petit vin blanc doux. Dorénavant, quand j'en boirai ,je penserai à vous et à cette musique. Bien amicalement. Jean Paul

I am so glad you like it, Jean Paul! I love this music very much and have listened to (and read about) a lot of Blues music. Thank you so much for your nice story about the Rosette hillsides and vin de Rosette! It made me smile!
